Heaphy Track

The Heaphy Track is located in the Kahurangi National Park in the northwest corner of New Zealand’s South Island. The Heaphy Track is New Zealand's most diverse and longest Great Walk. Experience a well-formed trail through an ever changing landscape of tussock lands and lush forests to the wild yet beautiful West Coast.

What to Expect

Amazing Diversity

Travel through many different landscapes including the expansive tussock lands of the Gouland Downs and lush forests where giant native trees soar.


Wild Coasts

Emerge days later to the wilderness of the South Island's west coast with its rugged nikau palm studded forests and windswept beaches.

Close Encounters

If you are fortunate, you might hear the call of a Great Spotted Kiwi at night and by day see the rare carnivorous land snail (Powelliphanta).

Remote Sunset

Watch the sun go down with a tipple of your choosing at the Heaphy Beach, far from the world's hustle and bustle.
