We're back down south! Epic weather, epic views - pretty hard to beat!
In this episode Daniel heads out to explore the canals and rivers around Twizel before the fam' heads up to Aoraki Mt Cook National Park to check out the Blue Lakes on foot before heading back down the lake to recreate a photo Daniel took years ago.
A short hop through the Pukaiki River. Ranges from fairly easy to tricky depending on the river flow
PLEASE CHECK LAKE LEVELS BEFORE ATTEMPTING - the river may rise quickly and wash you away.
A super bumpy track that runs up the side of the Pukaki River, nothing too tricky, though worth keeping an eye on the lake levels at the river end.
Rocky, bumpy and short - the Tasman Valley track is well worth the short detour to see the iceberg filled lakes from the glaciers above. Sadly the road doesn't go as far as it once did due to a massive slip, the accessible parts are well worth the trip if you're up that way.
The track can be closed over winter if there's been significant snowfall to reduce the risk of avalanches causing issues.
An amazing lake filled with chunks of ice!
