The valleys and mountains of Otago and South Westland have some of New Zealand’s greatest and most popular walks – as well as some of the country’s most spectacular and inaccessible terrain. Moir’s Guide North provides accurate and easy to use information about all the well-used tramping routes in the region as well as many little known and remote areas.

The Greenstone, Routeburn, Rees–Dart, Wilkin and Young–Siberia valleys are all described in detail.

Since 1925, when Dr George Moir wrote the first guidebook to the region, Moir’s Guide has been the most comprehensive and up-to-date guide to south-west New Zealand. That reputation is sustained with the eighth edition, thoroughly revised and updated by Geoff Spearpoint and Danilo Hegg. Between them they have visited almost every valley and mountain range in the book and share a long-time love for the region and its plants and wildlife. Geoff is a life member of the New Zealand Alpine Club, and both are superb photographers, whose work features extensively in Moir’s.

They have been helped immeasurably by members of the outdoor community and DOC staff contributing their knowledge.

Moir’s Guide North is published by the New Zealand Alpine Club, the country’s leading publisher of climbing and mountaineering guidebooks.
