There is a reason New Zealand is a popular shooting location for fantasy movies and TV shows. The stunning and other-worldly landscapes make New Zealand one of the most beautiful countries in the world. There is no better way to take in this beauty than by hiking one of the best day hikes in New Zealand. That said, we have listed ten must-visit hiking trails in the Land of the Long White Cloud.

The Best Day Hikes on New Zealand’s North Island

The North Island is home to a diverse set of stunning landscapes. When comparing hiking conditions between the North and South Island of New Zealand, the North Island offers warmer temperatures on average. From the alpine peaks in Tongariro National Park to coastal paths in Northland, there is something here for everyone, regardless of your hiking style.

Tongariro Alpine Crossing

Tongariro Alpine Crossing - one of New Zealand's best day hikes

One of the best day hikes you in New Zealand would be the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. This hike is so memorable, that many people have heralded it as New Zealand’s Greatest Day Hike. When you try it for yourself, you’ll see that this is no flattery or exaggeration on anybody’s part.

Aside from the stunning mountainous terrain, you’ll be able to see emerald lakes and volcanic views. Since this is rocky and steep terrain, it would be a good idea to bring your hiking poles with you to be safe, even if you’re a veteran hiker. 

 

Tama Lakes Track

Another one of the best day hikes in New Zealand that you should try if you’re hoping to visit beautiful lakes in New Zealand is the Tama Lakes track. This particular hiking trail passes the Taranaki Falls trail, which you’ll pass by in order to get to the Lower Tama Lake lookout. The Tama Lakes Track is a great trail for taking in the view of the Tongariro volcanic area. The whole track takes about 5-6 hours round trip.

Cape Brett Track

Te Toroa Bay from the Cape Brett Trail.

If you want to go hiking along the New Zealand coasts, you should head to the North Island and try the Cape Brett Track. It’s a gorgeous coastal hiking trail that is at the far north of North Island. It’s considered one of the more challenging day hikes in New Zealand, because of the elevation changes and length of the trail. 

If you want to cap your hike off with a refreshing swim at the end of the track, you can head to the Deep Water Cove. It’s possible to do the hike in one day, but that would require you to skip part of the trail. If you have the time, you could consider staying in a hut along the way to turn your hike into an overnight adventure.

Pinnacles Track

Nowadays, most people are aware that New Zealand is the setting of many fantastical movies and shows. The most famous film set in New Zealand within the fantasy realm is the Lord of the Rings. If you want to see one of its filming locations in New Zealand, you should try the Pinnacles Track.

The Pinnacles Track is named so due to the pinnacles towering above you. These are pillars that the winds and water have shaped into what they are now. It takes just under 4 hours to reach the summit from the trail head, which makes the Pinnacles Track one of the best day hikes in New Zealand to enjoy the country’s beauty.

The Best Day Hikes on New Zealand’s South Island

New Zealand’s South Island is home to some of the most stunning landscapes in the country. The Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park has plenty of options for breathtaking day hikes, so any trip to New Zealand should include plenty of time exploring the area. But don’t forget to pay a visit to Wanaka, known for its incredible scenery, snow-capped mountains, and turquoise lakes.

Sealy Tarns Track

Near Sealy Tarns in Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park

The Sealy Tarns Track is one of the more challenging day hikes for New Zealand hikers who want a bit more of an adventure. If you’re hoping to get a gorgeous view of Mount Cook and even Hooker Valley, the Sealy Tarns Track is where you should head to. The entire track takes 3-4 hours, and there are multiple viewpoints along the way for an excellent picnic spot.

Mueller Hut Route

The Red Mueller Hut in Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park

If you’re looking for unique and popular places to go to when hiking New Zealand, you should embark on the Mueller Hut Route. This route is trendy for its red Mueller Hut, hence the name.

Although you can finish this trail within one day, you also have the option of turning it into a 2-day trek and spending the night in the famous red Mueller Hut.

Hooker Valley Track

The Hooker Valley Track is one of the most popular day hikes in New Zealand. It is located within the Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park, South Island.

The Hooker Valley Track in Aoraki/Mount Cood National Park, South Island

Hiking in New Zealand will lead you to all sorts of places that you’ve never seen, let alone heard of before. Therefore, if you come across unique names for hiking trails, don’t be dissuaded.

Such is the case for when you make your way over to conquer the Hooker Valley Track that would lead you right to Hooker Lake. The trail crosses 3 suspension bridges and finishes at a lookout above Hooker Lake with an excellent view of Mount Cook.

This 10 km/6 mile hiking trail is one of the easier day hikes in New Zealand since it’s a flat trail. However, it can get quite crowded, so you should take this track early so that you don’t have to drown in the hiking crowds. You’ll be able to enjoy the Hooker Valley better that way.

