Stewart Island (also known by its Māori name Rakiura) is located at the southernmost point of New Zealand. This is one bushy island. Like, seriously COVERED in bush. It is a bushwalkers paradise. It is home to several hiking trails: the Rakiura Track (3 days), North West Circuit (9-11 days), and Southern Circuit (6 days).
Although the Rakiura Track is classified as one of New Zealand’s official “Great Walks”, it is the North West Circuit that is the real gem. If you want a multi-day hiking adventure in true New Zealand style then this bushy and muddy paradise is where you can find it.
