On Christmas Eve we set off from the West Arm of Lake Manapouri with around a weeks’ worth of food, packrafting and tramping gear, a bunch of TOPO maps and loose plans to make it to Foveaux Strait.

For two weeks we linked together rivers, Fiords, lakes, some trails and a few different mountain ranges to make it to the Southern Ocean.

PRANZ will be hosting the 2018 meetup in Te Anau this march. There will be workshops and river trips through the weekend, and hopefully lots of un-official trips with new friends in the week afterwards. All the information about the meetup is on the PRANZ website.
