Hike the trails within Poronui or step out on more challenging hikes through the neighbouring forest park and Mohaka River Valley.  New Zealand is well known for its impressive mountain scenery and what better way to experience some of the most spectacular land forms in the country than heli-hiking.  The use of helicopter provides access to country that would otherwise be beyond the range of a day hike.  It also adds its own special excitement to the trip.  There is nothing like the thrill of the helicopter ride followed by the overwhelming peace and solitude when you are left in your own wilderness.


Heli-hiking at Poronui will transport you to truly remote areas of the Central North Island where you and your guide can enjoy the magic of the high-country. An incredible range of scenery and terrain is available. All heli-hiking excursions are fully guided by one of our staff. Their knowledge and experience ensures you get the most from your day without the worry of timetables and safety considerations.