Roys Peak Track, Wanaka

Roys Peak Track in the Wanaka region is one of the more challenging day hikes in New Zealand that gets you up to Mount Roy’s summit. It takes about 3 and a half hours to reach the top, where you’ll be rewarded with sweeping views. You should take this track sometime around January to October for the best experience.

Rob Roy Glacier Trail, Wanaka

Beneath Mount Rob Roy, you can try the Rob Roy Glacier Trail, which follows the Rob Roy Stream after crossing the West Matukituki River. The gorgeous stream across the deep grey valley of rocks is a sight to behold. The track typically takes 3-4 hours and is considered an easy track, making it suitable for beginners.

Along the way, you’re going to encounter a beech forest and waterfalls, which adds to its value as a hiking trail.

Avalanche Peak, Arthur’s Pass National Park

View north from the track to Avalanche Peak, Arthur’s Pass National Park

Another peak that you should consider climbing if you’re looking for a challenging hiking trail is the hike up to Avalanche Peak. This one-day hike in New Zealand can take five to eight hours, depending on your condition and hiking skills.

This is a challenging track to traverse, so make sure that you prepare and research beforehand. If there’s poor visibility or the peak is very snowy, it will be dangerous. However, if you go there on a good day, you’ll feel a great sense of accomplishment after reaching the peak and taking in the view of the valleys below.


Hiking in New Zealand is an excellent way to explore the country. That’s because there are plenty of hiking trails that will allow you to explore the beauty of the stunning landscape. If you ever manage to go to this lovely country, be sure to take to the trails and enjoy the best day hikes in New Zealand.

The city of Boston is one that encompasses many things; extensive history, impressive academics, world-class health care and that infamous thick accent that screenwriters across the country have come to know and love. While Boston is known for many “touristy” things, such as Faneuil Hall and the Freedom trail, there are so many other hidden gems in Boston that only locals typically frequent. 

While COVID-19 has affected us, like the rest of the world, Boston is slowly opening its doors and the city is starting to come alive again.  As we are living in unprecedented times, please remember to follow our local COVID guidelines and double check to make sure everything is open prior to arrival!

Off the Beaten Path around Charles Street

In terms of restaurants and bars, some of Boston’s best kept secrets are in the heart of the city, right on Charles Street. Running down the middle of Beacon Hill, Charles Street is a quaint yet bustling street that connects down to the Boston Common. One of my favorite breakfast spots of all time is The Paramount. It’s a small place but be careful, it gets packed on the weekends so head there early. It’s cafeteria style, but the food is top notch. After grabbing breakfast there, you can head on down to the common and walk through the Boston Public Garden

The Boston Public Garden

If you’re looking for more of a true Boston bar in that area, then you have to stop at The Sevens, also on Charles Street. It’s a small bar that perfectly encompasses the intersection of dive bar and historical haunt, and is always overlooked by tourists. If you’re looking for one of those hidden gems in Boston with a true pub room feel, The Sevens definitely is a bar for you.

Exploring Around Newbury & Boylston Street

After exploring the area around Charles Street, you can head on over to Newbury and Boylston streets to do some shopping (window or otherwise), check out the Boston Marathon Finish Line and see the map room at the Boston Public Library

Hidden Gems in Boston: Newbury Street - eight blocks filled with salons, boutiques, and dining.

Boston’s Newbury Street – eight blocks filled with salons, boutiques, and dining.

If you’re exhausted from your shopping and want to grab some food or a drink, there are plenty of great spots along Newbury and Boylston. One of my favorites is Sonsie on Newbury. Sonsie is more of an upscale place but they have a cute bar with great food. Boston overall is a very casual town though, so even “upscale” here really just means put on your jeans instead of your COVID-friendly sweatpants. Stephanie’s on Newbury also is great and has a cute front patio if you want to relax and people watch as well. 

Hidden Gems and Boston Harbor Views in the Seaport District

If you don’t want to get up early for breakfast, then starting your trip in the Seaport District is another great way to go. There they have the Barking Crab, which is a seafood restaurant with a unique atmospheric blend that’s casual, but with fantastic waterfront views.

Hidden Gems in Boston - The Barking Crab in the Seaport District

Nearby is the Envoy Hotel which has more of a high class feel. There you can go to the roof and check out the Lookout Rooftop and Bar. While the drinks are on the pricier side, the scenery is gorgeous, and they even have COVID-approved igloos that you can rent as well. In that area, you also can walk down the street to the rooftop at Legal Seafood, or you can get a true Boston experience by going to Harpoon Brewery for a brew tour and a few beers.

Breweries and Dive Bars off the Beaten Path in Boston

If our city’s watering holes are one of the reasons that brought you here, then look no further. Boston’s food scene is still up and coming, but our alcohol scene has been top level since the Revolution! If you want a brewery feel in downtown, then I would suggest Trillium Brewery which has a Fort Point location and also has an outdoor spot in their Garden on the Greenway. They have great hazy IPAs and are typically rated some of the best beers in the country. 

