New Zealand’s tallest peak is Mount Cook, where the landscape is otherworldly and fantastic in every sense. Depending on your itinerary, you can hike the base of the mountain on accessible trails that take a few hours to complete or you can make a quick stop at Tasman Lake for a picturesque walk under an hour. © Rinus Baak | Dreamstime.com

Tips / Other

Packing for a hike can seem straightforward enough: light backpack, water bottle, hiking boots and some snacks. With varied terrain and changing seasons leading to fickle and sometimes unpredictable weather, there are a few odds and ends you can add in your bag to cover all bases.

 

Chance of Ice

In the event ice and snow is covering some upcoming trails, Yaktrax can slip on your hiking boots and help gain traction on slippery trails. Just choose your size and slip on before venturing over slick paths. Pack a few body warmers to have on hand, in case sore muscles or a cold front come in.

 

Chance of Rain

A lightweight slicker is always great to have on hand for a transitional-season hike. Having a light, water-proof jacket rolled up tightly in your backpack is a great fall back for cooler weather. Bundle a pair of dry, clean socks in case you need to layer or change.

 

Chance of Sun

Sunscreen, bug spray, sunglasses and hats are always great accessories to travel, especially on a hike.

 

Don’t forget safety precautions, like first aid kits, water filter systems, fire-starters, maps and portable phone chargers. Shop more camping and hiking gear to get some inspiration for your next hike, but with the added security of having a few emergency backups.
