tales of adventure

what's an adventure without a story?

An accident at the start of 2020 turned out to be a good thing… Thanks to a fridge door I was sidelined for all of 2020 and what seemed like a death sentence turned into NzHikes.co.nz! If I have been forced to sit around, then I’m not going to sit around and do nothing!! One story became 20… 50… and now over 300 tales from the mountains of New Zealand and around the world…. 

Any Questions?? Lets chat about the wilderness...

NzHikes loves the Wilderness!
