Walking in New Zealand

There are many great walks in New Zealand, and tramping (the kiwi term for hiking) is a real treat – wide open spaces, cascading glaciers, and spectacular mountain ranges form a natural paradise for lovers of the great outdoors.

You’ll find a variety of walking opportunities, from relaxed strolls along coastal paths to more energetic treks into alpine environments, from a ‘ten minute stretch’ to a full day hike (or ‘tramp’ as it is locally known).

We include a wide selection of walks within our Independent Walking Holiday suggestions and also offer the opportunity to undertake one or more of the guided Great Walks of New Zealand. These are usually of three to six days duration, and are led by expert guides through outstanding scenery. They include comfortable accommodation, wholesome meals, and the opportunity to enjoy the experience of a lifetime.

We also offer a wide range of day walks which can be combined with many of our holidays. Do get in touch if you would like us to help you to put together a tailor made itinerary focusing on some of New Zealand’s best walking opportunities.
