Headlined as a “new long-distance trail to get lost in”, Outdoor’s Stephanie Pearson writes that “after ten years of trail building, Te Araroa is open.” “The path starts at Cape Reinga, requires a ferry ride across the Cook Strait, and ends on the southernmost tip of the South Island.” The magazine also names Lake Wanaka “Best New Adventure Hub” in its 2012 Travel Awards. Colorado’s adventure sports capital Durango was runner-up.
