Why not take a 10km stroll along the wild west coast of New Zealand with Robert Hodgson and other guides with this coastal walk, linking Himatangi to Foxton along the west coast. This is our most popular walk.This year we are starting at Himatangi Beach to walk south to Foxton
For this walk, we will be dropped off by bus at Himatangi Beach, a 30 minute journey from the city, before starting your walk North towards Foxton Beach. We’ll be walking alongside one of the Southern Hemisphere’s largest sand dune fields, and we’ll get the chance to see local wildlife swimming, flying or crawling past.
Once we get to Foxton Beach, fish n’ chips will be on order for you to enjoy picnic style as the sun disappears for the evening. Alternatively, you can pack your own picnic meal to bring along with you.
Please ensure you wear appropriate walking footwear, bring warm clothing, and pack plenty of adequate drink and food.
