Wellington Walks: Otari-Wilton’s Bush and Skyline Walkway

Wellington Walks: Otari-Wilton’s Bush and Skyline Walkway. The only public botanic garden in New Zealand dedicated solely to native plants, home to an 800 year old rimu tree and bursting at the seams with birdlife. It was a crisp and cold Sunday afternoon as I crossed the canopy walk, perched...

Cycling the South Island of New Zealand

Cycling the South Island of New Zealand. The plan was to cycle for 14 days and over 800 kilometres through New Zealand’s South Island. I was feeling a little intimidated. I AM FAR from an expert cyclist. I have a Giant hybrid that I use for commuting. But with two weeks until the Christmas holidays...

Wellington Walks: Te Kopahou Reserve Tip Track

Wellington Walks: Te Kopahou Reserve Tip Track. I recently discovered the Tip Track within Te Kopahou Reserve after a friend recommend it, and what a walk! Te Kopahou, meaning “bent or folded feather” in Te Reo Maori covers an area of over 650 hectares and offers views of the highest calibre...

There’s nothing quite like the reward of a waterfall – the 300ft Hanakapiai Falls on the Kalalau Trail on the island of Kauai in Hawaii are definitely a reward of the highest calibre. It’s an 8 mile walk, 4 miles to the falls, returning via the same route. Please follow...

Wellington Walks: Paekakariki to Pukerua Bay Trail, Kapiti Coast

The Paekakariki Escarpment section of the Te Araroa trail runs between Paekakariki and Pukerua Bay. It has recently opened and my partner and I took the opportunity of a sunny, albeit blustery, Wellington day, to explore the 10 km trail, which climbs to over 200 metres above the Tasman Sea. We have passed through the scenic Kapiti Coast numerous times on the way to another destination, but frequently think to...

Hi, I am Adam Constanza from Wellington, New Zealand and I share my outdoor adventures through Travel Inspired.


I'll often be out tramping in the wilderness of New Zealand - particularly those walks around my hometown of Wellington. Whether it's a short hike or a challenging multi-day walk, there's no better feeling than being out there! As well as hiking, I love active adventures and activities including cycling, running and travelling New Zealand and beyond.
