Season Update – Franz Josef Tours

Season Update – Franz Josef Tours

by | Aug 27, 2015

Winter’s going to be over before we know it!  It’s just flown by this year … and has been busier than other previous winters on the Coast.  We’ve had some unusually wet weather this winter, but we’ve managed to make the most of the fine days and have had some beautiful kayak trips out lately!  Read on to see some of the recent (epic!) trip photos!


Today is Daffodil Day, and the township is now decorated with beautiful yellow daffodils.  They’re also fundraising by the Four Square, so make sure you get out and support the Cancer Society!  Here’s a shot of Tui sporting a couple of Daffodils from the bouquet on my desk:


The mornings trips have been amazing lately!  We’ve just been flooded with some awesome photos and we’d love to share more with you, but here’s a few for you to check out:

This is the same two people, and these photos were only taken a couple minutes apart.  Starting off in the mist … and then it clears perfectly unveiling our amazing view!

Kiwis For Kiwi Tomorrow at 11 am:

Tomorrow morning the Te Waonui Forest Retreat is running a fundraiser for the Rowi (our local kiwi population).  This run is raising money for the conservation effort to keep our Kiwi Population growing!  The walk starts at 11 am and is 2.3 km, and the 4.6 km run starts at 12 pm!  Dress in your wet-weathers and come on out for some exercise!

$10 entry and a sausage sizzle afterwards 🙂

Until next week ….
