Fiordland

Big Hollyday

Exact dates in December 2022 TBD. A SCAR (self contained adventure racing) event. Cruise around the Hollyford-Big Bay-Pyke circuit utilizing a packraft.

WTF (Wilderness Traverse of Fiordland)

Exact dates in January 2022 TBD. This is part of our SCAR series, but feels more like an adventure race than the Big Hollyday because of the numerous route choices.  Teams of two to four will trek and paddle their way from a start somewhere in Fiordland to a finish line somewhere else.

Forgotten Lands  Mavora and Livingstone Ranges, Southland

Why is land classification important? What are the consequences of classifying an area as a stewardship land as opposed to a national park? FMC Executive Crystal Brindle explains how classification works and champions for the Mavora Lakes Conservation Area and Livingstone Mountains to be awarded the highest tier of protection.

Kowhai  The Dancing Tree

Stepping onto the small ‘Adventure Craft’ takes me across the Waiau River – that small impediment that keeps people from exploring this section of the park as often as they otherwise might.

Manapouri to Foveaux Strait  The quintessential Fiordland journey

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. We had a small box of food delivered to Lake Roe Hut on the Dusky Track to pick on the way. For two weeks we linked together rivers, Fiords, lakes, some trails and a few different mountain ranges to make it to the Southern Ocean.
