Banks Peninsula Walking Festival 2018

Nau mai, Welcome to the 2018 Banks Peninsula Walking Festival. 

We invite you to join us on an exploration of Banks Peninsula this November walking through the beautiful landscapes that make it such a unique gem. 

There is something to suit all fitness levels, from gentle meanders around the historic towns of Lyttelton and Akaroa, to climbing the high volcanic peaks with their breathtaking panoramic views.

You will have the opportunity to explore Hinewai Reserve by night, take the ferry to Quail Island and appreciate the historical and geological significance of the Peninsula. We have rangers, conservationists, historians, geologists, artists, and many more passionate local guides who will lead, inform and inspire you along the way.

Special events this year include the formal openings of a new tramping hut on Ōtamahua/Quail Island and a family campground at the Le Bons Bay Langer Reserve. These events include walks exploring the areas the new facilities serve.

For fit walkers we offer the spectacular 8 over 800 CHALLENGE!  Conquer all eight Banks Peninsula Peaks over 800 meters high, doing a pair each weekend. You can do these walks individually, but let’s see how many of you can complete the challenge and gain a certificate to prove it!

There is something for everyone, so book early as places are limited and walks fill up fast.
