The Heaphy Track is one of New Zealand's Great Walks. Best navigated from east (Golden Bay - see start point on map) to west. The Heaphy Track takes in alpine, rainforest and beach sections as you make your way towards the end point, just north of Karamea.
If you only have one day then traveller feedback suggests that the Karamea side is best - Scott's beach is a stunner!
This walk can be guided as well, there are several different guiding companies offering great service.

We did it for six days. It was nice to see the change of the nature within the track.
The first steps were surrounded by green rainforest and the second day was spent with a mountain walk, the third was shaped by stunning views and the last day was spent on the beach.

Very beautiful bush walk. Beautiful drive to get there too. Typical West Coast beaches are untouched. Just don't let the sandflies put you off!

Great walk!! Wonderful landscapes, especially at the Heaphy Hut. Be aware of sandflies! And the weather!
Wonderful walk, great diversity of landscapes. Campsite and huts are well arranged. Must do.
Fantastic scenery, many variations, perfect length, brief climb on day 1, hard return to the starting point.
We did only a one day tour but it was so beautiful. We relaxed a little bit at the sea at the end.
Little expensive for the huts on popular hikes but it for the walk quality.
A little expensive but would do it again and again - they are incredible!
Friendly rangers, landscape changes everyday, beautiful nature.
Excellent facilities, well prepared walking track, map of the track is really bad because the track looks really steep, but it is not that way.
Gorgeous walk, loved it!
