Life Renewal in New Zealand

Feb 19 – March 4, 2011

Spacious landscapes, warm culture

The south island of New Zealand is a mecca for any woman who loves the outdoors. Our trip will combine the playful exploration of the natural beauty of New Zealand with time for reflection, stillness, and enjoying each other’s company. Travelling as a group, we will stay in private vacation homes and New Zealand’s extensive backcountry hut system. We will sample a wide variety of all that the South Island has to offer, with mountain and coastal hikes, sea kayaking, sailing, and excursions to the wild and inspirational spots of this amazing country.

  • Hiking the Routeburn track- known as one of the world’s greatest walks. Four days of high alpine wilderness in the Fiordland and Mt. Aspiring National Parks, with comfortable huts each night.
  • Sea kayaking and swimming off the golden sand beaches of Abel Tasman National Park.
  • A day of sailing along the northern coast of the South Island.
  • Structured activities, discussions, and open time for personal reflection.
  • Accomodation in comfortable vacation homes.
  • Healthy, delicious food and our own personal chef!
