Day Walks in New Zealand is part of the innovative and best-selling Bird's Eye Guide series. Using cutting-edge computer-generated maps, this book provides accurate 3D overviews of 100 of New Zealand's best short walks.
New Zealand has an unparalleled selection of superb day walks, ranging from the easiest short strolls, to more strenuous, full day tramps that encompass all of New Zealand's extraordinary landscape diversity. Accordingly, the walks in this book include trips of all kinds, from coastal walks at Cape Reinga to the beaches of Abel Tasman National Park, trips in all types of native forest, from the magnificent podocarp forests of the central North Island to the rainforests of South Westland, historic walks on the Coromandel and the goldfields of Central Otago, and the spectacular alpine tracks around Tongariro and Aoraki/Mount Cook national parks.
Each day walk is illustrated with a Bird's Eye map, which is a superb way of seeing a walk in three dimensions, and is supported with relevant route information and photographs by Shaun Barnett, one of New Zealand's most respected tramping authors. If you were to have a single book on day walks in New Zealand, this is the one to have.
