Waiheke Walking Festival (15 – 24 November) is the biggest eco-tourism event on the island. The festival was established in 2010 and since then it has been developed by an enthusiastic group of locals, with the aim of attracting visitors to the Island, highlighting its beauty, but importantly in a low-impact way on the environment.  For the past nine years the eco-event has grown in popularity with over 60% of participants coming from off island – including the South Island, Spain, and Australia. This year Waiheke Walking Festival will be celebrating their tenth year! There are over 40 walks available, across ten days, catering to a variety of interests and abilities.

Join us for 10 days of free guided walks on beautiful Waiheke Island. Celebrate all that Waiheke has to offer while walking alongside fantastic subject experts talking about wine, olives, history, conservation and everything Waiheke.

From short vineyard strolls to all day adventures and everything in between, there really is something for everyone. Stay a few days and enjoy fantastic transport, accommodation and meal specials during the Festival – the perfect excuse for a spring holiday on Waiheke.
