Kiwi Camino

  • Hi and thanks for your interest in Hikoi Rangihoua (A Kiwi Camino).
    The Camino planning is in recess until the end of May 2018, when we hope to add some new group guided walk options to this site.
    ​​​​​​​Meantime, for your diary, we can confirm we will be going ahead with a Hikoi to the Bay of Islands in December this year. Details still to be finalised, but will start at Vaughan Park on the afternoon of Sunday 2nd Dec and return early evening Thurs 6th Dec 2018.
    To illustrate the type of walk we have been doing, please see the example below of Parnell to Puhoi Hikoi undertaken in March 2018.
    Meantime if you have any queries on Hikoi Rangihoua please make contact with Geoff at Geoff.harper@outlook.co.nz
    Thanks from the Hikoi Rangihoua Team. more»

  • Pilgrimage NZ
    Pilgrimage is about engaging with a place and its people in a way that is different from a tour. Both have their place. On pilgrimage we pause, take time to reflect and to ask questions. Pilgrimage is a spiritual experience, often transformative, sometime uncomfortable.

    As one recent pilgrim said: ”Pilgrimage takes you into the experience, and into the life of the person the place is about”. This echoes what one ancient pilgrim said: “Others merely hear, we see and touch.” And we do.
