There’s no debate.
The Land of the Long White Cloud Aotearoa is by far the single best hiking destination on Earth.
North Island? South Island? Both are great. And both much different.
The most compelling evidence that New Zealand has EVERYTHING a hiker could want is with photos:
New Zealand is insanely great for hikers. It’s safe. It’s clean. Trails are not crowded. It’s terrific for kids.
There’s no risk of altitude sickness as the glaciated peaks are at low elevation.
Best months are mid-November through mid-April for most treks.

Our favourite tramp in New Zealand is the volcanic Tongariro Circuit. You’ll feel like you’ve entered Mordor in Lord of the Rings.

I agree that New Zealand has one of the best hiking trail in the World, but I don’t agree that it’s #1. Sir Edmund Hillary himself told that if you want to do hiking or mountaineering, you must go to Nepal.
Well … I’ve only been to New Zealand once. Nepal 10 times, so perhaps I agree. 😀
