    Castle Hill

    February 26 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    The Kura Tāwhiti Conservation Area is also known as Castle Hill because of the grand limestone rock formations that are found here. The rocks are really popular for bouldering, unfortunately there isn't much sport climbing. We tried to boulder a little and then moved on to just enjoy the magnificent landscape.Read more

    Cave Stream

    February 26 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Cave Stream, also known as Broken River Cave, is a 594m long limestone cave. Equipped with headlamps, a torch and stable shoes we decided to go caving. We walked upstream from one end of the cave to the other through the river. The deepest part was right at the start of the cave where we got waist-deep in the water. During the passage through the cave we saw some really interesting rockformations and waterfalls.Read more

    Otira Viaduct

    February 26 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    We drove along Arthur's Pass that connects the West Coast at Kumara to Christchurch on the East Coast. Arthur's Pass National Park was the first National Park on NZ's South Island and lies in the Southern Alps.
    Our first stop along this route was the Otira Viaduct where we met about 15 Kea. Kea are very cheeky alpine parrots who love to pose for a picture but also like to chew rubber off cars.

    After our visit to the Blue Pools we drove all the way along the West Coast to Hokitika. After spending the night there we went to Lake Kaniere for the day. We saw the Dorothy Falls, had lunch right next to the lake and walked to Canoe Cove.Read more

    Blue Pools II

    February 24 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    The Blue Pools are located in Mount Aspiring National Park and on the Haast Pass that connects Wanaka to the West Coast. On our last trip through the South Island we already visited the Blue Pools. As it was the end of May it was sunny but unfortunately too cold to go for a swim. Jake always wanted to go swimming in the really blue water of the pools. So we stopped there again this time round and he went in the water even though it was raining.Read more

    We visited Bailey and James at their Wwoofing Farm on Lake Hawea. Jake and James did some fishing before we headed inside for drinks and games. In the morning we helped feeding the pigs and got to cuddle with the pet deer Heidi.Read more
