Night Forest Walk
Our most popular walk – an outstanding experience! Your senses come alive as the forest transitions from day to night – witness the changing of the guard as the nocturnal flora and fauna awaken. On twilight listen to the bird song as it changes from day calls to night calls, witness New Zealand Bats flying overhead feeding on insects, and the birds and insects of the night calling to their mate. Experiencing the New Zealand forest habitat and it’s creatures at night is delightful. A truly memorable experience as our guides bring the forest to life, where you may then finish under a canopy of brilliant stars….
Available October 1st to April 30th. Guided night tours on dusk.
REVIEW by the New Zealand Herald
If you fancy dreaming of big fat wetas, then take a guided night walk with Adventure Puketi.
We saw dozens of the infamous insects tucked up in sheltered spots on trees and rock walls in the Puketi Forest. The giant carnivorous snails (kauri snails) we encountered are also worthy of nightmares.
I’ve never considered taking a guided bush tour. But having an experienced guide like Ian Candy makes a lot of sense. I never realised, until Candy got his big spotlight out, that we had such large spiders in the New Zealand bush.
