Arrive at Ridge Top Farm Glamping Site between 4pm and 7pm where your hosts Sarah or Angus Gilbertson will check you in. Make yourselves at home and between 5 - 7pm (depending on your arrival) we will deliver you a delicious 2 course dinner all prepared for you to finish off on the BBQ. Provisions for the following day's breakfast will also be delivered and we will give you your walk briefing and maps for the next day.
Day 1 (Mountain View Loop - 10.5km)
After breakfast, we will deliver you your packed lunch (approx 10.30am). You will then be all ready to begin your walk. We recommend you to leave the campsite around 11.30am to arrive at Nolan's Hutt for lunch (approx 1 hour). At Nolan's Hutt there are deck chairs and picnic rugs available for you to use so you can relax and enjoy the 360 degree views while having lunch.
You will head of in a North-West direction from the campsite up onto the Ridge where you will enjoy spectacular views of Mt Egmont and Mt Ruapehu.
You then head downhill across the creek where you will meander across rolling farmland where you will see plenty of sheep & cattle along the way. As you climb back up onto the Ridge you will come across Nolan's Hutt, your lunch spot. At approx 500m you will enjoy 360 degree views of Kapiti Island, Mt Egmont, Mt Ruapehu and the Ruahine Ranges.
After lunch you will continue along the Ridge enjoying the spectacular farmland and mountain views before coming back down onto the road, along the grass airstrip (used for top dressing) and back to the campsite. Once there, you can enjoy a beverage with your family and friends, soak in the outdoor baths and wait for your 2 course evening meal to be delivered once again. Breakfast provisions for the next day will be delivered along with a short briefing and map for the Day 2 walk.
Day 2 (Farmland Loop - 5km)
The second day will take you approx 1 1/2 hour and we recommend you begin the walk so you have enough time to complete it and check-out before 12pm. Your packed lunch will be waiting for you back at the campsite to take with you as you make your way home.
The walk starts in the South East direction with rolling hills where you will come across views of the Ruahine Ranges, Feilding, Palmerston North City and the Manawatu Windmills in the far distance. It then drops back down along the rejuvenating wetland which you will meander along and over before arriving back at the campsite.
Once back at the Campsite your packed lunch awaits you before you make your way home.
Departure - by 12pm
