If your itinerary can't quite stretch to fit in an overnight stay on the island, this is the next best thing!

This fully guided experience explores the ngahere (forests) and stories of Kapiti, with a delicious morning tea and lunch included. In a small group, hosted for the day by an experienced guide, manuhiri (visitors) will visit both Rangatira and Waiorua to experience the diversity of wildlife, landscape, and unique history the island has to offer. 

You'll enjoy freshly baked scones and muffins with a pot of coffee at the Historic Whare while learning to identify the calls of kōkako, tīeke, and many more. 

After walking the Rangatira loop you'll be transferred to Waiorua to enjoy a picnic lunch, leaving time to choose between the Ōkupe lookout or Boulder Bank coastal loop walks before meeting the afternoon ferry off Waiorua.

Please note: the coastal walk is generally closed between 1 October & 31 March due to nesting seabirds.

You will have around 6.5hrs on the island.
