In many ways, hiking in New Zealand defies a single definition. You can expect to find everything from sandy beaches to barren volcanic vistas on day hikes and multiday adventures. From Kura Tawhiti’s limestone monoliths to shimmering Lake Wanaka. Your next vacation will be a big one after these nine days in New Zealand. Kaua’i is home to many landscapes that are breathtakingly beautiful in their own ways.

The walk begins in the alpine tussock fields with mountain views, then descends through magnificent beech forest and under towering limestone bluffs, on a well-formed track. Fiordland is a place where the weather and altitude can have a dramatic effect on the vegetation and trees. This hike ends at Brod Bay, where you can pick up the water taxi that will take you back to Te Anau. The hallmark of our hiking tours is embracing challenging terrain; however, we do offer tours for a range of abilities. Our moderate tours average 6-7 miles per day, energetic tours average 8-12 miles a day, and the most challenging tours include at least one day of high mileage and strenuous terrain.

Robinson from South Africa describes the scenery “is breathtaking, along the way we saw a Roe deer and an otter”. I loved not having to think about the details of dining/accommodations/transport. It was a wonderful experience and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys walking in the natural world.
