Wellington Walking and Hiking

The compact nature of Wellington means walking is a great way to see many of the city's attractions. A popular route is to take in the views at the top of the Cable Car then walk back down through the Botanic Garden. 

Walking Tours with knowledgeable guides are a good way to learn about the history of the city. Film buffs may prefer a tour of the locations that starred in the Lord of The Rings and Hobbit films. A visit to Zealandia, the first fully-fenced urban eco-sanctuary in the world provides 32 kilometres of walking tracks through the Sanctuary Valley.
