Great Walks of NZ

Independent walking holidays through some of New Zealand's most spectacular landscapes.

Great Walks are the Department of Conservation’s (DOC) premier walking tracks passing through some of New Zealand’s most awe-inspiring landscapes.

DOC’s new independent walking packages are designed especially for visitors who want to spend less time planning and more time exploring!

Tour Highlights


Independent walkers are unguided and carry all their own gear. Great Walks are on well graded tracks and easy to follow but walkers will need a reasonable standard of fitness to carry their pack over the climbs and descents of the beautiful rugged landscapes to each night’s accommodation. Those kayaking or canoeing should be comfortable paddling for a few hours a day.

Terms & Conditions

• One night pre and post walk accommodation in comfortable 3 star accommodation

• Transport to and from the track

• Pre booked DOC Huts

• Trip Notes including contacts for gear hire

• Packages can be tailormade to suit your needs
