    • Should I bring all my backpacking gear to New Zealand or just do day hikes?

      Christchurch Jan 11, 2016 at 11:13 AM

      Hello. My wife and I are traveling to New Zealand for our honeymoon. We are going to land in Christchurch and do a giant loop around the South Island. We are renting a car. We are really adventurous and love backpacking, hiking, and trail running. I am trying to decide if we should bring our backpacking gear (tent, sleeping bags, etc). We usually only do primitive camping (no picnic tables, showers, car access, etc). Are there a lot of places to camp primitively in New Zealand or is it mostly in campsites? Thank you!

      Dart Valley advice

      by JohanIsWeg Online Now Nov 11, 2008 at 11:00 PM

      Can anyone help with a really nice and scenic walk/tramp near the Dart River into the Dart Valley - in the Paradise vicinity of Glenorchy?

      There's a lovely river entry called The Chasm upriver from the Arcadia Homestead, which I'd love to see! Is there an inexpensive way of visiting this location, either on foot or kayak?

      How far could you go in a non-4WD vehicle towards Paradise? Could you go past Diamond Lake as far as Arcadia Homestead or even further?

      Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks!
