MALE BONDING AT ITS BEST

breaking through the ice

It’s male bonding at its best, only this is the real thing. An ex elite New Zealand representative triathlete, Ben Logan has led hundreds of Kiwi men into the mountains to find their purpose and discover ways to become the best versions of themselves.

Faced with the toughest crisis of his own life eight years ago, Ben was forced to quit his high-performance athletic training and lifestyle when he suddenly developed epilepsy and frequent seizures.

It was a life defining moment, but out of his battle Ben, now seizure free for five years, rediscovered himself and his inner man, heading to the mountains for a challenge of a different kind – to heal the emotional scars of a difficult childhood.

Explore

Mt Beetham

Tobins Track is a popular and favourite track among Arrowtown locals, but if you’re looking to shake things up and add in some intense cardio then take things a little further and tack Mt Beetham onto your next trek. This will get your heart pumping but the views are definitely worth it. 


with Shaun Vining

While sitting here in Auckland, (after literally fighting through traffic this morning) I’m reminded of how we have changed in Queenstown in the last 20 years. 

I’ve spent more than half my life in Queenstown and have LOVED this town. From living in Arrowtown, to Fernhill and Queenstown Hill, to Lake Hayes Estate and every place in between. Throughout this whole time three things have NOT changed.
