If you’re looking for a spectacular winter adventure without all of the crowds then you’ve found your trip! During the winter, New Zealand’s South Island transforms into a white wonderland of snow, ice, blue sky days and mountain views that will simply take your breath away. From cosy lodges, roaring fires, hearty meals and of course snow, this South Island Winter Adventure has been designed to showcase the very best of NZ's winter activities. Ski instructors, and experienced alpine guides make this trip perfect for first timers as well as the more experienced adventure seeker. Starting from Queenstown, we take you on an incredible journey to an exclusive cross-country resort, the uncrowded slopes of Ohau Snow Fields and to the base of the mighty Aoraki/Mt Cook. We cycle the lakeside trails of the Alps 2 Ocean, recently listed in the Lonely Planet’s 'Epic Bike Rides of World'. Climb to the top of a snowy peak for panoramic views of the Southern Alps and snow shoe along the Two Thumb range. Spend the night in secluded lodges and the remote Rex Simpson Hut, soak in thermal hot pools and an get your heart racing on an exhilarating jet boat ride down the Rakaia Gorge. Like any Adventure South tour, we include everything you need to make this trip stress free so you can relax, unwind and enjoy this amazing winter experience.
To determine the grade of a particular adventure we consider a number of factors. These include the condition of the terrain, the altitude and the length of the trip. Cross country skiing, alpine skiing/snowboarding and snow shoeing all require some physical exertion. However, these are all conducted at your own comfortable pace and ability level. The Alps to Ocean cycle trail is graded moderate. You will need a reasonable level of fitness and we suggest 30 minutes of aerobic type exercise, (either cycling or jogging) three times a week for the three months leading up to your trip. Our cycle rides are all on tarmac or purpose built hard packed trails. You’ll need appropriate outdoor winter clothing and footwear. We supply hybrid mountain bikes and helmets for the cycling sections.
