Hiking Tours with Lake Hawea Tours

Lake Hawea Tours offer full day and multi day hiking options in New Zealand’s spectacular back country, from a leisurely lakeside walk to a mountain adventure. Our guides have the experience and expertise to show you a good time. If one day is not enough for you let us tailor a multi day adventure to your liking.

The old Bridal track to May West bivouac – duration 7-8 hrs

This is a full day adventure hike ascending some 650m in altitude, a good level of fitness is required. We climb the Manuka Spur and follow a main ridge before sidling into the May West Bivouac, an old historic hut.

This hike offers mind blowing views of Lake Hawea and the surrounding mountains. This is a tough rewarding hike not for the faint-hearted.

The Lakesider – duration 6-8 hrs

If a more leisurely walk is your thing instead of an arduous climb we can hike along the 4×4 track to the upper reaches of the lake. This option is backed up by 4×4 support.
