Where nature is unmatched.
After moving to New Zealand for 6 months, I have hiked, explored, and driven what seems like every scenic backroad and trail, taken (almost) every pull out, and have put a serious dent in my checklist (that managed to never stop growing).
I’m asked constantly for what the must-do hikes are so I have put together the 25+ best hikes (ordered by my favorites)- a mix of day hikes and backpacking trails, ‘Great Walks’ and off-the-beaten-path trails that are sure get you inspired!
Focused on the South Island, this itinerary has New Zealand’s top hikes, photography spots, and authentic experiences built into a 10-day itinerary with 20+ additional add-ons to customize the itinerary to you for your best trip.