If you’re looking to take more of a self-guided brewery tour, then I would suggest heading outside of downtown and going into the neighboring town of Somerville. There you can do your own “brew tour” and hit up places like Aeronaut, Remnant Brewing, Slumbrew and the Winter Hill Brewing Company. These places have more of a hipster vibe than the breweries downtown and also can tout some of the best hazy IPAs in the state. 

The Craft Beer Taps at Night Shift Brewery - Everett

The Craft Beer Taps at Night Shift Brewery – Everett

If you’re staying slightly outside the city, I also would always suggest checking out Nightshift in Everett. They have a great outdoor spot and often times have a lot of fun beers relating to classic 80s and 90s themes. They too have a satellite location called Nightshift – Lovejoy Wharf, which is right near the TD Garden and is a perfect spot to stop at if you’re in town checking out a game.

To continue the fun after the game, look no further than Sullivan’s (Sully’s) right down the street from the garden. This is true dive bar atmosphere but is a perfect place if you’re not ready to go home after watching a good Bruins or Celtics game.

Hidden Gems in the Boston North End

Close to the Garden lies Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. This you need to check off your list if you’re coming to Boston, but personally I feel like it’s over touristy and doesn’t really give you a glimpse into the city. After making a quick pit stop there, head over to the city’s famous North End. If you can catch it on a feast day, which occur sporadically throughout the summer, then I would highly suggest checking it out. 

Walk through the city’s old cobblestoned narrow streets and experience our Little Italy, either with friends or on a date night. They have amazing restaurants there, my personal favorite being Bricco, which has incredible food and a dark moody, yet modern, atmosphere. Ristorante Fiore is also fantastic and has a beautiful roof deck for the summer months. 

The Improv Asylum is a great little comedy club right on Hanover Street and makes a perfect pairing with some good Italian food later in the night. After you’ve gone to dinner and checked out a comedy show, then you have to head over to the original Regina Pizzeria at 11 ½ Thatcher Street, just a few minutes’ walk from Hanover. The pizza is truly amazing and is perfect if you need a late-night snack.

Staying Active In Boston

At this point, if you’ve drunk all you can drink and eaten all that you can eat, then I would suggest taking a walk along the Charles River Esplanade to burn off some of those calories. It’s also a great place to bring a picnic and watch the sunset over the river if the weather is nice enough. Parking in that area can be difficult, but you can park at the Boston Common (along the Beacon Street side) and walk over. 

The Charles River Esplanade - A favorite spot for Boston locals

If you want more activity than just a casual stroll and don’t mind waking up early, then you have to check out the November Project. This is a great work out and is free, which is even better! All you need to do is show up. They offer workouts Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at varying locations across the city. Typically, these workouts involve things like doing the stairs at Harvard Stadium or running hill sprints in Brookline. More information can be found on november-project.com and I highly recommend joining their community if fitness is top of your priority list!

If you want to do an activity that doesn’t involve acting like Rocky Balboa running up and down stairs, then check out Boda Borg which is a combination of an escape room and an obstacle course. It’s fun and easy for all levels, perfect for an afternoon with friends. You also could bring your skates and go skating at the public rink in the North End which has a partial glass wall where you can see the harbor. 

Lastly, the city’s location in beautiful New England makes it a great jumping-off point for some amazing day hikes near Boston. This four-season guide includes 60 great trails in Eastern Massachusetts to help you get even further off the beaten path when visiting Boston.

Boston’s Lesser-Known Guided Tour

Now at this point, I don’t know about you, but I’d be pretty tuckered out and would want someone just to show me around. While the Duck Tours are the most popular tour of the city, I always recommend something a little spookier. The Ghost and Gravestones tour of Boston is fantastic, albeit a little gimmicky. They give you a great tour of the city while also enlightening you to some of the spookier aspects of Boston, such as the Boston Strangler, the Great Molasses Flood and the ghosts of the revolution that haunt our streets. You’ll need to make reservations in advance, but I always suggest this as I feel like it’s a little more off the beaten path and a fun way to explore Boston.


Truly, Boston is an amazing town full of a lot of character, grit, and plenty of hidden gems. Of course, if this is your first time visiting, be sure to also take a look at the top things to do in Boston to make sure you’re not missing out! The history here is fantastic and there are enough things to do in and around the city to last a lifetime.  Once you’ve been once, you’ll understand why we Bostonians think our city is “wicked” cool. Have fun!

The North Coast 500 is a captivating trip around some of Scotland’s most awesome sights.

Tintagel Castle on the Atlantic Highway in England

For a route that runs from coast to coast, try the Atlantic Highway located in England in the UK. This 275km route runs along the A39 from the Devon border at Bridgewater to Land’s End.

