If you only had a few weeks...
If you only had three weeks in the fall (March-April) to walk the most fabulous routes (north & south islands, thinking two weeks south & one north), which would top the list? I'm coming from the American midwest where there are no mountains, glaciers, beaches, trees, waterfalls, oceans, etc., etc., so am really interested in every possible thing. Except crowds. Unless they're crowding something that can't be missed.
Check out guide book "Tramping in New Zealand" by lp, ed 2006. Here is the link http://shop.lonelyplanet.com/Primary/Product/Activity_Guides/Walking_Guides/PRD_PRD_1501/Tramping+in+New+Zealand+Guide.jsp?bmUID=1196571717990 Happy tramping
Can you recommend any other guidebooks that may describe less popular or even little-used tramps? Or is the DOC website best for that? How about topo map recommendations?
Oh, and how about scrambles (non-technical peak ascents), any information out there?
