What you'll do
I invite you for a walkway walk in one of the most beautiful Auckland suburbs, where we'll see how nature oases and ocean beaches organically blend with excellent infrastructure of houses, schools, eateries, sport grounds and other conveniences. Our base plan is: - stroll along beautiful North Shore beaches - exclaim multiple times "ah!" at Hauraki Gulf sea sceneries - explore NZ's hidden native bush patches - observe varying architecture of typical Kiwi dwellings - stop for swim or wharf jump (conditional) - talk a lot about NZ, your country and travels in general - try to adjust/enhance your plans for your next steps in NZ - finish with coffee/food/beer at one of the iconic local eateries and, importantly, - get a flavour of seeing the country as the locals do "Walkway" in Auckland is something pretty specific for New Zealand only and could be anything from just a shortcut from one street to another to an easy track through a delightful nature reserve. In our view your understanding of the NZ lifestyle is not complete if you did not walk NZ’s urban walkways. WaW@NS is pretty similar to our airbnb.co.nz/experiences/254299 tour with a bit more stress on the "town" part.
I live on the North Shore since 2000. When I am not busy at a software developer’s desk, I spend a good part of my spare time running, cycling, kayaking, skiing, paragliding etc. Remarkably I can do most of these activities within just 3km of my home. When we host friends from overseas, I take them on my favourite local routes to show the delightful surroundings of the North Shore - and this is what they later recall as their best NZ lifestyle insight!

80% of our carefully crafted route will go through "secret" walkways in the Browns Bay - Murrays Bay area. We'll walk from 3 to 9 km depending on group fitness, weather and frequency of photo-stops on the way.
