New Zealand and Trekking, Hiking and Walking Holidays


New Zealand Trek

1.) New Zealand Contrasts

Our popular day walking tour spends time in seven wildly contrasting National Parks in New Zealand's stunning South Island including Abel Tasman coast, West Coast rainforest and glaciers, Fiordland and Milford Sound (Milford Track option), Mt Cook and after a flight to Rotorua, Tongariro National Park.

This ambitious itinerary combines adventure, real walking, good food, and great places to stay, with 'High Places' (and New Zealand's) own informal and relaxed style.

  • Bush fringed bays and golden beaches of the Abel Tasman National Park
  • Beech forests and ridges at Nelson Lakes
  • Paparoa NP & Pancake rocks
  • Rainforest, glaciers and gorges of the West Coast
  • A high viewpoint in the Aspiring National Park
  • Fiordland mountains and Milford Sound
  • Alpine ridges around Mount Cook
  • Volcanoes, crater lakes and hot springs in Tongariro National Park
  • An overnight sail in Milford Sound is a highlight.

PLUS an option to leave us for 4 days to walk the world famous Milford Track (but book early).

The trip ends in Auckland but if you are short of time you can save North Island for next time and end the trip in Christchurch after Mount Cook.

"You are thoroughly professional and clearly care a lot about getting it right, and you employ great guides – which reflects well on you. Your local knowledge enabled us to do things we could not have organised ourselves. Most importantly, we enjoyed your company – and you seemed to enjoy ours.
