Christchurch to Wanaka

Cardrona & Queenstown
Its high elevation and plentiful dry natural snow marks Cardrona as an outstanding ski resort for all levels. There are plenty of wide-open trails spread over three basins and the most extensive terrain park facilities in the Southern Hemisphere. From here we head to Queenstown, the ski and adventure capital of New Zealand!
Coronet Peak, Queenstown
Spectacular roller coaster terrain makes Coronet Peak one of New Zealand's most exciting ski destinations. The field is wide and sunny with an astounding variety of runs, suitable for first time skiers or boarders right up to the most experienced. After spending the day on the slopes, kick back with a beer, drop into a party or devour NZ’s famous burger - the Fergburger.
The Remarkables, Queenstown
The Remarks (as it’s known to the locals) is set in a vast natural amphitheatre with wide open trails, spectacular views, untouched snow, sun-soaked chutes and unforgettable runs. Queenstown's highest ski field, 1943m, The Remarkables is great for first timers to seasoned skiers and snowboarders!
Queenstown to Franz Josef
After a break in picturesque Wanaka, prepare to be dazzled as we travel along rugged coastline beside ancient rainforests, icy glaciers, and crashing waterfalls as we head over Haast Pass, before we arrive at the gateway to glacier country – Franz Josef.
Franz Josef Glacier
Crampons at the ready, Franz Josef could be the most beautiful place you'll ever set your eyes on. Explore the stunning formations made over thousands of years, where you can hike, helicopter - or both! Want something at a lower altitude? Quad bike, kayak or relax in glacier hot pools, before kicking back with a cold drink to soak it all in.
Franz Josef to Christchurch
After a quick stop off at beautiful Hokitika, experience a spectacular journey through Arthur’s Pass amongst the stunning snow-capped Southern Alps. Then it's back to where it all began in Christchurch where our epic journey comes to an end around New Zealand's South Island. Fear not, we’ll say our goodbyes, hug it out and leave with stacks of great memories.
