Huts & Backcountry Shelters I have visited




Here in New Zealand we have a network of over 900 back country huts that we can use for a minimal charge. Most of these are administered by the Department of Conservation while others are owned by hunting/fishing/MTB/alpine clubs.  
Here is a complete list of the back country huts/shelters I have visited:
