Nelson/Marlborough Foothills and Coastal Regions: A Walking and Tramping Guide

Nelson and Marlborough, two large provinces in the north and northeast of the South Island, encompass within their boundaries three national parks, three large forest parks, a maritime park and a raft of smaller reserves and shorter tracks. Together these national treasures present a wonderful array of outdoor opportunities. Coastal walks dominate the region, a region enhanced by high sunshine hours and moderate climate. While there are areas of difficult terrain in the interior of the parks for seasoned trampers, most of the region boasts some of the best and most accessible tramping tracks in the country. From the fringes of the Kahurangi National Park and its iconic Heaphy Track to the sun drenched beaches of Abel Tasman to the waterways and trails of Marlborough Sounds to the high rugged peaks of Kaikoura, adventurers and day trippers are blessed with outstanding natural landscapes to enjoy and explore. This book draws together many of the most notable or accessible tracks, huts and tramping routes of the Nelson Marlborough region. Each walk outlines the walking time, and includes a grade for the walk (Easy to Hard+), standard access information, details for the best route, attractions to watch out for, notes on the weather, terrain and necessary equipment required, a brief overview of the geography, history and vegetation. The book is illustrated throughout with maps and the author's stunning colour photographs. An indispensable guide book to the Nelson / Marlborough region.
