Scenic Walks around Kaikoura

There are many scenic walks on offer, the most popular being the Peninsula walk which goes from the Seal Colony at Jimmy Armers Beach through to South Bay Reserve and offers a easy to moderate half day walk. Short walks explore the peninsula as well as the slopes of Mount Fyffe. There is an interesting symmetry here. You can stand on the beach or the peninsula in the morning with an excellent view of Mount Fyffe. By afternoon, you can be standing on Mount Fyffe, which affords you the reverse view of the peninsula. Longer walks in the area include the Kōwhai-Hāpuku circuit, a 2-3 day route that follows two river valleys behind Mount Fyffe, or the easier, private Kaikoura Coast Track further south. On foot, it is less than an hour’s walk from Kaikoura to the Peninsula Walkway. The Mount Fyffe tracks are too far to walk to, although a shuttle bus currently provides transport.
