Adventures with Emilie

Kia ora! I’m Victoria and I’m walking Te Araroa with my seven-year-old daughter Emilie.

We’re the first solo Mummy/daughter duo to walk the length of New Zealand, proving that girls can do anything, and we’d love to share our adventure with you.

I’m walking the trail as part of a project to restore my wellbeing and reconnect with nature, meet some amazing people and make wonderful memories with Emilie.
