This option combines a day of walking with our most popular day trip, Astrolabe Explorer. You walk the heart of the park section of the coastal track from Medlands Beach (Bark Bay) arriving at Anchorage, nicely located in the National Park. Spend the night either in the hut or camping before kayaking home on the second day.
Meet us on day one and we will organise all of your gear, and Sea Shuttle drop-offs so that you can enjoy the first day hiking to Anchorage with just a day pack (gear transfer included). Spend the first night at Anchorage and meet your guide at 10am the next morning to do the Astrolabe Explorer trip back to Kaiteriteri.
