Start in Auckland and end in Christchurch, the trip "Trekking In New Zealand " is a guided explorer tour that takes 19 days. You will travel through Te Anau, Makarora, Auckland and 12 other destinations in New Zealand. "Trekking In New Zealand " is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

New Zealand epitomises contrasting scenery and culture and is an ideal country for adventure travel. Explore both islands as you weave your way through New Zealand on this active trip, visiting all the main highlights and many off-the-beaten-track attractions. Maximise your time in out of the way places and yet still marvel at the iconic destinations. Enjoy true wilderness campsites followed by comfortable lodges. Trek through Jurassic-like rainforest, hike along a glacier, climb up volcanic peaks and enjoy fish and chips on the beach. It is this mix which makes New Zealand extraordinary - it is majestic but down to earth, otherworldly yet reassuringly familiar. A range of activities and glacier walking (optional extra) complement the hikes superbly and keep this tour as diverse and exciting as the landscapes travelled!
