The Department of Conservation has designated nine New Zealand Great Walks that are spread throughout the country, each showcasing a different set of iconic New Zealand landscapes, flora and fauna. New Zealand's National Parks are spread from one end of our diverse country to the other. And while some more famous hikes get a lot of interest and attract larger numbers of walkers, others like the Lake Waikaremoana guided walk are absolute gems that get you away from the crowds & into the pristine New Zealand back country. With literally hundreds of options there really is something for everybody and every level of fitness.

 

The Milford Track is the most iconic of New Zealand walks and rated amongst the top ten in the world.

 

Explore the volcanic heart of Tongariro National Park, a landscape of stark volcanic contrasts and alpine views.

 

The Abel Tasman is a place where beech forests give way to golden sands; seals play in warm crystal-clear waters and no one seems to have a care in the world.

 

Highlights include the beech-forested shores of lakes Te Anau, the tussock carpeted alpine tops and grandeur of Mt Luxmore and panoramic views of rivers, lakes and hanging valleys on one side and the
the Kepler Mountain range

 

This unique Great Walk is a hut–to–hut hiking expedition, circumnavigating beautiful Lake Waikaremoana, with secluded beaches, a fascinating history and truly breathtaking views.

 

The walk of a life-time! Combining the best of Mt Aspiring National Park and Fiordland National Park this is as close to nature as it gets. 

 

Travel through expansive tussock downs, lush forests and nīkau palms to the roaring seas of the West Coast.

 

Explore the scenic beauty paddling up the Whanganui River, a landscape of remote hills and bush clad valleys.

 

Escape on an island adventure - relax and unwind in the peaceful surroundings with the bush, birds and beach at your side.
