Looking like a land-locked fiord, Lake Waikaremoana is perched high in the mountains of Te Urewera National Park. In recognition of its beautiful scenery and important natural features, the Lake Waikaremoana Track is classed as one of New Zealand's "Great Walks."

We have thoroughly explored and researched the area so we can provide the most comfortable and rewarding way to discover the forgotten wilderness of Lake Waikaremoana. Journey with us through isolated Maori settlements, into the heart of the North Island's largest tract of untouched native forest.

Our two guided walking options are designed to inspire and challenge the enthused walker and nature lover:

Lake Waikaremoana Guided Walk

The Lake Waikaremoana Guided Walk is a four-day, fully guided hike on the Great Walk track. Imagine hiking 46 kilometres of walking trail through primordial rainforest, amidst rare and unique birdlife (such as the kiwi), while soaking up magnificent views of endless bush-clad hills, serene lakes and crystal clear rivers.

Relish the challenge of this stunning wilderness hike, while enjoying the luxuries of delicious New Zealand style food, fine wine, and having to carry only a small pack.

Urewera Discovery Tour

Our more leisurely, three-day Urewera Discovery Tour allows you to explore the remarkable Urewera region through the many short hikes and attractions available, from a comfortable base.

Two nights are spent in a fully-equipped, local lodge with hot showers and all the comforts of home, while each day is spent exploring different beautiful and interesting locations. A variety of hikes boast clear sparkling lakes, stunning waterfalls, ancient indigenous forest, and spectacular geological formations, all cloaked in Maori history and legends.

Walking Legends professional guiding service includes: hiking equipment, Rotorua return transport, gear cartage, accommodation, all meals, snacks and drinks.

All trips are run according to our Environmental Policy. We are New Zealanders with a passion for the area and extensive knowledge of the flora, fauna and history you will encounter.

Join us for the adventure of a lifetime!

All our trips are run according to our Environmental Policy, which incorporates the Department of Conservation's Environment and Water Care Codes.

The bush is a taonga - a treasure for all. It must be preserved for future generations.

The Waikaremoana environment is an exceptional and fragile natural ecosystem. We endeavour to keep learning about the ecological processes at work and how we can best operate within them, while enhancing our visitors appreciation of the area's unique natural and cultural resources.

Our philosophy is education through experience: Maximum enjoyment with minimum impact.

Small groups enable us to achieve these objectives, and allow our clients to enjoy a true wilderness experience.
