Hiking Tours of the South Island and North Island
Hiking, trekking, tramping or walking, call it what you will, but you still have to get there under your own steam. No fangle-dangle contraptions and paraphernalia on these tours, just a good pair of walking shoes or boots.
The world was once only traversed by foot and many of the exciting trails used then are still hiked today. On our New Zealand hiking tours our luggage is carried for us and all we need is a day pack and desire to see what is around the next corner. Our guide makes sure we stay on track and arrive safe and sound at each evenings destination.Book Now Ask a Question
