It's on so many people's 'to-do list' but why not make 2016 the year you head down the Whanganui River. This issue of Wilderness explores the best day, the best hour, the best rapid and the best time of year to explore this majestic waterway.

We also take you to the 15 most stunning backcountry lakes in New Zealand - all ideal for a swim or to put up a tent at the shoreline for a room with an unbeatable view.

For those who want something a little more relaxing we visit Great Barrier Island and Banks Peninsula for delightful walking weekends.

We also test three-season boots you'll need this summer, take you on a remote journey through Fiordland and discover why some prefer to hike in the nude!
