Of kings and trolls and other things…

In August/September 2014, Lesley Haines and Rick Wells joined a bunch of Skippy-eating Aussies for four weeks north of the Arctic Circle. Join them as they revisit the glaciers, saunas, berry fields, and spectacular auroras of Sweden's Kungsleden (King's Highway), and the craggy, wet and wild wonders of Norway's Lofoten archipelago.

The Old Ghost Road in winter;the Waiokotore “Biv” in summer

The project to convert a long-forgotten gold miners' road into an 85km mountain biking and tramping trail from Lyell in the Upper Buller Gorge to the Mohikinui River is nearing completion. Janette Roberts tramped the Old Ghost Road in perfect weather last winter. In January, Janette led a trip along the Ohutu Ridge to Waiokotore Bivouac (“the Biv that isn't”), in the seldom-visited north-west corner of the Ruahines.

19 May Joan Wiffen, Dinosaur Lady

Joan Wiffen, Dinosaur Lady

In 1975, during a dig in the Maungahouanga Valley in northern Hawkes Bay, self-taught fossil hunter Joan Wiffen made the first recorded discovery of a dinosaur bone in New Zealand, the tailbone of a theropod dinosaur. She went on to find bones from other species of dinosaur and achieved international recognition of her work. John Simes of the Department of Paleontology at GNS Science discusses her legacy.

26 May How to really enjoy winter

How to really enjoy winter

Join the Club’s winter sports enthusiasts for a glass of gluhwein, then sit back and hear how the Club can help you to plan and enjoy some great adventures in the snow this winter. The Club’s Tararua Lodge on Mt Ruapehu is an excellent base for skiing, snow boarding and climbing and our ski and alpine instruction programme is about to get underway. There will be a final opportunity to sign up for these courses. Please note the earlier start time of 7.30pm and $4 entry charge.

Rees Dart

The Rees-Dart Track

The 4-5 day Rees-Dart tramping circuit in Mount Aspiring National Park features the Dart Glacier, glacier-fed rivers, and stunning mountain scenery, but the weather nearly stopped Lyn Taylor’s party in their tracks during their trip in December 2013/January 2014.

Ben Nevis and the Western Isles of Scotland

the Western Isles of Scotland

In July 2014, Mary Kane and Peter Barber, with their son Felix, climbed Ben Nevis and did some day trips on the Isles of Lewis, Harris, and Skye.

23 June The Fox Glacier on skis

The Fox Glacier on skis

In September 2014, Dave Grainger, Rob Hawes and Daniel Rogerson explored the Fox Glacier on skis. With 40 square kilometres of ungroomed snow and no chairlifts, this is a ski field for big thinkers. After one particularly taxing day, a ski turned on its owner!

30 June Cycling in South-East Asia

Cycling in South-East Asia

Last year John Hill did a six week trip through Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos, visiting Angkor Wat, the Mekong Delta, Saigon, Hanoi, Ha Long Bay and Luang Prabang, and travelling through plenty of countryside in between.
