Walks, Trails and Cycleways

No matter what your fitness level, New Zealand has walks for anyone and everyone! Your Stray driver-guide will be able to advise you on your options and help you make any arrangements as necessary.

Blue Pools Walk

Short Walks

There are plenty of opportunities for walking on our New Zealand travel network. This includes the Blue Pools (above), Mt Karioi, Tokaanu geothermal walk, Taranaki Falls, the Truman Track, Waitomo Valley Caves walk... and heaps more!


Abel Tasman Walk

Multi-Day Walks

Nine destinations have been designated as ‘Great Walks’ by the NZ Department of Conservation:

  • Lake Waikaremoana
  • Tongariro Northern Circuit
  • Whanganui Journey
  • Abel Tasman Track (pictured above)
  • Heaphy Track
  • Routeburn Track
  • Milford Track
  • Kepler Track
  • Rakiura Track

The summer months of December to April are the best time to hike NZ tracks as during the winter months weather conditions can limit access.
