The Great Walker Competition

The Great Walker Competition

Air New Zealand has joined forces with the Department of Conservation to protect and enhance some of New Zealand's most inspiring natural environments. A global search is now underway to find four adventurers to take on the challenge of a lifetime by completing all of New Zealand's nine famous Great Walks in just nine weeks.

The Great Walks span 550km of spectacular New Zealand terrain from the alpine peaks of the Tongariro Northern Circuit to the rainforests of the Heaphy Track, golden beaches, a stunning river journey and the glacial valleys of one of the finest walks in the world, the Milford Track.

It's a fairly long way to walk of course so a moderate level of fitness and can-do attitude are must-haves, plus a love for the outdoors, personality and character! If you're one of the lucky winners you'll be telling the world about the trip on a blog too.
