The Winter South Island Adventure is well adapted to suit the cooler conditions. Enjoy two incredible multi-day guided backpacking trips to alpine hot pools, glaciers and remote snowfields. Take on some of the best day hikes in the country and head out for unforgettable sea kayaking, or if you prefer, a couple of days of skiing or snowboarding in the mountains surrounding Queenstown. There are plenty of options so the trip suits everyone.

Winter is one of the best times to hike in New Zealand as the tracks are quiet, and with snow-capped mountains, it’s a beautiful time of year to explore. New Zealand’s maritime climate ensures we have mild winters suitable for outdoor pursuits (typical day temperature is about 45-60°F or 8-15°C). 

The accommodations vary – for over half the trip you will stay in accommodations of comfortable standards (B&Bs, lodges, etc.) and for the rest of the trip, more rustic accommodations have been chosen in order to be in the most beautiful places in New Zealand.
