Welcome to the Home page of The Over Forties Tramping Club.

We are a tramping club, based in Christchurch, New Zealand, for trampers over forty years old.

With over 400 members, our club caters for all levels of tramping abilities running day trips on Wednesdays and Sundays, as well as base camps and back packing trips. As long as you can attain a reasonable standard of fitness, you'll be fine. We are not competitive, with the emphasis being on safe, friendly and enjoyable tramping.

Please have a look through our website and if you're interested in getting further information or joining, contact our Membership Officer via
email (on the "Contacts" page), or write to The Secretary, OFTC, PO Box 6505, Upper Riccarton, Christchurch 8442
