And thence we came forth to see again the stars…

07 November 2016 – 335,5 km

And when you wake up in the morning and you see the sun after the heavy rain, your day could be only a great one!!!

An easy walk of about 2,5 km to arrive directly at 750m from the Franz Josef Glacier… Amazing!!!

The road to the Fox Glacier Town is really beautiful and we drove directly to the lake Matheson to see the reflection of the Mount Cook. You can see the amount Cook while you are driving!!!

And now we are deep in the rainforest and then the sea, at Bruce Bay. Tasman sea, the ocean with big breakers.

Then again rainforest, until lake Paringa, a breathtaking lake where people fish the Whitebait. The season last only 2,5 month, until the 14 of November. So we are lucky and the whitebaits really delicious!!!

After Haast, we will start a winding road to theHaast Pass (a little more than 500m height) to arrive in the Lake District!
