New Zealand

This section is purely dedicated to all of the hiking in New Zealand I’ve done including several multi-day hikes based on Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit (yes, very nerdy, I know!).

Aside from our New Zealand hiking tours, this page is very much dedicated to all the hikes I’ve ever done in New Zealand.

There are some you will be familiar with, whilst others, in true form for The Hiking Society, you may not be aware of. This is what we want to do – show you the different places that you can go hiking in New Zealand outside of the Great Walks.

So, let’s get into the nitty gritty of where myself, Matt and Keith will be heading to when we hike just over 270kms in New Zealand at the end of the year. As mentioned previously on Facebook, this trip is very much the sequel to our previous NZ trip and is inspired by The Hobbit. But,...
