Day 1Christchurch to MethvenD

Our first day of tour kicks off at 4:30pm where we pickup from inner city Christchurch or the airport before getting underway on the short journey to our exclusive accommodation in the heart of Methven Mt Hutt Village.

Today is all about getting there, settling in, getting to know one another and enjoying a few laughs and a good sleep in our classic kiwi country villa in preparation for the day ahead when we hit the slopes of New Zealand’s best Ski Resort, Mt Hutt!

Meals: Dinner
Drive Distance: 1.5 hours

Day 2Methven to Lake TekapoB, D

Rise and shine! Today’s the day to dust off your ski gear and hit the slopes. First enjoy a good hearty cooked breakfast then grab your ski bag and prepare to spend the day on the ski field. Even if you aren’t skiing this field offers breath-taking views along the Southern Alps and across the Canterbury Plains to the Pacific Ocean.

Leaving the mountain at 3pm we make our way to the scenic lakeside township of Lake Tekapo. Next door to our perfectly located accommodation is the winter wonderland of Tekapo Springs where their Hot Pools are the perfect way to end our day. Relax, enjoy and take in the stunning night sky this magical part of the country offers. In fact, this area is so excellent for star gazing that it was named the world’s largest International Dark Sky Reserve, meaning the skies are almost completely free from any light pollution, making it one of the best places in the world for stargazing!

Meals: Breakfast and Dinner
Drive Distance: 2.5 Hours

Day 3Lake Tekapo to Mt CookB, D

If the weather has played the game you may have already spotted Aoraki/Mt Cook in the distance but today, we take you up close and personal to New Zealand’s highest peak.

On arrival into Mt Cook village our first port of call is the world-class Information Centre where you can learn about the mountain and its brave mountaineers while exploring the artwork collection and interactive exhibits.

Now it’s time to get amongst it, we have some great walks to choose from with our personal favorite being the Hooker Valley Track. With plenty of photo opportunities this popular walk leads up the Hooker Valley towards Mount Cook.

Our lodge accommodation tonight offers stunning mountain views while we relax in front of a cosy fire, perfect for reflecting on the day or perhaps a chance to become the supreme board game champion for those that are up to it!

Meals: Breakfast and Dinner
Drive Distance: 1.5 Hours

Day 4Mt Cook to OahuB, D
