One area I really enjoyed that I don't see mentioned much was Mount Owen, in Kahurangi NP near Murchison on South Island's northwest side. The karst there is phenomenal. I did a solo day trip from Murchison to the summit and nearly 20 yrs later it still stands out as one of my best mountain days ever. Mostly hiking with some easy scrambling near the summit. Didn't see anybody all day, bar an Army helicopter flying over - military was practicing caving in an adjacent valley.
