My goal is to walk the length of New Zealand in two sections. I am starting by hiking the North Island from Cape Reinga to Wellington. This section of the trail is approximately 1700kms long and I expect to take around 70 days to complete it. I will be setting off on 2nd December this year.

Why have I decided to do this? There are many reasons. But mainly I am motivated by a desire to get outdoors and experience the back country of my beautiful home land. And there is no better way to experience it than on foot, taking The Path Less Travelled. So please follow me on my journey down New Zealand’s Long Pathway, Te Araroa.
