* To all interested attendees, please note this is a HARD / Advanced graded hike - you need to very fit (able to hike 8 hours a day on tough terrain). You should have some multi day hiking experience plus suitable gear to join this trip. Message us to confirm you meet this criteria before buying a ticket! Aged 16+ only please. We will ALL be tenting (BYO tent) as huts are full in Easter.

***********************************************************************************

Have you #GottoGetOut and hike around Mt Taranaki? Join us this Easter as we hike the whole way around Mt Taranaki. Hosted by GTGO founder Rob (and maybe Jo), who hiked this exact route twice last year. They said "it's really tough".

This trip will take place from Friday morning (departing Auckland) to midday Monday. You may meet the bus along the way. Limited people may meet us at the start of the track. This four day hike will start from North Egmont Visitor Centre.

This is an Advanced tramping track that passes through scenic forests, rivers, and alpine scenery. You will need to have a good fitness and be able to walk up to10 hours per day of hard hilly terrain, and deep mud in places, and slippery river crossings. Weather can be very changable.

Transport and hosting is included in your ticket though please note it is NOT a guided experience in the true sense - it is a group collective hike where each person manages their own gear food etc. You need to have checked maps and been involved in route planning (meetings and emails will happen pre trip departure).

You will need to bring your own very lightweight tent for camping and/or bring your own Backcountry passes for the huts (price extra). Last year there was no guarantee of hut availability, on a busy Easter, so don't count on staying in huts.

We will be leaving Auckland early Friday morning, starting the hike Friday midday from North Egmont to Holly Hut.

Hiking all day Saturday, Sunday and finishing Monday afternoon back at the Visitor Center, then driving back to Auckland that evening.

Gear list that you will need includes

- waterproof pants and jacket

- leather or similar (grippy, supportive, waterproof) boots. Over the ankle support. You must have worn them before! (first time boots can really create blisters)

- hat / sun protection / beanie (you get all seasons on this trek)

- layers including merino, hut clothes, warm layers

- water bladder: 3L

- food for 5 day (Friday, Sat, Sun, Mon) - one day emergency food. Think light weight / high energy / also snacks for as you walk (like scroggin etc)

- Tent (small), you should share 1 between 2 to share the weight, you need your own sleeping mat, light, camp gear like cookers (share 1 between 2), pots and pans

- Map, GPS, PLB all highly recommended though trip hosts have these.
