In Te Anau – and floating to the end

I’ve made it to Te Anau today after a bloody brilliant february, with countless stunning kilometers, some harsh off-track travel, fantastic paddling on braided rivers, sunsets from forgotten summits, and probably even being the first to cross the youngest lake on earth (the 4km Dart Lake which formed in mid-january)! It has been the best bit of the trip, and I hope I can share some of it with the pictures below.

As I have some time left, I’ll probably have a blast on the Kepler Track the next 2 days before paddling down the Waiau River to the Ocean – some rainy Fiordland weather is on the menu however so I’ll have to keep a close eye on the river flow.
