All Black legend Ian Jones is inviting Kiwis to join him in a guided walk through spectacular native bush, along pristine waterways and over the stunning west coast.

Inspired by his tamariki who are fluent in te reo Māori, Ian Jones says he seeks a renewed sense of belonging and is looking forward to hearing the history and the stories of the whenua and its people that accompany this guided walk.

“I have a genuine desire to start my journey of reconnection and better understand where I’m from,” says Jones.

“We’ll have an opportunity to explore our connection to New Zealand together, in an environment that is unique to Aotearoa – and couldn’t be more beautiful.”
