A country known for its stunning mountain and coastal landscapes, New Zealand draws thousands of outdoor enthusiasts annually. Hikers in particular flock to the country for its nine Great Walks. These well-maintained trails offer access to some of New Zealand’s most scenic backcountry areas, including the volcanic wasteland found on the Tongariro Northern Circuit and the lush waterfall-filled landscapes on the Milford Track.
Perhaps the most unique Great Walk, though, is the Whanganui Journey, a 145-kilometer water trail on the North Island. Most adventurers spend five days canoeing from Taumarunui to Pipiriki, staying in campsites and huts located along the trek. The Whanganui River holds cultural significance to the native Maori people and winds through pristine, remote landscapes not accessible by any other means. For more information on this and New Zealand’s other Great Walks, you can visit the Department of Conservation’s website at www.doc.govt.nz.
