About this book

Wild coasts, jaw-dropping cliffs and caves, tranquil bays, thermal hotspots and smoking volcanoes, towering alps and grinding glaciers, primeval forests, lakes and braided rivers, seabird colonies and seal rookeries, offshore islands...New Zealand's natural wonders are top of any tourist's must-see list.

Peter Janssen's magnificent hardback touring guide dedicated to natural attractions is structured geographically around itineraries – 22 in the North Island and 24 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 Touring the Natural Wonders of New Zealand or use it as back-up for their own extended touring plans. The text is supported by route instructions and detailed maps, and illustrated with stunning images from a brilliant landscape photographer.
