Daily Itinerary


Friday 7th September


Our day will begin at 9am at the Wholemeal Café in Takaka. There will be time to grab a coffee and introduce your selves to the rest of the group.


Then we will make our way to Wainui where we will split into two groups. The walkers will head off to Wharawharangi Beach which is a stunning walk through the native bush, ending at one of Abel Tasman’s beautiful beaches. The others will do a more challenging walk/run over Gibbs Hill, this starts and finishes in the same spot. Both will be guided so no need to worry if you’ve not done it before.


After the walk you may want to head straight to Zatori to check in or maybe stop off in Takaka to grab some lunch (not included)

After a leisurely lunch we will meet up at 3pm for a boot camp style workout which will be a great bonding session and all fitness levels are catered for.


Time to Relax, at 6pm we have Yoga with Sammy, unwind after a pretty busy first day, if it’s cold the fire will be lit, bliss!!


7pm Dinner – Grab a glass of wine (not included) and get to know your fellow active relaxers over a great meal. Zatori has prepared us a wonderful menu for the weekend. Our host Tracey and her staff are amazing and we always feel very spoilt.


Saturday 8th September


7.30am Breakfast is served, start the day right with a healthy breakfast and a cup of coffee or tea.


You have a choice of three-morning activities (chosen in advance)

  1. MTB to Aorere Goldfields - this is not technical but does involve some steep uphills so you will need to have a good level of fitness.

  2. Walk (venue to be decided)

  3. SUP/Kayak If you want to take things a bit easier, there is nothing better than getting out on the water.


12.30 we will meet for lunch at Courthouse Café Collingwood (not included) in. This is an easy walk from Zatori so no transport to worry about.


After lunch, we will head off as a group to Wharariki. Here we take another stunning walk through farmland to the famous Wharariki beach. Don’t forget your camera!


Before dinner there is an opportunity to sit in on a presentation by Renee of Bay Fitness.


Seminar on personalised health - using your genetic potential to get the most out of life.


This is followed by dinner in the Zatori restaurant at 7.30pm



Sunday 9th September


Our day starts at 7.30am with breakfast, when we will then break into three groups.


  1. Walk up Mount Burnett, this is not technical but it is relatively steep, so a good set of lungs required.

  2. MTB to Aorere Goldfields - this is not technical but does involve some steep uphills so you will need to have a good level of fitness.

  3. SUP/Kayak so if the legs are a bit tired after yesterday or you just want a relaxed morning, this one is for you.


​​​This will be followed by lunch at the Courthouse Café Collingwood (not included).
