From the Publisher
Welcome to the South Island
Welcome to one of the world’s ultimate outdoor playgrounds, bursting with opportunities for adventure amid diverse and inspiring landscapes.
Hiking (known as ‘tramping’ here) may be the South Island’s classic adventure, but there are far racier ways to immerse yourself
in its landscapes. Raft down the tumbling Buller or Rangitata Rivers, or kayak around the coves of the Marlborough Sounds, Abel Tasman National Park or Fiordland. It’s all epic!
