Based in Auckland, New Zealand, the North Shore Tramping Club is a friendly club offering a wide range of trips, mostly in the northern half of the North Island.
We run tramps every weekend, either on Sunday, or for the weekend.
We welcome and encourage individuals and family groups, and you don't need to be a member to tramp with us.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long are the tramps? Sunday tramps range from 4 to 6 hours' walking time. Depending on numbers, we will have parties covering shorter, medium and longer distances.
Where do you go? Sunday tramps are usually in the Waitakeres and Hunua ranges, north as far as the Kaipara Harbour and Mangawhai, the northern Waikato, or the islands of the Hauraki Gulf. We also run weekend and longer trips around New Zealand. You can see the full list of scheduled tramps here, and reports on past tramps here.
How can I join a tramp? If you're not a member, please phone the organiser. They will confirm whether the tramp will be suitable for your level of fitness and experience, advise you on clothing and gear, and answer any questions you have.
How do I get to the tramp? For Sunday tramps, we meet at The Strand in Takapuna. Please be there 15 minutes before departure time. Meeting times and places can vary for weekend trips, but you will find specific information alongside each trip description in Upcoming Tramps here. See here for maps of meeting locations. We have a purpose-built outdoor activities vehicle for transport to and from the tramps.
