Savages on the Kaikoura Coast Track













Home | Page Title





The Kaikoura Coast Track is a 25 mile walking track located on the northeast coast of New Zealand's South Island. We walked for 3 days under mostly bright blue skies, staying in farm houses overnight. It was great.

We walked about 8 miles each day. Easy going as the packs were transported by vehicle

Kelly went by vehicle too, as he still is recovering from knee surgery

We were very lucky with the weather. Just prior to our arrival this area had a cold & wet storm

The track looks out over the vastness of the Pacific Ocean. The distant mountains had fresh snow

The 3 hour walk along the beach was slow going in soft sand but the views were stunning
