    Before the two hour drive south to 'Glacier Country' we stopped off at Hokitika Gorge which was well worth the half hour journey in the wrong direction. The water at the gorge was unbelievably blue, due to the melted glaciers, and we could cross a swingbridge over the other side. It looked amazing. After that little stop off we began our journey to the village of Franz Josef home to a 11km glacier, a remnant from the Ice Age. The town was also at the foot of the Southern Alps ...

    After drinking in our fill of the scenery we retraced our steps and retrieved our bags, then walked up the valley to the Aspiring Hut.

After all the rain, it was nice to sit in the sun for a while!

    ... would see us climb close to 8000m vertically.

    Day 0: This was the day to get up to the beginning of the trip, so we could start nice and early the next day. First though, we needed to get from Wanaka to Queenstown to sell our car. We’d decided to try selling it before our trip to save ourselves the hassle of selling in Christchurch in our last week. Last week we’d found a buyer, and they’d agreed that we could drop it off this ...

    ... mountains but we gave it a miss in favour of driving to the Fox Glacier and doing a short walk there to a pretty lookout. Lotte enjoyed the walk and the big rock at the lookout which was apparently perfect for toddlers to climb all over.

    Then we got back in the car to drive to Haast, which took us along a very pretty stretch of coast. We hopped out to take a couple of pics at Knights Point Lookout. We picked up ...
