The next Got To Get Out adventure is an overnight hike to the awesome Pauautea Hut on the Pirongia Forest (near Hamilton!). This adventure is for hikers with at least an intermediate fitness (this trail is listed as 'advanced' on the DOC website and is a 4 hour walk at least) so please make sure you are fit and have good gear if you plan to tackle this adventure in NZ winter! It is capped at 20 people, so get in quick. Past trips have included the Tongariro Crossing, Pinnacles, Waitomo Caves and several other epic adventures!

If you are uncertain if you have the right gear or experience, please message GTGO founder Rob at before applying.
Gear list will include:
- sleeping bag and bag liner
- boots
- water proof wet weather gear
- 60l pack (minimum)
- own food, and own cooker
- water / hydration pack
- first aid kit including emergency blanket
- possibly a tent for those who RSVP late (you can't confirm the beds at this hut, so it is first come first served!)

The hike will depart Raw Kitchen Ponsonby Road at 8am (our normal meeting point!) and we will drive 2 x mini vans to the start of the trail. We will head back to debrief at Chapel Bar and Bistro around 4pm on Sunday for complimentary pizza and the chance to win an awesome prize from Macpac.

Any customers of this trek get a special discount code from Macpac to help you buy your gear more cheaply too! Look out for this code once you have paid for your ticket, it is wholesale prices which can be as much as 70% off some items. Only ticket holders can purchase discounted gear.

Price includes:
- return transport and drivers
- experienced guides
- night in the hut
- pizza at Chapel
- some beers from our friends at DB Export (you have to carry them in though!)
- Macpac discount
- we will build in a fun stop off on the way there or back (hot pools or similar).

This trip is limited to 20 people (2 vans, and limited space in the hut) so confirm your space fast!


Is the following weekend. The call will be made on the Friday night if it is too dangerous to go (we still go if it is raining!). No refunds so be prepared for a reschedule.
