This is a fully revised and updated version of Peter Janssen’s hugely popular book A Walk A Day. It has 365 short walks (and a bonus walk for the leap year) meaning locals and overseas visitors will always be able to find a short walk anywhere in New Zealand.
All of the walks are three hours or less and will suit those holidaying, those short on time, those who enjoy walking but do not want a long tramp with heavy boots and those who are walking with young families.
There are over 100 new walks in this version of A Walk A Day.
Arranged according to region, and prefaced with a handy map overview, it’s easy to see at a glance where the walks can be found in each region. Every entry has a brief summary, with notes on track gradient, access, and walking times. Peter Janssen has an engaging writing style, describing history, anecdotes, and points of interest along the walk.
Two inserts of colour photographs highlight particular places of scenic interest.
