DAY 1 Manapouri to Snow White Clearings

The adventure begins in Manapouri township, where we meet our helicopter to fly us through the rugged terrain up to the top of Mt. Titiroa. Mt Titiroa has been named number 1 of the 7 Wonders of New Zealand by Wilderness Magazine, and you will see why when we land. An incredible journey begins from the White Peak down through unmarked tracks to the Snow White Clearings. We will travel through woodland, over small natural springs and arrive in late afternoon at our campsite for the night. After lunch we drop back down again through low level woodland and over small natural springs until we arrive at our camp site situated in the Snow White Clearings. Camp is set up next to the tranquil river where there is the opportunity to go for a walk upstream spotting wildlife such as deer and the rare Blue Ducks or to relax, swim or bathe in the river before enjoying a traditional kiwi bush tucker feed and camp fire marshmallows.

DAY 2 Snow White Clearings to Hope Arm

We rise with the birds to make the most of the day ahead and have a hearty cooked breakfast before starting our walk through the untouched wilderness of the native bush. We break out of the bush some time later and arrive at a magical lunch spot affording views out over the surrounding peaks and valleys. After lunch we dive back into the bush to explore the rest of the fauna & flora before getting back to where the boat picks us up and takes us for a stunning scenic cruise across Lake Manapouri before dropping us off at an idyllic cove called Hope Arm in Fiordland National Park.
