The simple act of putting one foot in front of the other is the best way to appreciate New Zealand’s pristine outdoor environments.
By spending time on tracks and trails, you can use all your senses to absorb the extraordinary beauty of national parks, conservation areas, coastal zones and forest reserves.
Often you’ll be faced with a number of choices. Do you want to walk for 30 minutes, three hours or three days? Our national parks have vast networks of tracks that make it easy to find a walking experience that matches your fitness level and the time you have available.
Or maybe you’re coming to New Zealand with a particular walking adventure in mind - like the Milford Track in Fiordland or the volcanic Tongariro Crossing in the North Island. Take your pick from a multitude of intrepid on-foot adventures, including nine Great Walks, that will entice you to journey far beyond the reach of civilisation.
