The plane tickets are bought for departure on 25th December against Auckland NZ where we will go ourselves out of this total of 3000 km hike. The plan is (of course) to take the trip in stage races, as we did in Portugal and Spain 2013. We expect, hope to travel approximately 1.500 km on our slightly more than 30 days.
We go directly south from Auckland and hope to reach Christchurch latitudes, so that search into town and take a flight back to Auckland before heading home to Denmark. We have been in contact with tourist agencies, others who have walked the journey and a New Zealand Ultra Runner society for help with a bit of practical beforehand.
