Track Safety

The Paparoa Track route is remote and exposed and can be subject to cloud, mist and rain/snow – sometimes at any time of the year. As a responsible operator we strongly recommend that a Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is carried within each party.

For those not owning or having access to a PLB, you can hire one from the Hokitika or Greymouth iSites. If you have any questions in regards to a PLB, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
