Welcome to Airway Spies. We're a kiwi couple from Christchurch with a penchant for tramping, climbing, traveling and really good pies. After each of our trips we post notes on how to recreate our journeys, highly exaggerated accounts of our navigation brilliance and a plethora of instagram suitable snaps to help you plan your own expedition. Whether you're a seasoned weekend warrior or heading out on your first over-nighter we hope you'll find some inspiration and all the information you need for your own epic adventure. If you have any questions about locations we may have traveled to or how to survive in the New Zealand wilderness, feel free to email us or leave a comment on a particular blog post.
