Stewart Island is bigger than most people tend to imagine, and no, you won’t be able to walk around the island in a day! The famously muddy North West Circuit is a 10 day, 125km tramp that takes 9-11 days, and takes you around the northern quarter of the island. The 3 day Rakiura Track is a more vigorously maintained alternative. Of course, there are much shorter, also superb walks in the vicinity of Oban, taking from around 30 mins to 4 hours in duration.