This four to five-day UK road trip is perfect for nature lovers as it takes in Exmoor National Park along the way and is well worth a visit if you’re itching to get out for a hike. There’s plenty for beach lovers and surfers too, as Bude and Newquay are home to surf schools, while Land’s End looks out to where the Celtic Sea meets the English Channel.

This is a road trip suited to robust motors and confident motorists as there are several narrow roads and hairpin bends that need some masterful driving skills to navigate. It’s worth it for the captivating scenery, however, and is the perfect adventure holiday.

The Causeway Coastal Route, Northern Ireland

There’s also The Dark Hedges, an avenue of trees that featured in Game of Thrones. It’s close to the route and well worth a detour if you’re a fan of the show. You can then head to Giant’s Causeway and Dunluce Castle before arriving in Londonderry.

Whichever road trip route you choose, you’re sure to see the UK in a whole new light.

Despite being a relatively small resort on the Red Sea, El Gouna still impresses travelers everywhere with its never-ending list of attractions. And, if you live in, or near, Egypt, and want to escape the COVID-19 pandemic mess for a while, then try out some (or all) of these 10 fun things to do in El Gouna this summer season.

1. Visit The Tamr Henna Square

“The Tamr Henna Square is located in the heart of Downtown El Gouna,” says Sophie Hanson, a travel writer at OXEssays and Essay Help. “This popular square is not only lined with palm trees, but also has a wide array of shops and cafes with outside seating. Whether you’re there just to chill out to kill time, or looking for a great souvenir to take back home with you, you’ll have a great time at Tamr Henna.”

2. Scuba Diving

Scuba diving is a fun way to explore the shallow reefs, deep walls, and a shipwreck here and there in El Gouna. And as you dive, chances are, you’ll spot the local residents of the sea: leopard sharks, turtles, dolphins, and tuna.

Although scuba diving takes skill, interested parties can take lessons to become a PADI-qualified diver. Or, divers can opt for renting a snorkel and mask from the local beach store.

3. Spa Treatment

Need a break? Try the Thai-themed Angsana Spa at the Movenpick Resort!

Having expert staff, as well as soothing massage sessions, you’ll be able to de-stress for 90 minutes and enjoy every single minute of it.

4. Horseback Riding

Wouldn’t it be cool to ride off into the sunset on a horse? Now, you can!

Horseback riding is one of the best Things To Do In El Gouna

Anyone of any skillset can ride on a horse. For novice riders, they’ll be assigned a guide who will hold the reins, while training the rider for most of the trek. By taking the back roads out of El Gouna, and riding through remote beaches, riders will enjoy the trip on horseback.

5. Stand Up Paddling (SUP)

When stand up paddling (or SUP, for short), you have to actually stand on the board, in order to make it work. Plus, you’ll be working on shallow water, as you paddle. However, it’s still a fun experience, regardless of skillset. Think of it as a suitable intro to surfing. Once you get the hang of it, you won’t want to get off the board!

SUP is not only an activity that can be mastered with practice, but is also a great workout for your arms, core, and abs.

6. Golfing

Golfers of all ages can take advantage of the stunning golf courses in El Gouna. From simple putting to hitting at long-range – expert or novice – El Gouna is just the place for you to get away from the busy streets, and enjoy some peace and quiet on the green.

7. Aquarium

What’s not to like about sea life? El Gouna has a small aquarium, where you’ll see lots of sea life up close without getting wet. Simply walk around, and look at these creatures live there, and then learn more about them and their habitat.

8. Kitesurfing

Kitesurfing is similar to SUP; however, instead of paddling to move the board, you hold onto a kite, and let the wind do the rest! As you explore the remote beaches in El Gouna by kitesurfing, you’ll take in the beautiful sights of the ocean and the brilliant sunshine.

10 Things To Do In El Gouna

Of course, El Gouna offers lessons in kitesurfing. Or, if you prefer, you can always watch kitesurfers at a safe distance.

9. Ride A Segway

Want to practice balancing – but NOT in the water? And, would you rather be window-shopping than being in the water? Then look to riding a Segway.

Segway tours are one of the most popular things to do in El Gouna, and there is almost no shortage of Segways for visitors and tourists to zoom around town on – from off-road areas, to over roads, to around the marina.

10. Organic Farm

“Believe it or not, El Gouna holds the prestigious title of being Egypt’s most environmentally-friendly travel destination,” says Louis Dixon, a lifestyle blogger at Paper Fellows and Boom Essays. “Therefore, they don’t tolerate any littering, and or harming plants.”

In addition, fresh organic produce is sold in the farm’s shop.

Conclusion

So, whether you’re looking for adventure, searching for the best souvenir in Egypt, or want to get away from today’s hard times for a while, then El Gouna is your go-to destination! With countless things to do in El Gouna – especially these 10 described above – you’ll have fun at this resort on the Red Sea!
