SCENIC WALKS

Welcome to a walker’s paradise, where a seemingly endless network of trails wind
through some of the best landscapes thiscountry has to offer – from isolated beaches and rugged coastlines, through farmland,wetlands, river valleys and towering forest, to tussock-cloaked high country and dramatic
mountain ranges. New Zealand’s Great Walks, Day Hikes, Short
Walks, Manaaki Trails and other tracks take you there. Many follow historic byways and pass iconic natural wonders, or offer encounters with unique wildlife such as kiwi, penguins and fur seals. An enviable hut network, peaceful nature campsites and atmospheric lodges make for truly memorable overnight stops.
The diversity of tracks across New Zealand’s national parks and reserves means there is something for everyone, from leisurely nature trails that bring unique ecosystems into focus, to challenging multi-day adventures in remote, untouched wilderness. Although most walks explore our natural world, they are surprisingly easy to reach. Towns and villages are seldom far away, offering a wealth of visitor information and services. Passionate local tour operators run guided trips with great food and comfortable lodging, making it possible to visit places you only ever dreamed of.
