JUST PLAIN CRAZY!


Activities don’t stop due to weather. New Zealanders often use the phrase “four seasons in a day”. Changing weather dictates their attire. Put on a raincoat, a sweater, take off the coat and put on a fleece, Wear wool socks or flip flops. Whatever the day might bring they adapt.

Fifteen commercial ski areas and a choice of heli-operations, New Zealand has skiing and boarding experiences for everyone. The season runs June to early November. This is where the US Olympic ski team goes to practice. The views are amazing, facilities are world class and terrain that runs from tame to extreme.

Mountiain Biking

If your fitness level is as high as the terrain, you are in for an amazing mountain biking experience. You’ll see waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, massive river valleys and glorious scenery! That is if you can take your eyes off the track in front of you.

The Copland Track that runs from the west coast of the south island to Mt Cook via the Copland Pass. To journey to the natural hot pools at Welcome Flat and back, you will need a full day. The alpine region of the track requires climbing equipment

The Routeburn Track is one of New Zealand’s “Great Walks”. It traverses 32km between the head of Lake Wakatipu and Milford Sound. A half day of hiking will bring you to a place called Key Summit. This is where the peaks of Mt Aspiring National park surround an alpine meadow.

A visit to White Island is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Accessed by launch or helicopter, you’ll feel the heat, smell the sulphur and see the results of continuous volcanic action. Hear the high pressure hiss of escaping steam. It is even possible to walk right into the main crater!
