"Eco tourism at its best"
Two Pa's treks are on offer: the 'Cross Island Trek' and the 'Discovery Nature Walk'.
Escorted by Pa's nephew Bruce, the 'Cross Island Trek' travels to the base of the Needle then on to Wigmore Falls. It is a strenuous hike that requires a good standard of fitness. It is not suited for those with heart, ankle, knee or hip problems. Transport and light lunch is included. Tours operate Monday-Friday, weather permitting.
Pa retired from cross island trekking in May 2018 after completing his 5000th trek. Escorted by Pa himself, the less strenuous 'Discovery Nature Walk' in the mountains takes in a noni plantation, taro fields, rainforest, and a sacred Marae (meeting place). The tour operates Tuesday and Thursday, and transport, and light lunch is included.
