Lake Waikaremoana lies within the Te Urewera National Park on New Zealand’s North Island. This trek starts on the southern shore of the lake in Onepoto and ends in Hopuruahine in the north.

On this 4-day journey we’ll be following the shoreline of the lake and discovering the extraordinary beauty of the park, accompanied by a passionate certified guide.

There are many rare species of native plants in the park, as well as colorful birds such as parakeets and forest parrots. You’re also likely to encounter deer, pigs and possums.

One highlight of the walk is the stunning panoramic view of the lake you can enjoy from Panekire Bluff. You’ll also visit Korokoro falls, a majestic waterfall which lies in a lush rainforest, discover hidden beaches and marvel at the towering podocarp trees.

Accommodation comes in the form of cozy huts spread out along the trail, which even have heating for the colder months.

New Zealand is a country with abundant natural wonders, and this tour around Lake Waikaremoana exemplifies that fact. Join me on this exciting tour and see how the beauty of the park leaves you feeling inspired!
