travelers stories about Paragliding in Queenstown, New Zealand

Paragliding in Queenstown, New Zealand

On my trip through New Zealand I met one guy how also comes from Germany and slept in the same ski lodge. He offers us to give us a free paragliding flight if we will drive his car down in the valley. Guys this was just awesome! We get to free paragliding flights (it was the first time for me) and it was just perfect. :)

travelers stories about Waterway in Queenstown, New Zealand

Waterway in Queenstown, New Zealand

Truth be told, I didn’t even realise there were people in the image until I looked at it a few weeks later. It was a winter’s day in Queenstown and I was out for a walk while taking a break from the tours I guide. I always have my camera with me and the fall colours were out - a rare sight for a North Islander in New Zealand.

travelers stories about Forest in Queenstown Hill Walking Track, New Zealand

Forest in Queenstown Hill Walking Track, New Zealand

We decided to go for a hike up the infamous Queenstown Hill Summit walk. It wasn’t easy for us beginners, but we kept on. We came to a fork in the track. The sign to the left “5 minute track” and the sign to the right “20 minute walk”. We decided to take the longer route which lead us to this dark looking forest where the sun light was kept away by the tall pine trees. We instantly felt mysterious and pulled out our cameras to capture this enchanting (some would say dead and dry) forest.

travelers stories about Mountain range in Dart River-Te Awa Whakatipu, New Zealand

Mountain range in Dart River-Te Awa Whakatipu, New Zealand

  36 km from New Zealand


I shot this from a plane on a scenic flight through Fiordland National Park in New Zealand. It was so amazing to see the patterns of the river from above, observing how it carved its path into the landscape, before feeding Lake Wakatipu at its mouth.

travelers stories about Hill in Roys Peak, New Zealand

Hill in Roys Peak, New Zealand

  48 km from New Zealand


This climb to Roy’s Peak seemed like a great idea when I read the description on New Zealand’s Department of Conservation’s website. “Easy Walk”, they said. After a painstaking 3-hour climb, my feet were practically bleeding and I was quite dehydrated. The only thing I wanted to do was run back down to go back to my hotel—but not before taking some shots of the exquisite view.

Summit in Roys Peak, New Zealand

  48 km from New Zealand


Began my hike up Mt. Roy at 5.40am at temperatures of -2 degrees celsius. The terrain was easy to walk on and the exposed trek gave me full-view of the night sky - I caught five shooting stars in the short 2.5hr hike! The view atop was well-worth the effort and the cold!

Hill in Roys Peak, New Zealand

  48 km from New Zealand


While on an eight month backpacking journey, we stopped by Queenstown, New Zealand to visit a friend in Wanaka. Not knowing this was a miserable six hour hike up to Roy’s Peak, we happily agreed but were met with some of the most humbling views. Worth it in the end!

Mountain in Routeburn Track, New Zealand

Seeing one of New Zealand’s great walks from the air has only made me want to hike it on the ground even more! I can’t imagine what the scale of these mountains must be like from the ground.

Hill station in Earnslaw Glacier, New Zealand

It is amazing that we are able to access the most remote parts of the world so quick and easy. It is like you are on a complete other planet. I had so much adrenaline in my blood and I was amazed by the pure nature during this helicopter flight I took.

Highland in Lake Marian, New Zealand

  54 km from New Zealand


I did this hike to Lake Marian because people told me the reflection of the mountains would be amazing. After 3 hours of walking I arrived and couldn’t see anything because of the clouds… how disappointing! But instead of the beautiful reflection I found this antlers standing on a rock by the lake and I got instantly reminded of my hometown Hirschhorn (translated it means “horn of the deer”). After travelling for 7 months and being away from my home this made me smile and gave me new strengh. I will never regret this hike, because unexpected events are always the best.

travelers stories about Mountain range in Rob Roy's Glacier Car Park, New Zealand

Mountain range in Rob Roy's Glacier Car Park, New Zealand

  61 km from New Zealand


As we climbed through the valley, a white-turquoise river began to appear, it was obvious we were coming to a glacier, however, the real beauty hid beyond the glacier, as the rough mountains spiked through the valley almost like a non-passable gate, we knew we couldn’t go any further. New Zealand is truly amazing.

travelers stories about Stream in Cleddau River, New Zealand

Stream in Cleddau River, New Zealand

  68 km from New Zealand


I had arrived to work on the airport at Milford and even though the sun had set by the time I finished, I raced back to the Cleddau river that I had crossed earlier in the day. Down to a suitable rock to balance the camera (travelling with work, I didn’t have room for my tripod) The lighting was lingering just long enough for me and this is the result.

travelers stories about Hill station in Milford Sound, New Zealand

Hill station in Milford Sound, New Zealand

  70 km from New Zealand


Milford Sound in New Zealand has some of the fastest changing weather in the world. One minute blue skies, the next black clouds with heavy rainfall. We were lucky enough to experience both in a matter of minutes, but what comes with that is some of the most spectacular moving clouds we’ve ever seen. Clouds seamlessly engulf mountains and change your view in seconds. Here I caught midst of a moment where mountain rainforests fade away into the fog.
