Logan Park is committed to providing a range of outdoor experience opportunities for international students, with two activities per term. A sample of possible activities is outlined below:
A three day trip to Lake Tekapo in the high country of Canterbury. Fun activities include skating, hot pools and tubing. Weather permitting, we can walk in to view New Zealand’s highest mountain, Mt Cook/Aoraki, across swing bridges and raging rivers through spectacular scenery.
Overnight trip to Moeraki, famous for the round boulders on the beach. There are great beach walks, and an evening visit to view the seals and rare yellow eyed penguins in their natural habitat.
Skiing and Snowboarding There are several ski fields within easy reach of Dunedin with excellent facilities. Lessons are provided for everyone. Accommodation is in cabins in a holiday park or in a lodge.
Long Tramp in Fiordland A 5 day tramp in November into the mountains in the headwaters of Lake Wakatipu. It involves a round trip up the Caples River, a bit of a climb over McKellor Saddle, and then back down the Greenstone River.
Kayaking and Cycling at Mavora Lakes The Mavora Lakes, near Te Anau, are surrounded by spectacular mountains. We will camp next to the northern lake, then explore both lakes in double sea-kayaks (training is provided). Short tramps and cycling are included in this adventure.
Bush and beach adventures in the Catlins From our base at a lodge near Tautuku Beach we enjoy bush walks, games, an overnight camp at the beach, a rather ‘muddy’ time and trips further afield to see waterfalls, sea lions and other natural wonders.
