Side Trips & Other Options
When we were on our trip on the Te Araroa Trail we quickly realized that there is so much more to see than what we had time for. Before we left, we highlighted a few trips and alternates of the trail that we wanted to do (ones that wouldn’t require a ton of extra logistics). These are only a few of many side trips and alternates that exist. There are lots of additional options if you want to put in the time to research and develop them. All of these side trips and alternates listed below are located on the South Island. We did all of these (except the Dart Track and the Cascade Saddle) along with the Te Araroa in our 100 days of walking.
