Hiking in New Zealand
New Zealand, once considered as the bottom of the world has over recent decades been discovered as more than just the stunning natural set of islands known for farming, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, big mountains, glaciers, blue lakes, one way bridges, and the global adventure and adrenalin hub of Queenstown. Once you’ve ticked off the jet boating, bungy jumping, rafting, and mountain biking, it’s time to head towards Fiordland and discover the true, natural spirit of New Zealand, on foot.
Spotted around the southern alps of New Zealand and across and throughout the Mount Aspiring and the Fiordland National Parks are some spectacular alpine passes and hiking trails offering up day and multi day hikes taking in alps, glaciers, rivers, lakes, fiords, forest and alpine tundra, and always serving up breathtaking views around every corner and over every peak.
