What's New at Touch of Spice this Month

Posted By on

Queenstown, New Zealand is the place to be this Spring.

Mt Hutt

Mt Hutt has an upper mountain base of 310cm of snow, Coronet Peak attracts 1000 - 4500 people daily, The Remarkables continues to attract 900 - 2500 people daily and in Wanaka both Treble Cone and Cardrona are going off!

It has been a busy few weeks with school holidays and August is shaping up to be even busier with a lot of full houses and people continuing to come to town to enjoy the ski season.

We have consistently enjoyed eating out at our Queenstown favourites Botswana Butchery, La Rumbla, Saffron and Amisfield.  Our guests have also been raving about Rata and Sasso.

When the snow hasn`t been that great we have been booking our guests on heli flights to Milford Sound with Over the Top Helicopters,  jet boat rides with Shotover Jet & Kawarau Jet and quad biking with Off Road Adventures.  The one thing about Queenstown is that there is so much to see and do even when you are not skiing!

Amber & Tania our two Business Development Managers enjoyed a famil at Mountain Landing - now called "The Landing" in the Bay of Islands last week and were blown away by the new Cooper Residence.  We have a special deal for the Boat House at The Landing, valid for Spring 2013 only -  click here for more information.

We also welcome back Hurakia Lodge on Rakino Island this month.  Perfect for a weekend getaway or a Corporate Retreat and accessible by boat and helicopter.
