Stewart Island New Zealand is third island and the most part in this area is an national park. For this reason, here you can see a lot of virgin forests, swamps, granite rocks, birds and kiwi Kaka parrots and white-tailed deer.

There is only one walkway for tourists in Stewart Island North West Circuit. This trail passes through swamps and rivers, admiring the lonely beach and listen to the birds sing how.

You spend the night in a tent or bungalow, what more does a person to feel the wildlife of this remote island. There is another remote route that I personally do not recommend it because it is surrounded - Tin Range and Mount Allen.

Walking is more, the trail goes through dense forest, climb up the cliffs and going through marshes, where there are many summer flies. Night sleeping in tents and listen to the chirping of rare birds Kiwi, is not it great?

Due to the proximity of Stewart Island to the southern polar circle, you can observe auroras. Geographically Stewart Island is 47 kilometers wide as the Crimea with the difference that here feel the cold winds coming from Antarctica. Bookmark and Share
