We’re passionate about Fiordland, and love to get out and explore it whenever we get the chance. Having a young son means that we are enjoying a slightly slower pace of life these days, but we’re looking forward to being able to get out and do more hiking, mountain biking and skiing / snowboarding as a family. Glen is an Ecologist, and runs the takahē programme here in Te Anau. He has a wealth of knowledge on New Zealand's plants and wildlife, and can help answer any questions that you may have. I (Susanna) grew up in England, and travelled extensively until I found Te Anau in 2012, which I instantly fell in love with and deemed to be ‘the most beautiful part of the most beautiful country in the world’. I’ve held many tourism-focussed positions since moving here, including a season sharing my knowledge of Fiordland with visitors at the Fiordland National Park Visitor Centre, and two years managing Fiordland Cinema (a definite ‘must see’!). I’ve also spent many years in voluntary community committees, organising internationally-renowned events such as as the ‘Kepler Challenge’, and the ‘Te Anau Tennis Invitational’. I’m now extremely grateful to be able to spend every waking moment with our young son, and to help guests to enjoy our little piece of paradise.
