Rainforest and Fiordland


Rainforest and Fiordland

After a sort visit in Wanaka we drove to the Fiordlands in Southwest. The Fiordland was one of the reasons why I wanted to travel to NZ. I can tell you that it was at least as beautiful as expected. We did 2 day tours and one shorter hike. For me it was a new experience to hike trough the rainforest and be in the fjords at the same time. I have been in Norway some few times but the forest and the plants are so different. I would have liked to go for a longer walk but I have to come back to NZ another time for that. We got to see beautiful nature and fast changing weather.



After the fjords we didn’t know what to do next, we had many ideas but the weather was not good enough for making our ideas coming trough so we decided to look for a place where we could do some work and get accommodation and food in exchange. We were lucky and in less than 5 minutes we found a nice place in Tuatapere, far South. It´s a place with a big garden, café, restaurant and a campsite and the most important thing: friendly people. Ou I almost forgot to tell you that they also have really good cakes and muffins at this place, I can recommend Last Light Lodge if you pass by Tuatapere.
