For all the snow & ski junkies amongst us - there is no better place to be than Queenstown and the South Island this winter.
Home to some of the most breathtaking mountain scenery in the southern Alps, there are worse places to consider for a spectacular winter break. Enjoy boundless untracked powdered snow in the untouched mountain wilderness. If it is adrenaline you are after, choose from ice climbing, hiking, ice-driving or cat-skiing… or indulge in a private heli-ski experience followed by gourmet lunch, drinks and fun in the snow.
?If you can walk, you can snowshoe. If you can snowshoe, you have to heli. Reach the top of the world only minutes from Queenstown, avoiding the strenuous climb. Surrounded by towering, jagged Southern Alps mountain peaks and hidden winter alpine life, heli-snowshoeing provides you with the freedom to get a persp?ective on nature that you've only ever seen in nature documentaries. After an active afternoon, take a well deserved break with a glass of perfectly chilled bubbles at the top.
Fly by private heli to the stunning Isobel Glacier for a challenging yet insanely rewarding day to remember. Grab your ice axe, don the crampons, get the harness connected and discover the crevasses and ridge with your private guide. Sit back and relax at the top with a glass of Central Otago mulled wine and a gourmet cheese board before flying back to Queenstown.
