  • Kapakapanui - Day Trip on Saturday?

    Hi all! I'll be going to Kapakapanui (about 60km from Wellington) on Saturday, leaving 10AM.The plan is to run the Kapakapanui loop (yes, run, this hill is a nice little cardio-trainer). So, we might do the loop in a bit under 4 hours. Have a look at the map (link here) or DOC website (link here) and let me know if you are interested. Achim

Thanks to alpine tramping boots and gaiters. I feared wet and cold feet on this tramp – that's what Kapakapanui is famous for! From the bottom, I could see the ...

This day trip is a medium trip, as it goes up to 1100 m... On Sunday I'll to Waikanae by train (9:14 from Wellington) and cycle for 30 minutes to the start of the track (a ...

  • Kapakapanui Day Trip

    Hi all,   I'll be running a day trip this Wednesday to Kapakapanui. It's a loop track that goes up past Kapakapanui Hut, to the summit, and then back down around to the car. The weather is looking good so hopefully we will get views out over Kapiti Island. As it is a day trip you will need to bring lunch, a rain coat, your head torch and ...
