Excellent Short Walks in the North Island
|Format||Paperback / softback|
|Book Size||210 x 148 mm|
|Imprint||New Holland Publishers|
Peter Janssen introduces more than 250 North Island short walks with a difference. They are grouped by region, and each can be accomplished within the span of a couple of hours (and some much less), putting them well within the grasp of most people. What’s more, all of them have a memorable highlight as their destination, whether it’s a spectacular feature of the natural landscape, an historic site or similar landmark, giving readers motivation to stretch their legs.
The book is ideal for those walkers who are not at their peak level or fitness, those with children or – like many visitors to New Zealand – those who do not have full tramping kit to hand. Each walk includes: • highlight(s) • how to get there • grade • time …and full track notes. A short introduction gives information on bush safety, practical considerations and information on how to use the book.
