GEAR HIRE – HIKE HAPPY & PACK LIGHT

The key to a safe and unforgettable Great Walk experience is having the right gear and a lighter pack. The weather in New Zealand’s Alpine environment can be unpredictable, so you need to be prepared for all situations. 

Our small team of born-and-bred kiwis have grown up in the outdoors (including the youngest and he’s only 3!), so we’ve handpicked hire gear we know works, and that will enhance your Great Walk. Tried and tested, all of our gear is quality, lightweight, warm and practical, so you have the best outdoor experience possible.

Best of all, we’ll deliver your gear before your hike saving you the hassle of lugging yours from home all for just a small part of your holiday.

What are people saying?

  • I was a little leery about using rented equipment. What Easyhike provided was very high quality. No different than what I would have brought for myself. The packs were great.
  • We travelled from California to do the hike - and could not possibly have been able to manage it as easily, if at all, without the amazing services offered by Bobbie and her team at Easyhike. They reduced the logistics of the trip to virtually zero for us: Delivering rucksacks with absolutely everything we'd need or want, from rain gear and sleeping bags to food and first aid kits, right to our hotel the day before the hike. They also arranged to move our car from the start to the finish, so it was awaiting us when we got there. Literally all we had to do was dress and show up. The whole adventure was amazing - and if you have even an inkling that this might be something you'd enjoy, then DON'T HESITATE!! It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience...
