Booking the Great Walks
We all know one of the ultimate reasons to visit New Zealand is for the jaw-dropping scenery. Luckily for you, our Department of Conservation has designated nine New Zealand Great Walks spread throughout the country, each showcasing a different set of iconic New Zealand landscapes, flora and fauna.
But be warned some of these hikes are often booked out a year in advance – especially during summer months and especially for the two most popular walks the Milford and Routeburn tracks.
So we recommend you book these hikes as soon as you know what your start day from Te Anau will be. For any of the remaining seven Great Walks, pre-booking is also recommended, especially if you are planning to walk during the summer months of December, January and February.
