Te Paki Dunes

The great north also has some more fun to offer than the great beaches and hikes. Two massive sand dunes stand on the west coast. French people are proud of their Dunne du Pilas, which would look like the Alps next to the Himalayas.

Also as they are so massive that one can rent a sledge and find sweet spot for sand boarding and sand sledging. Unfortunately we did not find any board for rent so we went for sledging.

We found a great spot, close to a vertical slope. I cheered up a fellow from US who was hesitating on trying this spot, afterwards he thought it was the scariest stuff he ever did.


Beautifull nature and great fun!
