The rail carts have waterproof containers on the back of each cart that are ideal for holding personal day bags and extra clothing.
Allergy medications and insect repellent
- Being a rural environment there are insects around. If you require any allergy medications please ensure you have them with you and bring sufficient protection.
As the weather can be changeable and tunnels cool year round, we recommend you bring warm layers and/ or a windproof light jacket.
Between the start of our season in October and early December or if you are travelling toward the end of our season in April or May, we suggest you bring a warm jacket, hat and gloves.
Rainproof coat if rain is forecast
- The carts have waterproof plastic sides that ensure that the inside of the carts remain relatively dry, but waterproof gear can be useful on a really wet day.
Good comfortable walking shoes are best. Robust sandals are fine but, please no jandals (flip flops/ thongs) or heels.
- All our experiences include some kind of healthy snack/homebaking or meal and water. If you prefer to snack on something in between stops, you are welcome to pack a few extra snacks of your own for the ride.
- Sustainability and being environmentally conscious is a priority at Forgotten World Adventures and we have placed bins at the various stops for the disposal of all empty bottles and food wrappers. What we take into the Forgotten World, we bring out.
You can refill your bottle at our meal stops.
The New Zealand sun can be harsh on a summer's day. Don't forget your sunscreen.
There are so many stunning Forgotten World landscapes - don't forget your trusted camera with an extra battery or power pack if required.
Guests can purchase gifts and souvenirs from 'The Shed' at Tokirima and from our motel reception/Forgotten World Adventures base so please bring means of payment if you're interested in taking souvenirs home with you. You may encounter artisan producers selling homemade produce at a designated stop along the line - these will be cash only.
