  • Standing on the Tasman Glacier, New Zealand

  • Standing on a Glacier seams to be a part of a lot of peoples Bucket List. I can't say it was a part of mine, regardless of that I have been given the chance to experience it. And why not make the most of it? Back in November when I was traveling the South Island with Alina, we (well she more) w[...]
  • 5 hours of Snow - Wanaka in Winter Wonderland

  • I feel like the only way to give it a little bit of justice, especially because of this extreme weather change, is to share the day that my view of Wanaka changed. Yesterday was still a beautiful sunny autumn day, and overnight turned to an episode of  Wanaka in Winter. Wanaka has turned into a b[...]
  • A Autumn Adventure in Wanaka, New Zealand

  • Sitting on top of a Mountain, or should I rather say hill looking over autumn in Wanaka, where all the leaves are coloured in golden yellow and orange hues, makes my heart skip....not a bad place is you ask me, to get some thoughts down on Paper. Well the digital Paper anyways.Its great how the wo[...]
  • 8 things to do in Mount Cook National Park

  • Mount Cook National Park has a lot of offer, not only is it home to New Zealand highest Mountain but has a total of 700km mˆ2, there is a lot of exploring that can be done. Only about 40% of that area being a Glacier, is a little hard to explore. Now most of us, will never be able to explore every[...]
  • Mueller Hut Hike in 42 Photographs

  • I believe a story can best be told from Photographs. No matter how hard you try to explain something, it will never have the same feel. The reason for the Mueller Hut Photographs and 42 of them to be exact. This is especially the case when it's unique and special until they have seen it for themself[...]
  • The Hike to Mueller Hut

  • Mueller Hut is one of those Must Do New Zealand things. I found this to be one of the most challening and hardest Hikes I have done in this small Country.  It was even worth than Avalache Peak, in Arthus Pass. Somehow it was also one of the most rewarding hikes I have done. A complete sence of ac[...]
  • 5 hikes and things to do in Arthurs Pass

  •  When I first arrived in Arthurs Pass I was already flashed from/the drive there such pure beauty. New Zealand really is a Playground of complete Nature. Sometimes when we plan things we dont realize how small villiages are, what little population there is and what there really is to do, because [...]
  • Tranz Alpine Train to Arthurs Pass, NZ

  • One of New Zealands most scenic (Train) Jounrey's, the Tranz Alpine Train. Every Traveller has there own Agenda, what may seam cool and exiting to one is just boring to the other. Some like to Party hard, other like to drink Tea and watch the stars at night. But really what ever we like to do is be[...]
  • New Zealands Largest - The Tasman Glacier

  •   Getting in touch with the Tasman Glacier.  The Tasman Valley located in the Aoraki / Mount Cok National Park is home to the largest Glacier in New Zealand with a distance of 17km.  On a very fine Sunny Day, I took the chance to go out with the Glacier Explorers onto the Tasman Glacier L[...]
  • Hiking the Avalanche Peak in Arthurs Pass, New Zealand

  • Hearing the term "Avalanche Peak" should have scared me off but it didn't, infact I though nothing off it. . At the i-Site it was displayed as one of the many Day Walks - or should I say tramping trails? Having planned on being in Arthurs pass for four Days, and there was nothing else do to exce[...]
  • Hooker Valley Track in Mount Cook / Aoraki National Park

  • No this is not where Hookers live, or will you find any! It is however one of the easiest, most spectacular and popular walks in the Mount Cook National Park, maybe even one of the best Walks in all of New Zealand. Welcome to the Hooker Valley Track! Sometimes I don't know if all of the is qu[...]
  • 15 Impressions of Mount Cook National Park

  • Mount Cook National Park is one of 14 National Parks of New Zealand. It is the home of New Zealands tallest peak Mount Cook / Aoraki at 3573m. Aoraki translates from Mauri into Cloud Piercer -oh how true that is always at the border of the Clouds. It is also home of the Tasman Glacier, the longes[...]
