New Zealand's Great Walkers Reach the Finish Line

Celsias

Air New Zealand’s Great Walkers have this afternoon completed nine Great Walks in nine weeks. 

 

great walkersOver the past nine weeks Joel Cogger (Australia), Richard Harrison (United Kingdom) Stephanie Hathaway (United States) and Toshitake Suzuki (Japan) have been travelling New Zealand conquering each of the nine Great Walks back to back – Kepler, Rakiura, Milford, Routeburn, Abel Tasman Coast, Heaphy, Whanganui Journey, Lake Waikeremoana and most recently, the Tongariro Northern Circuit.

 

The four were chosen late last year after a global search by Air New Zealand and thegt walk Department of Conservation (DOC) which saw applications received from people in 45 countries.  The search was conducted following the signing of a three year partnership between the airline and DOC which sees the airline provide support for new conservation programmes around the Great Walks network.

 

As well as the walks themselves, the group have been busy taking part in a raft of other outdoor activities and have been joined along the way by Air New Zealand and DOC staff.  They’ve also been keeping a live blog of their Kiwi adventure online atwww.greatwalkernz.com
