A great way to hike Cradle Mountains if you prefer a bunk, hot shower, local wines and hot meal at the end of your day. Over six days you see a good variety of landscape and are well guided. Huts are warm, comfortable and companionable and food is amazing given it all has to

Not a bad thing to say about the trip, everything promised was delivered, staying in cabins took the worry out of hiking and the weight out of the pack. Walking about 12km per day with a 10kg pack, knowing at end of day was a hot shower and dinner prepared - couldnt get any

Hi there, The guides are really good at allowing for people to walk at their own pace. The group can spread out and generally there will be 1 guide toward the front of the group and 1 toward the back. Sometimes the faster walkers may need to wait for the group to catch up but it generally works itself out without becoming an issue. At lunch stops the lead guide will boil some water for hot drinks etc so people can keep warm. I hope this helps. Cheers,

In our group people walked at different paces but it wasn't a problem - never too long a wait, and besides, the waiting points were usually for a morning or afternoon snack, or lunch, and in a spot that was relaxing and pleasant to be in. The guides generally ensured that one of them was with the front group and the other near the back. Not much dawdling!

Hi Jim, Great idea for a 40th birthday. I think everyone else has answered this for me - average age is generally between 40 - 65, groups do vary though. Cheers, Ros

"All rooms are fairly equivalent. Comfort is relative. This is not city 5 star accommodation but for the wilderness it's excellent."
"No room choice - the tour group members need to decide among themselves who will sleep where"
"all the huts have the same design except the kia ora hut. The right-hand side first room has a spectacular view. pick that room if possible"
"If you walk fast, you can choose your room first!"
"Upstairs and along the corridor for best least noise during the night"
