There’s nothing quite like a lovely long walk after being a little cooped up on a cruise ship. Cruise ship tours are a delight, but us land-lovers tend to appreciate a change of terrain. Fortunately, the Bay of Plenty region has a myriad of marvellously unique locations to see and explore. Whether you like to scale mountains or scuttle through caves, stroll along beaches or soak up the sight of a waterfall, our expert walking tour guides have the perfect bay of plenty tour for you!

Enjoy worry-free day trips and explore stunning New Zealand scenery all in the space of one day! Stretch your legs and see what the beautiful Bay of Plenty has to offer. Take your pictures, break in your walking boots, then return to your cruise and continue your relaxing holiday.
Our walking tours are ideal for small adventures packed with scenery, flora and fauna. With so many diverse landscapes in the Bay of Plenty region, you’ll be in for a treat no matter which location you select for your walking trip.
We’re fortunate to be surrounded by so many breath-taking waterfalls here in the Bay of Plenty, so we would encourage you to select one or two of these as your destination point. Walking to the waterfalls is always a visual treat. You’ll pass through acres of lush New Zealand bush, moving seamlessly through the trees to lookout points that’ll take your breath away. Vast expanses of emerald-green farmland frame the roads between your cruise ship and your walking tour destination, so make the most of the scenery and enjoy the drive, too!
