The North West Circuit offers challenging multi-day tramping around Rakiura/Stewart island’s northern coast. It’s a great trip for the fit and well-equipped tramper.
Typically completed in 10 days, extra legs such as the Rakeahua Valley and Doughboy Bay can easily be added onto the North West Circuit. Or you can walk the Southern Circuit Track separately. Either way, a water taxi to Freshwater Landing will get you started!
Many trampers take advantage of our water taxi services to shorten their trip. Cut and paste desired locations into your itinerary, or simply get to those remote locations more quickly.
The Department of Conservation’s Rakiura National Parks web page can help with tramping itineraries, weather forecasting, equipment preparation and track and hut information.
