My 2018 Masterclass workshop to the South Island of New Zealand next month is now sold out. This will be the last year that I offer this workshop for the foreseeable future. As much as I love New Zealand and its ‘middle-earth’ landscapes I will instead be focusing my efforts from 2019 forward on Tasmania and certain carefully chosen locations with Australia (on top of my usual Polar expeditions). The Australian offerings are going to be few and will fit between my Polar trips where possible. To those of you who have asked in recent months about a future New Zealand trip the short answer is ‘yes’ – but not in 2019 , or 2020.
