Between hospital shifts, Dr Wiktoria and her partner filled their weekends with adventures around Southland. Her first alpining experience was a guided mountaineering tour at Single Cone, where their love for snowy peaks first began. One of her most memorable trips was summitting Pikirakatahi, Mount Earnslaw – a five day adventure starting in Rees Valley, where they only met one other person. Her advice to anyone that wants to start mountaineering is to join the NZ Alpine Club and join in on organised trips. Wiktoria also shares about how recent adventures have changed since having a baby and the different approach they have with trips like the Tongariro Crossing.
