Being one of the quietest and most spiritual Great Walks, Lake Waikaremoana offers unbeatable natural wilderness and scenery. As it's the only Great Walk to be managed by local iwi instead of the Department of Conservation, you will be welcomed into the homeland of Ngai Tūhoe, and upon departure you will leave with a sense of connection, rejuvenation and hauora (wellness).

Highlights: 

Take a dip in the cool, crystal-clear water after a long day’s hike, soak up the rich spiritual history of the area, take a short walk (1-hour return) to the beautiful Korokoro Falls, and climb to the top of the Panekire Bluff to enjoy the breath-taking panoramic views of Lake Waikaremoana.
