Te Araroa Speaking Tour: Coming to Your Local REI!

Event Series: Thru-Hiking Te Araroa in New Zealand | CloudLine Apparel

CloudLine ambassadors Justin and Patrice Lavigne live a life less ordinary. They are constantly doing what they love and that involves adventures like thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2011, living in their van for months at a time, spending the summer guiding kids on outdoor adventures at summer camps, writing for Backpacker's Magazine, and in 2015 they thru-hiked New Zealand's long trail, Te Araroa. 

Beginning May 1st, 2017 the Lavigne's will be hitting the road in their camper van to speak about their thru-hike of Te Araroa at 31 events across the country. 

 

What is Te Araroa?

Event Series: Thru-Hiking Te Araroa in New Zealand | CloudLine Apparel

Te Araroa is New Zealand's longest trail, spanning 1850 miles. It was officially completed in 2011 so it relatively new, but growing in popularity, thanks to New Zealand's beautiful scenery, people, and weather.  

More Info: visit the Official Te Araroa home page for more info about the trail.

Wilderness Connects Everyone
Wilderness Connects Everyone

by Erin Gautier April 28, 2019

In the past, hiking and being outdoors with people of other backgrounds, cultures, languages, and countries has been an incredible experience.

While I enjoy these things as much as anyone, they do not alone account for the extraordinary connection and leveling effect of nature on all people.
