Bush & Mountain Walking
Mountain Valley provides the perfect 'base camp' from which to embark on all sorts of walking expeditions. Our unique location amongst the hills and mountains of the Maunguhururu and Kaweka ranges enables you to use us as a setting off point for your walking adventure, be it short and leisurely or lengthy and arduous.
After a gentle couple of hours' walk in stunning country?
Take one of our guide maps and wander the forest trails and tracks around our 260 acre property.
Want to walk independently in native bush within easy reach of Mountain Valley?
Take one of the Department of Conservation walks ranging from 20 minutes to a full day in the Boundary Stream reserve, just 40 minutes from the lodge along great panoramic unsealed country roads. At the end of the day head back to us for a hearty meal and a drink in the lodge, or continue to Napier direct from your walk.
No transport? Leave it to us.
We will transfer you to your start point and collect you at your journey's end. Our drivers have extensive experience and local knowledge about the access roads to your walking area, taking the weight of organising your drop offs and pickups off your shoulders. For our guests we offer a shuttle and pick up service from Mountain Valley to the Department of Conservation's Boundary Stream Reserve. See our prices for costs of our shuttle services.
