Hike to a Backcountry Hut

No hotel or resort compares to the location of some New Zealand backcountry huts. While I recommend iconic huts like Mueller Hut, Angelus Hut, and Brewster Hut for the views and hiking, the huts on less frequented backpacking routes offered friendships and conversation that made an even greater impression.

THE APPEAL:

  • Experience the new zealand way of backpacking with the luxuries of a warm shelter, cooking areas, bunk beds, and less gear to carry (great for beginner backpackers).

  • socializing with other travellers and locals.

LOCATION: (the 3 must do huts)
