Mount Cook Aoraki Ascent

As for the Mt Cook trip, it was absolutely brilliant. Thoroughly enjoyed it and the 10 day course taught me a lot! I'm already thinking of what I would like to climb next.... Possibly something in the Himalayas. Just need to keep up the fitness (and save up a lot of money!!).

Molesworth High Country Cycle

From scenic wine regions to surreal mountain landscapes this trip in the Northern Canterbury and Marlborough districts is a delight. Cycle the quiet rural back roads in the emerging wine growing district of Waipara Valley, learn regional history, discover therapeutic qualities of the Hanmer Springs hot pools and cycle the Molesworth Valley along isolated roads flanked by rugged mountains. Stay on a remote back country merino sheep farm nestled under Mt. Tapuae-o-Uenuku, the highest mountain outside of the Southern Alps.
