Hello travel lovers…hope everyone is having a great week…I had an awesome week again last week…as always…hehe
Doing what I love the most when I’m free…take a little moment to have “ME” time…apa lagiiii…pampering myself with the beauty of nature…my kinda place to get a peaceful mind…
Tramping is what New Zealanders called it…Hiking/trekking whatever you wanna call it…one of the top activities people here love to do…of course la….New Zealand is heaven for that…the view is beyond words…
Outdoor lovers….adventure people…muddy and dirt…crossing rivers, swamp, waterfalls…walking in the bushes…climbing up the hills or mountains…you surely wanna read more here…this week is for US!!!! Hehe
Cheap activities but you get priceless experience…you'll definitely won’t regret every moment of it cause not everybody gets what we…trampers/hikers get to view from up there….best feeling everrrrrr!
Ok…now I wanna share some tips with you guys…Perhaps you're wondering how this woman (me…hehe) started tramping in New Zealand when she knew no one there…hehe…”Sometimes we just need to think outside the box”…cewahhh…ayat poyos a bit there…haha…
If you love meeting new people…don’t mind car pooling with strangers at the beginning, and in the end you'll end up with a bunch of new friends from different parts of the world who love doing the same thing that you do…best kannn??? Then this is for you….kalau malu tak dapek la den nak nolong sayang oiiiii….
Seriously...every trip I only spent around $10-$15 with them...
Most of the groups are very active and every week surely there’s something for you.
This is what I did…I joined them!
MEET UP APPS…
Since I like Hiking/tramping and I live in Auckland, I joined Auckland hiking group… Actually I joined a few others too but this posting is about hiking/tramping so I will share a few group names and how you can take the opportunity to have a wonderful time of your life here in New Zealand. Even if you just come for holiday you can grab this chance….ada je some people that I met who came for holiday and join us…
Have you heard of “MEET UP” APPS? You can register and install in your phone…zaman canggih already people…make use of the technology that we have…hehe
Second step once you join the Meetup…
Why I joined so many groups…reasons:
Other points to take note…
Another option…basically every main city will have their own tramping club… memang you pilih je lah mana nak pegi…they always open for the public to join….Kiwis love to share their nature beauty with people…here are some tramping club websites you can follow…there are more actually

I have shared with you about creating your “Golden Autumn Journey” right??? Apa lagiiii… Autumn is just around the corner… pack your bag darling… haha
Well… enough mumbling Dira… next topic pleasee (talking to myself… to control not to overly write of unnecessary things…haha) Since the great deal is for Autumn/Winter… it's the best time for me to share with you about Winter Wonders in New Zealand that will surprise you…
You probably wonder what great activities to do in super cold weather when you would rather stay at home and don’t even want to get out of your warm blanket… Yep, that was pretty much my train of thought too… hahaha… but let me share something that might change your mind and willing to put your thick winter jacket… hit the road to see the magical view of white snow capped or snow covered mountains as your “Selfie” pictures background… Time to change to new profile picture guys (I can feel you)…hehe
Here is a quick overview of why you should travel to New Zealand in white winter season…
Tips: I would suggest North Island Road Trip in winter cause in South Island some of the best tourist spots and roads will be closed due to bad weather condition and you might end up disappointed when you can’t enter certain places… Plus the temperature in North Island is not too cold compared to South Island.
Does it snow in New Zealand?
Well…don't expect the ground to be continuously blanketed by snow. Mostly you can see snow when you take the scenic drive up to Mount Ruapehu and Mount Taranaki in the North Island. While in the South Island mountains are all snow covered.
Winter here starts in June until August… Best things about this season:
Save some cash - Accommodation will be cheaper and you could probably get good airfares deal since less people travelling… you can stay longer and do more with the extra cash you save right..hehe… another plus point when you are in NZ; lots of free outdoor activities that will promise stunning views…
Skiing and Snow boarding - drive up to Mount Ruapehu to get your snow falling experience (Beginners like me…for sure jatuh tergolek lerrrr…haha)…”Do you wanna build a snowww mannn… ”hehe..feeling abis!! Whoever wants to play with snow, Whakapapa Ski Field or Turoa Ski Field in Mount Ruapehu need to be in your list. If you're a skier, you'll be heading to Queenstown, Mount Hutt, Canterbury in the South Island, or the Central Plateau in the North Island - and paying top dollar for the privilege and have fun!!!!
Hot Pools - what could be better than finding your hot tub in the middle of the forest? Ladiessss… this is to die for… confirmmm you want to experience this… soak yourself in the hot springs while enjoying the nature beauty right in front of you… gilerrr best hokey!!! It goes without saying that the hot springs are best enjoyed in the winter, when the chilly air causes steam to rise visibly in the air, tempting even the most stubbornly terrestrial among us.
Winter adventure - avoid busy summer trails and explore it during winter with less people around...·
Tips: Please remember daylight hours are less in winter…so you need to carefully plan your journey…Review back your gear…what clothes to wear especially when you head up the mountains or outdoor activities.
Contact Ikhlas Tours to help you create your holiday journey to be a memorable one…
Till then…have a great week ahead travel lovers…talk to you soon!
