What to Take

WHAT TO TAKE ON YOUR NZ GREAT WALK

Packing for a hiking adventure can be tricky, particularly if it’s your first time and you don’t know what to expect, let alone what to take. Being well prepared and ready for the unexpected is key to an enjoyable and safe outdoor experience. You’ve heard us say that the weather in Fiordland can change very quickly, and it’s no secret we do get a lot of rain so you need to be covered for all conditions – rain, snow or shine!

There’s a fine line between taking too much (you have to carry it remember!) and not enough – light and layers are key.  Below, we’ve provided a complete guideline of what we recommend you take on your NZ Great Walk hiking adventure. We can help you with all your Hiking Gear needs to save you lugging it from home, for just a short part of your holiday.

  • I was a little leery about using rented equipment. What Easyhike provided was very high quality. No different than what I would have brought for myself. The packs were great.
