We are so lucky that there is such an amazing number of excellent hikes in the area. One of them takes you up to Pakituhi hut, high above lake Hawea. It is steep but rewarding with fantastic scenery. The flora is pretty special too and yesterday even the temperature was perfect for Lorraine and Iris.
While we are keeping busy with hiking, walking and trekking in the Wanaka area, mountain guide Gaz is based in an alpine hut in Westland National Park with a team of four mountaineers who are learning tricks and techniques for alpine climbing.
And Wanaka, that charming small town which is our home, is gearing up for a busy festive season. The buzz about #gigatownwanaka is of course still going on and feel free to give us your support.
