Description

This tramp follows a ridge line from Gebbies Pass on the Lyttelton crater to the Hilltop Tavern on the Akaroa crater, over Mt Herbert – the highest point on the peninsula at 919m. It’s a reasonably easy two day track that can also be done in three.

The Packhorse and Rod Donald huts offer comfortable accommodation.
