We run a huge range of hikes and tramps, catering for beginners through to experienced transalpine trampers comfortable with the use of ice axe and crampons.

Everything from gentle day hikes to serious multiday adventures.

So you’re bound to find something to suit you in our tramping programme!

Check out the summary below then dive into the linked pages for more detailed info.

Sublime Auckland day walks

We’ve got a great programme of both midweek and weekend day walks – and yes, non-members are welcome.

Join us and you’ll head to the very best tramping locations the Auckland region has to offer.

All our day walks are well-organised, structured and led by experienced leaders. With transport arranged and no need to book, all you have to do is turn up … and hike!

We also run very popular ‘Day Walk Weekends’ with campground accommodation on Saturday night and a day walk on both Saturday and Sunday.

These are generally limited to around 20 participants and must be booked. They can fill fast, so be sure to get in quickly.

Check out our day walks page for general information, and our calendar to line up your next ATC day hike.

Awesome overnight tramps

Every month we schedule a superb overnight tramp somewhere in the upper North Island.

Weekend Tramp at hutShutes Hut, Ruahine Forest Park

Typically, we head away in Big Blue on Friday night and return Sunday evening, giving two glorious days to enjoy our wonderful North Island ranges and parks.

We’ll normally have 3 or 4 groups doing different tramps, from Easy to Fit. Our weekenders can be camping or hut-based.

And on long weekends it’s even better, as we make the most of the extra day(s) available.

Head to our Overnight and Weekend Tramps page for more info. 

Excitement in spades – our extended multiday tramps

Most years we’ll have a week-long circuit or through tramp in one of our great North Island ranges. Sometimes two.

Tussock ridges, river valleys, wonderful bush feature on these trips.

Trip length and difficulty will vary depending on terrain and distance.

And just in case you thought we’re anti the South Island, not a chance! Our Summer Trips programme heads to the mainland every year. We have various ‘Christmas’ trips from around 27 December of varying duration and intensity.

And then in February we repeat the dosage with our (oddly named we admit) ‘Interim Trips’ to another superb South Island location.

PLUS, we’ll normally have a week-long low-level winter tramp making the most of the South Island’s stunning winter landscapes.

And after that we head out on 'Safari'. With Big Blue providing transport and mainly camping grounds the accommodation, we spend around 2 weeks of mostly day walks exploring the nooks and crannies of some of the most scenic regions of NZ.
