Alexander Stewart’s New Zealand - The Great Walks is the comprehensive and leading guide for those wanting to explore the islands’ wilderness paradises and is highly recommended by Stanfords. The guide covers a range of walking routes including the Lake Waikaremoana Track, Tongariro Northern Circuit, Whanganui River journey and the Abel Tasman Coast, Heaphy, Routeburn, Milford, Kepler and Rakiura tracks. Each of the routes are accompanied by a route map, which varies between 1:40,000 and 1:80,000, depending upon the length and distance of each tramp.

The guide is structured in 5 main parts - Planning your Tramp, Minimum Impact and Safe Trekking, New Zealand, Gateway Cities and Route Guide - exploring the very best walking opportunities that are available. Part 1 provides practical information on who to go with, when to go, budgeting and costs, what to take and route options. In the second chapter there is information on minimum impact trekking and safe tramping, with particular reference to fires and river hazards.

Part 3 provides facts about New Zealand, information on local fauna and flora and practical information for visitors including guidance on documents and visas, money, getting around, accommodation, driving, food, things to buy and post and telecommunications. There are also valuable introductions to the cities of Auckland and Wellington. Detailed route descriptions are accompanied by unique scale maps hand-drawn and specially designed by the author with trekkers specifically in mind. The guide includes 50 large-scale route maps with features including walking times, directions, tricky junctions, places to stay and eat and points of interest to help trekkers navigate the route.
