So we did it. We hiked the length of New Zealand. We left Cape Reinga
on September 22, 2007 and had five amazing months walking 3012 kilometers
of beaches, mountains, farm land, and crossing rivers. We spent as much
time on trails as possible, using roads only when there was no other
We arrived at Bluff on February 7th, 2008 and then spent two weeks hiking
the circuit tracks of Stewart Island. We had an unforgettable trip with
more highlights than we’ll bother to bore you with on this page.
We are keeping this website going to help others who are planning on
doing all, or part of this hike. We have added a detailed route description
to the progress page with every trail and road we walked along. If anyone
wants any advice, feel free to e-mail us.
Project K continues their fantastic youth development programme around
New Zealand. Read about them on the cause page. The secure online donation
link is being kept open for when you’re feeling generous.
If you are dedicated NZUnderfoot fans, you can see more of us at the
New Zealand Mountain Film Festival in Wakaka this July where we will
be speaking about our adventure. Enjoy the site, and get outdoors.
