As a follow-up to his North Island volume, inveterate tramper Peter Janssen presents more than 250 short walks in the South Island and Stewart Island that are ideal for those people who like to stretch their legs without having to tackle a full tramp. Among others, this includes parents with young families or visitors who have come to New Zealand without full walking kit.
All of the walks include a memorable highlight, whether it’s a spectacular landscape feature, an historic site or just a great view. The walks 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 walkers.
Each walk includes: • highlight(s) • how to get there • grade • time …and full track notes. Maps are included, and a short introduction gives information on bush safety, practical considerations and information on how to use the book.
