The 10 Great Walks of New Zealand are the Department of Conservation's (DOC) most popular multi-day walks.

All of the 10 Great Walks provide unparalleled access to some of the country’s most incredible natural landscapes, wildlife and cultural heritage. They traverse national parks and other culturally significant protected areas which are home to some of New Zealand’s most endangered taonga (treasures). 

Ensure you research which Great Walk is most suitable for your fitness level. It is essential that you know which skills and equipment are required, expected track and weather conditions, and how to limit your impact outdoors.
