New Zealand is a wilderness paradise of incredibly beautiful landscapes. From its turquoise waters and sandy beaches, fern-clad hillsides give way to lush forests, deep gorges, alpine lakes and snow-capped peaks. Outstanding scenery, a rich heritage and extensive outdoor activities combine to make New Zealand one of the world's most exciting destinations. There is no better way to experience it than on one of the nine designated Great Walks, the country's premier walking tracks. Meticulously waymarked and maintained, the Great Walks provide outstanding tramping opportunities for people at all levels of fitness and proficiency.
Inside this guide you will find:
Practical information for all budgets - Planning your trip and getting to New Zealand; getting to each trailhead; health and safety; environmentally-sensitive tramping; flora and fauna; historical and cultural background.
50 trail maps - walking times, directions, places to stay and points of interest. These are not general-purpose maps but fully-edited maps drawn specifically for trail users.
Auckland, Wellington and gateway towns - detailed guides and maps to Auckland, Wellington, National Park Village, Taumaranui, Nelson, Queenstown, Te Anau and Oban.
