The southern end of New Zealand welcomes us to the fiords, and especially the Milford Sound. We are surrounded by mountains and water everywhere with the occasional rainbow!

Across the roof of New Zealand with Lukas Kirchner, during one of the finest weeks of weather for some time. We climbed 'White Dream' on the South Face of Aoraki Mt Cook from the Hooker valley, bivvied at Middle Peak, then set off at sunrise to complete the Grand Traverse of Low, Middle and high Peaks. We set up camp that day at the apex of the Linda Shelf and the Bowie Ridge, before continuing our 'extra' Grand Traverse across Dampier, Vancouver and Malaspina. #mountains #aoraki #mtcook #sunrise #grandtraverse #mountaineering #iceclimbing #sunrise #rockandice #newzealand #southernalps #seekingthelight #nzalpineclub @rab.equipment @lowe.alpine @sonynz @outfitters_newmarket @sony @sonyalphanz @rab.nz @lowealpinenewzealand

I took a stroll along Diamond Creek to Lake Reid after work today for a much needed decompress/realign mission.

Hellooo Friday. . . . . To celebrate surviving my first full week of work after many weeks of holidays and short weeks, and with a cold and in a new position to boot, here's another one of my favorite shots from New Zealand. A hike that I will always remember.

Van Life. Thought I'd have a go at resurrecting some old photo's, way back when I was travelling in 2007. This was our hired campervan on the road to Mount Cook, New Zealand. It's one of those where you stop every 5 minutes to take a photo! 😂 Stunning scenery. Shot on a little Sony Cybershot!

New Zealand South Island - Day 8&10: Mount Cook national park, Lake Pukaki and Akaroa. First time seeing (and holding) icebergs in Mueller Lake after hiking Hooker valley, Mt Cook. Akaroa is a little part of France in NZ, complete with French road names and rare Hector dolphins, little blue penguins (too shy for photos) and stingray! #newzealand #travelphotography #travel #travelgram #instatravel #traveller #travelingram #southislandroadtrip #naturalwonders #hookervalleytrack #southernalps #mtcook #southernwanderer #akaroa

Funny Story. New Zealand roads are very windy... they also have a lot of camper vans driving around. Bad combination. Took me ages to find a place to over take a slow Camper, and what would happen but 5 minutes down the road we see this view and had to stop to take a photo. Cue slow camper and 10 cars behind it pass us again whilst we’re taking in the view, so have to join the queue and start all over again.

From Wanaka a 4 hour drive to Fox Glacier. Stunning drive along the Haas Highway, alpine forest and tantalising glimpses of the snow capped Mt Tasman & Mt Cook, complete with a roadside birthday celebration. Melted snow make blue water pools. Wow. Fox & Franz Josef Glaciers - What can I say -They are unique and absolutely spectacular descending into rainforest. Breathtaking. Great kitchen, great light, great surface made for some creative cooking & photography at Fox Glacier😉 Easy dishes - we’d pack leftovers for hikes. DM if you’d like the recipe 😊 #happybirthdaystam😘#foxglacier#franzjosefglacier #haas#bluewater#paradise #newzealandadventures2020#newzealand#southisland#explore#glaciers#southernalps #family#love

From Fiordland we travelled to serene Wanaka. A huge 18km hike to Aspiring Hut - an amazing effort from Lyra. Felt like we were hiking in the Swiss Alps. At times the backdrop looked like a movie set. Views of the magnificent Rob Roy glacier were on our left. Mt Aspiring one of my favourites - reminiscent of the European alps. ...Also featuring a great right hook from Lyra before we commenced the hike 😂 #fellowshipoflove #newzealandadventures2020#newzealand#southisland#explore#glaciers#southernalps#hiking#mtaspiring#robroyglacier#wanaka #family#love

To say goodbye to the mountains we lived in since August @lilredfaerie and I went on a hike along the mountain from Paradiso to Morcote. We started early in the morning and got to see the sun rise and ended late to see the sun set. The Southen Alps and Lake Lugano were an awesome home while the geoscience students learned about the Alps and geology. #greenbaby #greenbabygoes #lugano #rivasanvitale #paradiso #mercote #hiking #alps #southernalps

New Zealand 🇳🇿January 2020. We started with an early paddle from the edge of Lake Wakatipu 💦 to Pigeon Island 🏖 on a kayak 🛶 with a missing fin, which made it a bit of a struggle to keep straight. After arriving and having lunch with our friends Kat and Jirka who were staying the night before Francesco and I headed across to Pig island. 🐖 Pig island doesn’t contain Pigs but both islands are sanctuaries for the Kereru 🐦 (native wood pigeon) and the endangered Buff Weka. It took us over around 2 hours to circumnavigate the massive Pig Island. As we returned after a small snack break we headed for the trail 🥾. After 2hrs to hiking around Pigeon island we arrived at the peak and were rewarded with a perfect sunset 🌄 and a bottle of Italian 🍷 before heading back to the cabin for the night under a sky brightly lit by starlight 🌌. #queenstown #newzealand #otago #nz #ignewzealand #igersnewzealand #southisland #southislandnz #bestmountainartists #queenstownnz #queenstownholidays #pigeonisland #southernalps #southernalpsnz #pigisland #glenorchy #wakatipu #lakewakatipu #nzsummer #summer #paradisenz #paradise #mountearnslaw #mountaspiringnationalpark #mountalfred #kayaking #kayakingnz #sunset #igsunsets
