Practical Information: 

  • With our reputation as being clean and green, of course there are a seeming unlimited number of hiking options, through subtropical rainforest, glaciers, parks, forest, and so much more.
  • There are nine “Great Walks” in New Zealand, offering Department of Conservation shared cabins and requiring reservations.
  • Total walking enthusiasts can now walk Te Araroa – a 3,000km New Zealand trail that runs from Cape Reinga at the northern tip to Bluff at the bottom of the South Island.

    I love hiking, love, love, love it. LOL Doesn’t matter where, just to be out in the world, the sunshine, the forests, the mountains. Such peace and so beautiful. Nothing better, nothing! LOL

    I enjoy hiking in a range of locations, from rainforests, mountains, gorges to coastlines. We did a lot of hikes on our trip around Australia into wilderness areas which was extremely enjoyable. One day I would like to do the 3 Cape Walk on the Tasman Peninsula of Tasmania.

    Hiking is one of my favourite pastimes but I didn’t do as much as I would have liked to in New Zealand. My husband hates to walk (let alone hike) and my best hiking partner was my dog. With all of the DOC restrictions, the great tramps were out of the question but we managed to find a few good trails here and there . . . they looked a lot like your photo!

    I do love a good hike! We’ve enjoyed trails around our home on the north coast of NSW – from the mountains to the sea, as well as several of the Cinque Terre trails in Italy. I have yet to hike in New Zealand, but now I know more about it, thanks to you Rhonda! I think it might take me a while to work up to Te Araroa though :-).

    It looks lovely! I love hiking. I don’t think I’ll ever get to New Zealand, but it looks really nice.
