Due to Popular demand Bushwise Women have the BANKS PENINSULA TRACK back on their Programme of tours for women. This trip is just out of Christchurch in the South Island of New Zealand. See details of this tour and other tours in New Zealand HereDates: Sunday 01 March 2009 to Thursday 05 March 2009
This World renowned, 4 day tramp, which begins above the historic town of Akaroa, crosses private farmland and Hinewai Reserve. The track covers 35 kilometres often skirting the rugged volcanic coastline which plunges dramatically to a foaming sea and fringes a marine mammal sanctuary. The South East Bays of Banks Peninsula were not previously accessible to the public and the farmers have welcomed trampers by creating attractive accommodation.
Enjoy the wide open spaces, the waterfalls, rocky cliffs, beech forests, seals and penguins, going at our own pace.
This trip is suitable for those new to tramping. You will be walking up hill and down dale from 3 to 5 hours each day.
