Two of NZ’s best hikes

It’s nearly time for bookings for NZ’s awesome Great Walks to open for the 2016/17 trekking season. Here’s two of the best to get you psyched to push that “Booked” button!


Discover Du Cane Range, Tasmania

Beyond the manicured Overland Track, in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, the rugged Du Cane Range sprawls bereft of tracks, devoid of humans and full of mysticism.


Adventure: Teton Crest Trail

One of North America’s best treks, the Teton Crest Trail is a gruelling series of switchbacks through Wyoming’s alpine wilderness, where the biggest hazard is neither bears nor moose, but fatigue.


Wonder Wall

Jinshanling is a great base for exploring China’s Great Wall. No crowds, only epic contrasts. Trek one way to see beautifully restored watchtowers, the other to explore an ancient, overgrown monument in the wilderness.


Destination: Lofoten, Norway

Despite the constant daylight in the land of the midnight sun, the weather can be fickle, almost vindictive, but the effort to get here is rewarded with the magnificent grandeur of a spectacular landscape.


A very long pathway

It is one of the world’s famous long distance walks. Te Araroa offers everything that is spectacular about New Zealand walking along its 3068km – as one young Aussie finds out.
