New Zealand is a walker’s paradise.

With more than 12,000 miles of public trails crosscrossing the country’s two islands, there’s no shortage of options.  Hikes to volcanoes, glaciers, waterfalls, alpine lakes, mud pools, geysers and other natural features range from less than an hour to multiple days.

I recently wrote about five day hikes I liked on my fall 2016 trip to New Zealand for The Dallas Morning News. You can read the full article, but these are the hikes with a map below:
