In this two part series we explore the South Island in winter - challenged by the weather, things don't quite go to plan - but that's part of the fun!
Join us as we cross visit Lake Coleridge, Arthur's Pass, Maori Gully Road and more on our epic adventure
Cruise up Harper Road to the top of Lake Coleridge. Rough gravel road the whole way in - and in winter, covered in snow! Take the day and cruise through - or stay at the campsite at the end.
This large, open campsite is near the junction of the Bealey and Waimakariri Rivers. it is popular in the summer.
A scenic road (half gravel half tarmac) that winds through native bush as it follows the Little Hohonu River and has stunning views over Lake Brunner.
Maori Gully Road became very tight in places with Gorse lapping at your paint work, with fallen trees, ruts and loose rock. It became quite challenging.
This sheltered and secluded campsite is the site of an old gold mining town. Explore the gold mining area and try your luck fossicking in the nearby creek.
