Cycleways and walkways

Council provides footpaths and cycleways to allow people to enjoy our natural environment and provide areas for exercise to improve wellbeing and overall quality of life. Council works to ensure footpaths and cycleways are safe to use and that their form and function are appropriate for their use.


The Kaikōura Tramping club runs a regular programme of walks and activities. Visit their website 

Information about short walks and tracks can also be found at the local I-site or via their website 


With a variety of scenic rides that suit a range of skill levels, there is something for everyone; including seaside, native bush, country road tracks and mountain tracks.

Kaikōura Cycling Club: An incorporated club formed 2011 by a group of like-minded volunteers to promote cycling and improving cycling facilities in the Kaikōura district. Their vision is to develop a world class cycle and walking trail network that encompasses the ocean and the mountains of Kaikōura.
