Ulva Island half-day trip with Furhana was great. She is so knowledgeable and informative, and we would have got far less out of the trip with a less able guide or on our own. If we manage to return to Stewart Island, we'll be hoping to take a longer trip with Ruggedy Range.

We went on a full day guided tour to Ulva Island with Furhana, who proofed to be an excellent and professional guide. Great information about flora, fauna, the local life and environmental issues.

Until you have seen a kiwi, close up, you may not realise what is so special about this particular bird - and if you would like to see one, Furhana, the owner/operator of Ruggedy Range Wilderness Experience has to be the best guide. We would certainly visit again and would recommend Ruggedy Range to others. Thank you Furhana!

The guide (Furhana) knew so much, it was highly informative and the Ulva Island is a wonderful place for bird watching.

We had a wonderful day trip to Ulva Island, and fortunately it was in the beginning of our 3 months holiday in NZ! The knowledge we received from Furhana about native and endemic birds and plants was formidable and was of great use for the rest of our holiday. It was a wonderful experience.
