Take a walk, a Great Walk, through some of New Zealand’s most awe-inspiring landscapes on premier walking tracks.


New Zealand's Great Walks are premier tracks that pass through diverse and spectacular scenery. From native forests, lakes and rivers to rugged mountain peaks, deep gorges and vast valleys...there's a Great Walk for everyone!

Great Walks tracks are well formed and easy to follow. While most people prefer to explore on their own terms, guided trips offer a bit more comfort. Great Walks are accessible from major towns that are well serviced by local operators and accommodation and transport providers.

Demand for Great Walks is high this summer. But there are still lots of options available (even some over the school holidays) if you are flexible with which walk you do, when you go or are willing to camp.
