We welcome all our walkers in our Lodge from 3.00pm. After a meet and greet session with your hosts, you can discover our lovely water garden and relax in one of the many cozy outdoor corners. Or simply relax with a coffee or beer from your private daybed and soak up the wonderful nature that surrounds us together with the panoramic views over the Bay. You can listen to the sound of water or play in it in our heated mineral swimming pool. The choice is yours!
Late afternoon we will have to take you out of your dream and will invite you for a short, guided walk in one of the last remnants of original forest in Pohara. The rata trees and limestone formations are really extraordinary and could be plucked from a Hobbit movie décor!

A short slide show will illustrate the unique beauty and wilderness of the Top of the South and give you a good impression of the great walking adventure that is waiting for you. Next we will give you a good insight in all the details and appointments of The Bay Walk so you can start your walking experience with confidence and complete worry free!
