Wild coasts, jaw-dropping cliffs and caves, tranquil bays, thermal hotspots, towering alps, primeval forests, lakes and braided rivers, offshore islands … New Zealand’s natural wonders are top of anyone’s must-see list.
Peter Janssen’s magnificent touring guide dedicated to natural attractions is structured geographically around itineraries – 22 in the North Island and 25 in the South – each of which takes in several sites within one area, describing their natural beauty and listing a few good short walks or detours that show off the scenery at its best. The itineraries are flexible, allowing the reader to simply follow the book or use it as back-up for more personalised touring plans.
The text of A New Zealander’s Guide to Touring Natural New Zealand is supported by route instructions, detailed maps, illustrated panels on notable plants and animals, and stunning images from Andrew Fear – a leading New Zealand landscape photographer.
