Day 4  8月21日,皇后镇-神奇峡湾-皇后镇。

4天)我们乘坐豪华巴士前往新西兰最着名的旅游胜地米尔福德峡湾。您将体验世界闻名的峡湾的所有自然光彩 – 被茂密的雨林,冰川雕刻的山谷和美丽的瀑布所环绕。

离开皇后镇,我们沿着瓦卡蒂普湖湖岸进入南部农田,前往南岛最大的湖泊蒂阿瑙湖。早茶后,我们沿着湖泊前往峡湾国家公园。进入风景如画的Eglinton,这里是古老的高山森林和喷涌的瀑布,是新西兰仅有的几个可通往冰川的山谷之一,并且可以利用Milford路上的拍照机会,如迷人的Mirror Lakes,在平静的一天,周围的山脉完美地反映在静止的水域和旋风平面,冰川在地形上刻下了他们的标记。

当我们穿越南阿尔卑斯山脉的主要分界线时,我们的玻璃屋顶巴士将提供令人惊叹的戏剧性天际线景观,周围环绕着壮丽的山峰。在猴子溪Monkey Creek)停留,品尝一些世界上最纯净的水(但要注意厚脸皮的kea – 原生山鹦鹉!)。在山下穿过荷马隧道,一条长1.2公里的通道钻成坚固的岩石,然后体验The Chasm,这是一条短暂但令人印象深刻的人行桥,跨越一系列强大的漩涡瀑布和急流。

在米尔福德峡湾,我们登上游轮,开始探索Rudyard Kipling称之为“世界第八大奇迹”的地区。沿着峡湾的长度前往塔斯曼海(Tasman Sea),滑过冰川疤痕的岩壁和落入大海的瀑布。郁郁葱葱的原始森林紧贴着陡峭的悬崖,而野生动物则包括海豹,企鹅和海豚是冰冷水域的常客。山脉环绕着峡湾,包括斜坡,从深处急剧上升到海拔1,692米的高度。

我们将通过乘坐米尔福德峡湾最新,最豪华的游轮而对米尔德弗德峡谷进行全方位游览。这个令人印象深刻的三层双体船拥有广阔的户外甲板,因此我们可以近距离接触大自然。在里面我们会

找到舒适的座位以及独特的玻璃屋顶和高清屏幕投射现场户外镜头,所以我们不会错过任何一件事。我们的旅游团将提供包含新鲜当地食材在内的美味自助午餐

Tuesday 21st August

Day 4)        We hop on to a luxury coach to Milford Sound, New Zealand’s most famous tourist destination. You’ll experience the world-famous fiord in all its natural glory – surrounded by dense rainforest, glacier-carved valleys and beautiful waterfalls.

Leaving Queenstown we travel along the shores of Lake Wakatipu and into southern farmland to Lake Te Anau, the largest lake in the South Island. After a morning tea stop we travel along the lake and into Fiordland National Park. Enter the picturesque Eglinton Valley, a place of ancient alpine forest and gushing waterfalls and one of only a few road-accessible glacier valleys in New Zealand, and take advantage of the photo opportunities on offer along the Milford Road, like the stunning Mirror Lakes, where on a calm day the surrounding mountain ranges are perfectly reflected in the still waters, and Knobs Flat, where glaciers have carved their mark on the terrain.

Our glass-roof coach will provide amazing views of the dramatic skyline as we cross the Main Divide of the Southern Alps, with stunning mountain peaks all around. Stop at Monkey Creek and sample some of the purest water in the world (but watch out for cheeky kea – native mountain parrots!). Travel under the mountains through the Homer Tunnel, a 1.2km passageway drilled into solid rock, then experience The Chasm, a short but impressive walk over footbridges spanning a series of powerful, swirling waterfalls and rapids.

At Milford Sound, we board our cruise and set off to explore the region that Rudyard Kipling called the ‘eighth wonder of the world’. Travel the length of the fiord and out to the Tasman Sea, gliding past glacier-scarred rock walls and waterfalls that tumble into the sea. Lush native forest clings to steep cliffs, while wildlife including seals, penguins

and dolphins are regular visitors to the icy waters. Mountain ranges surround the fiord, including Mitre Peak which rises dramatically from the depths to a height of 1,692 metres above sea level.

Our cruise will take place on the newest and most luxurious cruise ship in Milford Sound. This impressive three-level catamaran has extensive outdoor decks so we can get up close to nature. Inside we’ll find comfortable seating as well as unique glass roofs and HD screens projecting live outdoor footage, so we won’t miss a thing. A gourmet buffet lunch featuring fresh local ingredients will be served on board & is included in our tour.

