We were again blown away with the amazing pictures our adventurers submitted...

Starting with Alexandra, who has joined the Ultimate South in November 2015:

This picture shows a creek near the Ballroom Overhang in Paparoa National Park, where the group has set up their camp. The different shades of green make the scenery just magical.

Together with his group, John enjoyed 3 full days in the Fiordland National Park. The weather was probably not as good as expected but didn't influence the impressive views.


Limo Song Ultimate North Oturere hut Dec 27th 2015.1

Limo, who explored the North island on our Ulitmate North, has amazed us with capturing a breathtaking sunset from the Oturere Hut in the Tongariro National Park in December 2015. 

Nonetheless, Natalia Shulman, who did the whole Ultimate New Zealand, has set the standards really high. Two of her pictures were on in the Top 3 picked by each member of the Hiking New Zealand team:

Natalia's magical shot of Mt Cook got us all excited and jealous in the office. That is why Natalia won the NZ$100 Amazon voucher, well deserved!

And of course thank you to all the other stunning entries, we can't wait for the January drawing.
