New Zealand’s best kept secret is out! Winter is truly a spectacular time to visit New Zealand! More and more people are visiting New Zealand in winter time to experience its breath taking alpine scenery, snow-capped mountains and pristine lakes. Experience a Kiwi winter wonderland with this 12 day New Zealand tour from favourite destinations such as Rotorua, Tongariro, Abel Tasman, Mount Cook National Park and Milford Sound to a few new favourites in winter such as renowned Thermal Hot Pool and Spas of Hanmer Springs and the world class alpine village of Queenstown! A New Zealand winter is from June - August.
Just like me you'll love the amazing alpine scenery that is truly breath taking in winter. My favourite experiences of the tour are seeing the geothermal areas come alive in winter, and then relaxing in one of New Zealand's soothing thermal pools and mud pools. You can't go past star gazing at Mt Cook in winter, A glacier landing on the Tasman Glacier or even a ski in Queenstown! New Zealand's winter is so mild too, depending on what time of year you travel you can get beautiful autumn colours in March - May or snow-capped mountains in the heart of winter June - August, which makes for amazing photos to take home to your friends!
