The wilderness lodge was in a lovely location and was very comfortable. They offer walks and talks on different things around the lodge. We did two of the trips/talks and they were very informative and good quality. A very enjoyable stay

So now with 13 days done, we've just past the halfway point of the ...
... We drive for four hours. For the entire journey there is no single point where it would not be possible to stop the car, look arround and say `hmmm, splendid view, nice scenery' It seems like almost the entire South island is a scenic route.
We finally arrive at Haast, the southern end of this north/south highway. Its like frontierland here, all hunting and fishing types with beards, tattoos piercings and big hats. It's all isolated small ...
