Be one of the first to walk New Zealand’s newest and 10th Great Walk. Experience the spectacular natural wilderness of the Paparoa National Park by crossing the Paparoa Range. The Paparoa Walk takes you over alpine tops, through limestone karst landscapes and thriving rainforests, and provides breath-taking views.
Most people will walk this beautiful new track over three days, and the critical factor will be what huts you have been able to book. A midday start will mean you will probably stay overnight at the Ces Clark hut, nestled on the bush line with spectacular views from the large sunny glass windows. Staying at Ces Clark and walking in three days will mean it’s a longish day up onto the tops and past Moonlight hut and onto the Pororari hut – a 32 km walk! If you do take this option, it will be a short 16.4km walk out to Punakaiki.
