Te Araroa Trail New Zealand

The idea of a walking trail the length of New Zealand has been around for over 25 years. The Federated Mountain Clubs proposed the concept in the mid-1970s, and development of a north-south route was a priority for the New Zealand Walkway Commission.

Mountain Safety
New Zealand Mountain Safety Council provides a number of outdoor safety publications on the New Zealand Outdoors. Exploring untouched bush or high peaks involves venturing deep into the wilderness, far from a base, for a number of days. Tramping, hiking and mountainneering offer a true sense of escapism, isolation and connection with the environment.

202 New Zealand Great Walks
202 Best Walks is a book with something for everyone: there are walks that suit families, and walks for those who want a real leg-stretcher. Times range from 1–2 hours to 5–6 hours, but all longer walks have shorter 1–2 hour turn-around options. Every walk has been thoroughly checked, with notes on track conditions, access, facilities and walking times, with the added bonus of a topographical map with each walk. 202 Best Walks is the companion volume to Mark Pickering’s best-selling 101 Great Tramps. A special feature of this book is the inclusion of many city walks that explore the scenically surprising corners of New Zealand’s urban areas.

Since the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring in cinemas worldwide, to millions of moviegoers and Tolkien fans the world over, New Zealand is now the embodiment of ‘Middle-earth’.

To assist the army of The Lord of the Rings fans to explore ‘Middle-earth’, The Lord of the Rings Location Guidebook is being published by HarperCollins Publishers (NZ) this November. This definitive guidebook to movie locations used in The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers offers a unique insight into the landscape that helped bring JRR Tolkien’s epic tale to life.

Arguably one of the world's greatest walks, the Milford Track is 52km of forests, wetlands, alpine herbfields, and crystal clear streams, all within a dramatically glaciated landscape. The Milford -Kiwi Footpaths Track Guide ensures you miss none of this outstanding walking experience, identifies points of interest often missed, provides a historical, geological, and biological context for the walker, and is a lasting reminder of your journey.
