  • Wonderful 4-day walk around every day, which is very different. We started at Brown Hut and ended at Kohaihai shelter. The first day is the hardest, because you constantly uphill runs here, but also the second day is not wrong, because this is the longest distance. Day 3 and 4 were for our pure enjoyment. The beautiful surroundings, many beautiful birds and, in our case, the great weather. The many sandflies at the Heaphy Hut are a small drawback, but heck, you also get over it. The trick is to keep moving, the sandflies are too slow to enter if you keep moving. If you are in the summer when the weather is also not too crazy, then get yourself through the tide tables for the last day. Normally you can just walk all day and it is almost all day eb.
