Trip Reports

Upper Otaki  Gorgeous gorges

Traditionally, the Otaki gorge below Waitewaewae Hut was the domain of trampers with tyre tubes in low summer flows, and the occasional heli-kayaker when it been raining. Now, like many of the Tararua gorges, this is set to become a classic packrafting trip.

Ski Touring  The Fox Neve

The west coast neve's are a magical ski touring destination. Whilst there's plenty of scope for very intense lines, there's also plenty of mellow terrain for when the snow isn't quite in condition. Regardless of the skiing, it is an incredible place to visit.

The upper Waiau

The thing about packrafting is, that the whole experience is greater than the sum of the two parts. Join Dan Clearwater as he traverses the Opera Range and paddles the Waiau River.

Climb  An Adventure on Fastness Peak

"To me climbing is not so much about iron will and determination but more about fitting who you are and your state on a particular day with a realistic goal. I am always intrigued about the inner workings of body and mind and how they allow you to succeed and come home safely"...powered by thoughts of social recognition and sexual reward, Erik Bradshaw explores the south face of Fastness
