    Retreat from the wild west coast

    A wonderful retreat on the wild west coast. There is plenty to see and do here, including guided walks to see eels, the inspiration for the Avatar tree and the Tasman Sea. Though all of the guided walks cost additional, you can explore most areas on your own or take the kayaks out for a spin. Be prepared to fully immerse yourself in nature as there is no cell phone service and meals are served family style with everyone at the lodge. There is a laundry facility here if you need it.

    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

    Today we leave Te Waonui Forest Retreat and head off to Lake Moeraki Wilderness Lodge. It is cloudy outside and a little chilly, but no doubt the sun will burn off the clouds once we are on our bikes. We started the morning off with a surprise send off from the …

    ... not been so delightful for us. We can tell we have scaled mountains and driven through masses of rainforest, we have seen many waterfalls on our way, but the grey sky and heavy cloud have prevented us from seeing it it's real beauty. So we drove toward queenstown until the sun started to set and then we parked up in a carpark and are now free camping in the rainforest surrounded by ice capped mountains. We hope to wake up to fantastic scenery, but ...

    ... got cold.

    The views were amazing and we were both sad to see we had each forgotten our hat and gloves. We took some pictures together before I became too cold and decided to head back down to the treeline. Ben continued up further to get some of the views and some pictures before meeting back up with me. It actually began snowing while we were at the treeline.

    The trek down was not too bad. The roots were slippery ...

    ... the stars, with the first night without cloud or rain for a long time.

    The next day we went back towards the saddle between the lakes and found a path up to Isthmus peak. It was a small track that started on a farmers field amidst cows and sheep. ( I came very close to riding a sheep again but still no dice!) We made the slow ascent up the mountain up switchbacks. past sheep and more sheep, then a flock of wild deer on the ...

    ... a month before it turns into the fungus gnat. From there, the gnat has about 48 hours (depending on the sex) to find a mate. Neither has any mouth so they will die of starvation, the male faster than the female as the female has to lay about 1000 eggs. Okay, that's enough about the life of a glow worm.

    After viewing the glow worms, it was off to bed, for we had yet another early morning as we head off towards Wanaka!
