A typical day trip runs from 08:30 am to 17:30, though exact timing will depend on the conditions of the day and the group.  

We typically run our day hikes from June through to the end of October. 

Exact meeting details will be provided in a pre-trip email sent one-week prior to your trip.

These hikes are intended to be widely accessible, however, participants should be prepared to:
  • Spend the day outside in variable conditions — including in rain, snow, and hot weather (see gear list).
  • Travel over rough terrain (depending on the hike, this may include sections or snow, bush, or uneven terrain).
  • Hike for up to 8 hours and be able to carry approximately 7kg uphill. 
Questions about the suitability of this trip? Send us an email. We’re happy to set up private trips to suit your needs whenever possible.
