NEW ZEALAND TRACKS

North & South Islands

2001

A selection of the major tracks and walks we did during a trip to New Zealand from mid-Dec 2000 to mid-April 2001. We started and finished in Auckland and bought a cheap car on a buy back scheme to get us round both Islands. The list is in the order that we did them, apart from the canoe trip, which we did first. Click on any picture to get an enlarged version. We enjoyed the trip so much we returned in 2002 to do a few more tramps - click here to access this trip.
