NZAC Members Price: $30 (login or join)

The valleys and mountains of Otago and South Westland have some of New Zealand’s greatest and most popular walks – as well as some of the most spectacular and inaccessible terrain. 

Moir’s Guide North provides accurate and easy to use information about all the well-used tramping routes in the region as well as many little known and remote areas.

Are you planning to walk the Greenstone, Routeburn, Rees–Dart, Wilkin or Young–Siberia tracks? Or set out on a transalpine expedition into a remote corner of South Westland?

Moir’s Guide North gives you the information you need. Since 1925 it has been the essential guide for trampers, hunters and mountaineers visiting the country between the Hollyford valley and Lake Ōhau. The editors have tramped most of the tracks and routes, and support from the outdoor community and DOC staff ensures thatMoir’s Guidehas the most complete and accurate coverage of this region.

All map references and hut and track information have been updated. Several new areas are included for the first time.
