NZSF 4 switches to canoeing


NZSF 4 has just completed their hiking section in Nelson Lakes National Park.  Having spent 30 days hiking, they managed to travel over 211 kilometers, gain 4740 meters of elevation and hiked for a total of 145 hours.  They encountered the full spectrum of New Zealand spring weather conditions and travelled through a variety of terrain.  Some of their highlights were getting through the challenging days as a group, their instructors and having the confidence in themselves to complete 6 days of independent travel. 

Although the sun is out the students are happy to have their rain gear

Clarence Pass proved to be a significant and symbolic feature of their expedition.  Not only was there the challenge of getting over the pass to finish their hiking route, but the pass is also the source of the river they are now canoeing on...the Clarence River.  The group had a smooth transition and they are excited to learn some new skills.
