Over 55 walks on and around the island


Prices vary




The much-loved festival returns November 2020 for its eleventh year, offering participants the chance to spend time on Waiheke Island, walking in areas not normally open to the public.

The 2020 Waiheke Walking Festival offers more than 55 walks over 18 days, from 11-29 November.

The walks vary to ensure all abilities and interests are catered for. The walks cover everything from photography, music, conservation, fitness, offer an opportunity to walk on private land, many are family-friendly, while some of the walks end up at Waiheke’s vineyards to allow participants to enjoy the local food and wine on offer.

The festival is supported by sponsors, which means many of the walks (outside of those finishing at a vineyard) are offered at no or little cost to participants.

With COVID-19 now a reality in our world, all walks will operate with limited numbers, including guides and volunteers. So tickets will be snapped up quick!

So grab a group of friends and use the festival as a good excuse to become healthier and fitter, and support local, whilst having fun!
