There are many things that define us as “kiwis” – from barefoot shopping to supporting the All Blacks, there are lots of building blocks that make up our cultural identity. Perhaps one of the largest blocks there is, would be a connection with the outdoors.
Kiwis are an “outdoorsy” bunch of people. Whether you moved to New Zealand last decade, last year or last week it is an inescapable reality that at some point you will find yourself looking for adventure in our great outdoors (also known as the “wops”). We are lucky in Aotearoa to have an abundance of natural serenity right on our doorstep, but sometimes it can be difficult to figure out where to go and what to do first. Luckily, our good mates from Breadcrumbs have put together a short collection to give you some inspiration for where to start!
