New Zealand - walking paradise this is why we went there. Sure, you can do loads of other things when being there. Crazy stuff in Queenstown, whale watching at the coast, getting sun baked at the beach.

the famous Milford Track.

This page is, as all the others, by no means to meant to replace an up-to-date guidebook, see references below. The following remarks only serve as additional information:

Apart from hiking, New Zealand also offers a great deal of culture. The following Maori relicts have been photographes in Waitangi National reserve (north island); the more recent, but in less well condition, equipment in Port Craig village (south island).
