This 10 km family-friendly track is the most popular walk in the Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park and offers amazing views of New Zealand's highest mountain, Aoraki/Mount Cook.

Mount Fox

The Coromandel Coastal Walkway and Cycle Path is a 10km easy grade route that offers stunning views of the peninsula’s rocky cliffs and azure blue bays – a definite must do.

We’re Martin & Debs and this is our New Zealand adventure travel guide. We live in Auckland and while for the most part we lead fairly regular 9 to 5 lives, we’re forever dreaming and planning our next trip as we explore this amazing country we now call home.

Whether it’s walking and hiking, scuba diving, mountain biking, paddling along New Zealand’s seemingly endless coastline or white water sledging through narrow gorges, our mission is to experience the best outdoor and adventure activities that New Zealand has to offer. We have a to-do list (a long one!), and over the coming months or however long it takes, we aim to complete it.

So whether you’re a kiwi local or an overseas adventure traveller planning the ultimate New Zealand holiday, or simply dreaming of your next backpacking gap adventures, we hope you find some inspiration for your own travels in the words and photos we share on our journey through Aotearoa, the land of the long white cloud.