Day 6  8月23日,全日游览新西兰最高峰- 库克山-

8月23日星期四  第六天, 我们再次乘上我们专属的旅行客车,早点后往北走到库克山,穿过麦肯齐盆地的林迪斯山口,你可以看到这最令人喜欢的草丛山。关闭Twizel的高速公路,我们沿着壮观的普卡基湖(Lake Pukaki)和令人难以置信的湛蓝海水一起旅行。当太阳照射到湖面时,它会反射出冰川颗粒,将其转变为亮蓝色。壮丽的湖泊,周围的山峰和开阔的天空的结合是摄影师的梦想。

如果在弗兰兹 – 约瑟夫冰河直升机飞行是由于取消了天气,你必须珍惜在这里库克山的另一个机会-与库克山来一次一生经历一次近距离观赏!- 高山Vista的这次飞行还包括在snowfor照片即会停止让所有人都羡慕回家!

我们将在库克山村美丽的冬宫酒店共进午餐,然后返回皇后镇,参观Garden Court Suites酒店的最后一晚。这将是一个相当漫长的一天在路上,但值得花时间去看澳大拉西亚最高的山峰和这个令人难以置信的地区无与伦比的美丽。

Thursday 23rd August

Day 6     We board our private coach again nice & early & drive north to Mt Cook, travelling through Lindis Pass in the Mackenzie Basin – one of our favourite drives with tussock hills as far as you can see. Turning off the highway at Twizel we travel alongside the spectacular Lake Pukaki with its incredible blue waters. When the sun hits the surface of the lake, it reflects off glaciel particles transforming it to a brilliant blue. The combination of the magnificent lake, surrounding peaks and wide open skies are a dream for photographers.

If the helicopter flight over Franz Josef Glacier was cancelled due to weather, you’ll have another opportunity here at Mt Cook to enjoy this once in a lifetime experience with Mount Cook – Alpine Vista This flight also includes a stop on the snow for photos that will be the envy of everyone back home!

We’ll have lunch at the beautiful Hermitage Hotel in Mt Cook Village before returning to Queenstown for our final night at Garden Court Suites. This will be a fairly long day on the road but well worth the time to see Australasia’s highest mountain & the unparallelled beauty of this incredible region.

Arataki Centre and Kauri Dieback Education Programme

We recently put together a community education presentation about kauri dieback at the Arataki Centre west of Auckland in the Waitakere Ranges. This 16000ha forest park is integral to our guided tours and a wonderful place of historic, cultural and ecological significance. Kauri dieback (Phytophthora agathidicida) is a killer pathogen with a 100% mortality rate amongst our beloved kauri tress, and stopping its spread in our favorite forest park is paramount to our ecological sustainability as a tour operator in this area.

The beauty of sharing & why we do what we do…

Our back yard is truly a beautiful place but we tend to forget that fact over time (understandably), because it’s what we see on a daily basis. This was brought back to me recently when guiding a single client (something we don’t often do) from America who was in a bit of a personal pickle & needed to get away from the city to clear her mind & settle her emotions from family pressures.

It was my luck too that I was about ready for a break from the office so perhaps this was just a match made in heaven for that day! Off the two of us went bright & early & I’m quite sure she had no idea at all of what to expect from her day tour – websites, including our own, just cannot adequately describe what kind of experience a customer will have when travelling around our gorgeous country!

Small tour groups always equal more time to stop & ‘smell the roses’ – larger groups are always slower so there’s less time to do stuff, so in light of that I made an unscheduled stop at Corwallis Wharf on our way out west. Midweek, sunny day, two people fishing on the end of the wharf, otherwise deserted, she couldn’t have asked for better!

The charm of Blue Spring – light, shade and color
by WCT@WP | Feb 7, 2018 | Blog

With temperatures in Auckland yesterday close to 32oc, we popped down for a quick walk along Blue Spring. Baking heat, cool shadows, hot Summer sweating but we were happy! It’s been a long time!

The serene tranquility of this place is stunning – a constantly changing kaleidoscope of aquatic blues and greens in the cool spring waters flanked by the riverine forest undergrowth, cool, inviting, thirst quenching, ever changing light and shadow, punctuated by small rapids tumbling over black rocks in deep shadow.

Well worth the walk for both young and old!

 昨日,奥克兰的户外气温因该不低于32度!走在酷酷的阳光下,汗淋淋,却痛快着!炎热夏天汗流浃背的感觉,真的久违了!

 天空中恍恍的日光,丝丝的白云,与地面上缓缓而流的美轮美奂的蓝泉流水相呼应,令人仿佛行走在一个流动的画廊。。。。。心如明镜,兴意阑珊,不断地被变幻流动的色彩光影所打动!

 蓝泉蓝泉,今日应称绿泉可能更合适!但无论如何称呼,她带给人的都是自由与奔放,宁静与致远。美得让人想亲近,想释放,想自由地呼吸!

随着阳光的时隐时现,蓝泉溪流的色彩与光影也不断地变化着。

蓝泉溪水也不是永远平静如丝,也有汹涌起伏之时!轰鸣声也传到很远处!

蓝泉的美丽,引来不少上男少女的冲动,禁不住要跳进溪流里释放欢喜。虽然路口的标识牌上明确禁止在溪流里游泳。大概就像上帝明确规定不能食禁果,但是亚当与夏娃还是经不住诱惑一样!

整个蓝泉步道,很平缓,适合一家老少一起游。

投入大自然的怀抱,终是人类最好的归宿!
