Mike and Margo spent 24 days on New Zealand’s South Island last Jan & Feb, cleverly avoiding the MN Vortex! We spent the first week swimming with dolphins, kayaking the Tasman Sea and hiking Abel Tasman the Nat’l Park where we stayed in wilderness hut bunks several nights near the ocean. We then drove to Christchurch for a two-week tour with THRIVE ADVENTURES and 5 new friends. Highlights included an overnight boat trip on Doubtful Sound and a day in Milford Sound. We hiked on the Routeburn Trak, zip-lined in Queenstown, visited Franz Joseph Glacier, and other spectacular mountain and glacial lake scenery. We stayed at a great rental home on the ocean near Pancake Rocks that could accommodate 13 Rovers on a future expedition!
