Peter Janssen | paperback | 240 pages | 2020
Wherever you are in the North Island you’re sure to be within reach of a short walk with an excellent destination. Peter Janssen has hand-picked more than 250 short but memorable walks throughout the mainland and offshore islands. All walks will suit those who enjoy walking but do not want to a long tramp with heavy boots and a pack, or travellers who are short on time and those with young families. Every walk includes a highlight, whether it’s an historic landmark such as Kerikeri’s Stone Store; a spectacular natural feature, such as the Craters of the Moon near Lake Taupo; or simply a great view, such as can be had from Makorori Point on East Cape or Wellington’s Mt Victoria.
Each description includes:
- how to get there
- Grade and duration
If you like stretching your legs without going too far, pack a copy of Excellent Short Walks.
