Stewart Island – North West circuit

New year’s trip to start 2017

So yes we cheated by getting a boat to Christmas Village and getting picked up at Freshwater. This cut about 4 nights off. It still was a very hard but very enjoyable 7 days walking. Lots of mud and some steep slippery banks

Being dropped off at Christmas village bay
Long Harry hut – with its view of setting sun, would have been a great place to see in new year
Masons Bay (still 2 hours from hut) with view of high tide barrier
Boat ride out along Freshwater river
