Last week of South Island

sunny 20 °C

Went to Queenstown and did canyoning at Routeburn (45min drive from Queenstown). This involves abseiling, climbing, swimming, jumping and sliding down waterfalls and following the water to the bottom of the canyon. Was a great day!

Headed down to Milford Sound, went on a cruise boat and saw lots of seals. The mountains around the harbour where the boat left from was so beautiful. Stayed at Gunn’s Camp, a valley close to Milford Sound, which were cute little cabins but there was so many sand flies.

Once got back to Queenstown, went on a 4x4 adventure up to Macetown. The guide/driver told us so many interesting facts about the gold mining around this area. The journey took us up mountains, across various rivers (through the water) and the scenery was to die for.

Went to Mount Cook which is the third glacier area have had the privileged of seeing within the south island. The hostel we stayed in had an amazing few of Mt Cook.

Went to Kaikoura where I got up at 4am to go 25 mins out on boat into the ocean and find LOTS of wild dusky dolphins. This was just amazing, I cannot find the words to describe the experience as got to get into the water and swim with them. Defiantly something ticked off the list to do before I am 30!

Headed back over on the ferry to the north island for my last week in New Zealand.
