Hiking in New Zealand really is a treat. Most everyone you meet is just out to enjoy the day and see as many sights as they can. The government has done a great job at supporting this culture and almost all tracks are well marked and in amazing shape. The low population on the South Island means that you may only pass a few other people on a whole day of hiking to a truly stunning place, another bonus if you are seeking solitude!
