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


All bookings for the 2019/2020 Great Walks season will open mid-June 2019.

Check back early June for specific walk opening dates.

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.
