Tackle one of Wellington's newest and wildest walks, across steep coastal cliffs with spectacular views over the Kāpiti Coast.

Experience part of the Te Araroa Trail and Wellington’s newest walking track - the vertigo-inducing Paekakariki Escarpment. We begin in Wellington with a harbourside stroll, before taking a pleasant train ride out to the Kāpiti Coast.  We then escape into a world of spectacular views over glimmering seas. Discover the conquests of Te Rauparaha, learn about the unique ecology, and the challenges of constructing a rail line (and track) through such rugged terrain.  The walk ends at a peaceful seaside village, where lunch at a funky, laid-back cafe awaits.
Total walking distance = 12 km (approx), with some steep climbs (lot's of steps!). Starts at Wellington i-SITE at 8:45am. Returns to Wellington Train Station by 5:00pm.
Requires moderate fitness and comfortable walking shoes. Expect well-formed but steep and narrow track. This tour is not suitable for people with heart conditions or vertigo. Bring suitable clothing (avoid denim), sun hat, camera.
