I'm Marios, delivering the best of Aotearoa's nature walks to your device.
I've personally walked hundreds of New Zealand's tracks and spent months in libraries uncovering interesting information on New Zealand/Aotearoa. And you'll find a slice of that research on this page - enjoy!

This is one of the best examples of West Coast rainforest where the hues of green are infinite. There is a scaffolded rata, like the Avatar home tree, but one quantum scale down.
A great little rainforest walk that's great by day but almost better by night due to the various glowworm grotto's along the way. Bring your torch!
The start of the track is signposted from the southern end of Fox township, just after exiting the town on the left.
Keep left at the start into the no bike zone and weave through this primordial rainforest past convoluted rata, moss encrusted everything and a rushing stream.
Return via the same track or head right along Te Weheha Walkway, which is also a cycleway.

Great family walk. Come at night, bring a torch. Magical!
Walking through a rainforest in the night and watching thousands of glowworms was quite awesome.
Walking in the rainforest in the night, best when you can see the stars. It is magical.
We loved this! Great for doing with the kids!! It's amazing and we actually got to see a lot of glowworms!
An enchanting and unique night walk experience. The forest sparkled with glowworms. It was truly magical!!
A great little walk by day but at night the forest comes alive with twinkling glowworms. Great fun for all.
We went by ourselves (we saw some tours too) walking at night and it was really nice.
next to the highway but 20min youre feeling like in the deepest jungle.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
