farmwalks

Pakira Farmwalks has evolved from our long standing farmstay business to offering walks to corporate, private and local groups and clubs. We are currently offering a limited offer for larger walker groups in conjunction with Camp Raukawa – see below.

Pakira Farmwalks offers you a rural escape like no other. Enjoy peaceful walks through our privately owned sheep and beef farm. Witness spectacular views of Mt Ruapehu and Mt Taranaki and NZ native bush as you make your way through gradual terrain with the odd short climb to the top.

During your walk you may also experience farming in action - stock mustering, drenching, dipping, sheep shearing, fencing or just the 4wd motorbike and the dogs stopping to have a chat as they pass you. This is dependent on what is happening on the farm at that time.

Escape the rat race and relish the beauty of nature - the birds singing, streams trickling, breathe in the fresh rural air and walk amongst the farm animals.

Walks are on established tracks, taking 4-6 hours. Shorter walks available if required.

Pakira Farmwalks offers walking packages with farmstay cottage accommodation (sleeps 5) or day walks for groups of 8 or more – a great option for a day outing or team bonding experience. For larger groups please see below.

Season: 1 October–30 April

Southern Walk (full day)

The easier of the two walks which starts at the woolshed, has views of the Mangawhero River, diverse farmland, streams and dams and meanders all the way to a set of yards at the back of the farm. This is an ideal place to stop for lunch.

You then have a steady climb to the highest point on the farm – our airstrip which is 550 metres above sea level. Here you will have breathtaking views of Mr Ruapehu, Mt Taranaki and ridges and ridges of farmland for as far as the eye can see. Its then all down hill from here, with views of an expansive area of native bush back to our cosy cottage.

Northern Walk (full day)

Our more challenging of the two walks takes you from the woolshed and up our main track to our airstrip which is 550 metres above sea level. Here there are uninterrupted views of Mt Ruapehu, Mt Taranaki and ridges and ridges of farmland for as far as the eye can see. You then walk beside native bush across a ridge line giving great views of the valley and farm yards below. Heading back down to road level you have great views of our homestead, cottage and the Kakatahi school.
