Te Araroa - New Zealand's Trail
The entire trail was officially opened in December, 2011 - it's one of the longest walking trails in the world and has been 10 years in the making. Bay of Islands Water Taxi- your trip provider - is proud to be able to help visitors experience the Far North section of the Te Araroa trail.
Various ranges and styles of accommodation are available in Paihia, or Russell. We like Beachside Holiday Park in Paihia - bookings are essential during the peak season.
The trail passes through Beachside Holiday Park on the way from Paihia to Opua. The water taxi can depart from the jetty at the park.
Trips up the Waikare inlet can only occur at high tide so ring us to find out what time the tide is.
