Te Araroa. Pelorus river track Day 7-8

46 kilometers. It is recommended to walk this section 3-4 days but my friend and I did it in an easy 2 days. More information about this track can found here:

I loved this section! This track followed the emerald waters of the Pelorus river and provided a stunning setting for afternoon swimming on a hot day. The greenest water I have ever seen. We lucked out here and had perfect weather.
