Last-Minute Adventures For The Easter Long Weekend

By the Wild Women On Top Team

If you haven’t yet got a fabulous adventure planned for the Easter long weekend, fret not. It might be too late to organise hiking around Auckland or surfing in Indonesia, but it’s not too late to explore the gorgeous wilderness that’s right on your doorstep.

Here are our top picks for your long weekend adventures…

Ama Dablam 50!
We often hear that women feel invisible after fifty, but I refuse to accept that my worth has a “use-by” date. I know I’ve got many more fabulous years ahead to serve, to laugh, to love, to climb, to bike, to hike, to travel and to explore this magnificent earth.

And not just hike. Hike through glacial streams. I’m also going diving (diving!) in ice-melt water. Ouch. Why? Well, it all started with a broken shower.
