The Bay of Islands Walking Weekend – 7th, 8th, 9th October 2016. 
Based in Russell, the walking weekend has 20 walks to choose from  – from a Cultural History tour around the Russell Village to an Island Ramble – heading out on the famous R. Tucker Thompson to Otehei Bay, there is something for everyone who loves to walk!
This is going to be a great week not only for the beauty of the bay but for the cultural and historic elements that are unique to this part of the world. To ensure you get the best out of the walks we have local guides to lead the way. These guides are all passionate and knowledgeable about the area and bring something extra to the walking experience. Each walk has no more than 20 people so get in quick to book.
The Bay of Islands Walking Weekend has its very own headquarters based in Russell at The Duke of Marlborough Tavern where people can meet, chat about their day and have something to eat and drink. There will also be entertainment and competitions throughout the weekend. All walks leave from the headquarters where you will get to meet you guide, fellow walkers and be provided with an overview of the walk.
Russell is a fantastic base for the weekend with lots of great restaurants, places to stay and for the non-walkers out there, plenty of things to do.
