Waking up on a crisp morning to snow capped mountains overlooking a calm lake is something I could easily get used to. Unfortunately when we arrived at camp we had found out that we were unable to hike Mount Roy due to ‘lambing season’. This absolutely broke my heart as it was a major part of why I wanted to visit the South Island of New Zealand, thankfully we still found a way to reach Coromandel peak. It may not have been the way we originally planned but we made it nonetheless, Thanks to Wanaka Helicopters. This was my first time in a helicopter and safe to say I don’t think it will be the last time.
