What to expect
Experience part of the Te Araroa Trail and Wellington’s newest walking track - the vertigo-inducing Paekakariki Escarpment. We begin in Wellington with a harbourside stroll, before taking a pleasant train ride out to the Kāpiti Coast.  We then escape into a world of spectacular views over glimmering seas. Discover the conquests of Te Rauparaha, learn about the unique ecology, and the challenges of constructing a rail line (and track) through such rugged terrain.  The walk ends at a peaceful seaside village, where lunch at a funky, laid-back cafe awaits. Total walking distance = 12 km (approx), with some steep climbs (lot's of steps!). Starts at Wellington i-SITE at 8:45am. Returns to Wellington Train Station by 5:00pm. Requires moderate fitness and comfortable walking shoes. Expect well-formed but steep and narrow track. This tour is not suitable for people with heart conditions or vertigo. Bring suitable clothing (avoid denim), sun hat, camera.
