Classic Tramping in New Zealand

Author(s): Shaun Barnett

Tramping & Mountaineering | Secondhand

Classic Tramping in New Zealand is a beautifully photographed and sensitively written tribute to twelve classic New Zealand tramping trips. A sister volume to the best-selling Classic Walks of New Zealand, this book covers tramps that are more challenging than the best known tracks, but which typify the essential New Zealand tramping experience. The twelve trips described range from moderate three-day tramps to more challenging multi-day adventures for the more experienced trampers. They include such North Island classics as the Tararua Peaks and the Kaweka/Kaimanawa Traverse and well known South Island tramps such as Nelson Lakes to Lewis Pass, the Three Passes in Arthur's Pass and the Dusky Track in Fiordland National Park. In addition the book also provides up-to-date information, route summaries and descriptive maps to create a must-have book for all trampers and lovers of New Zealand's wild places.
