    New Zealand is famous for "tramping" (hiking). If you are an avid hiker, I would highly recommend that you visit NZ. One of the best hikes I did was the Tangariro Crossing. It's a 1-day hike that takes you through such an alien landscape that at moments you would think you'd stepped on planet Mars.

    Does anyone else have any places to recommend for hiking in New Zealand?

    There's so many of them! There are tramps called the Great NZ walks, all spectacular and in both the north and south islands. Tongariro is one of them, which I have completed and agree with your description of it. I have also completed Lake Waikaremoana walk which took 4 wonderful days. There are also tracks that run right through NZ, the name of which escapes me at this moment, most of which run through the ranges. Some people do the whole walk which takes months, or you can choose to do parts of it, some of them day tramps. Great DOC huts to stay in on the ranges.
    I love tramping NZ!
