Nau mai, haere mai - welcome to Deep Nature. I'm Marios, delivering the best of Aotearoa's nature walks to your device.
Over 500 originally researched walks. Deep Nature is authentic. I've personally walked all the tracks and spent months in libraries uncovering interesting information on New Zealand/Aotearoa.
Your Perfect Walk
With so many walks in New Zealand, how do I choose? I’ve given every walk multiple filters. This means you can find the right walk on the right day. It’s personalised and flexible.
Just The Best
Save your leg work for the tracks. No other map or app will save you so much research time. Make the most of your valuable time to discover my Deep Nature ‘Top Walks’.
Once you’re on the track, all the information is on your device - so you can get a deeper appreciation of our natural splendour. That’s why you’re here after all.
Backed up with Rankers reviews from travellers like you. With the Rankers.co.nz website, you can read and leave reviews to get independent information.
Kia Ora, Marios here. Since the day I got here over 20 years ago, I have not stopped exploring.
With boots laced up, pen, paper and camera in my backpack, I have ventured up the nooks and crannies. It has also been a privilege to meet some extraordinary locals and research the snippets of history that give depth to the landscape.
It’s now a pleasure to share the best of these experiences with you - to help make your travels in Aotearoa/New Zealand all the richer.
The walks selected here are not your average shallow ‘copy and paste’ from the internet.
They are selected from my experiences and for their variety. Some you will know from your own research. Many you will not. Treat the selection like a degustation menu. There’s tastes of geological power, botanical beauty, pioneer heartache and Maori spirit. Some places you may have to yourself, others you will share. But all will leave you with a deeper appreciation of these beautiful islands.
