Hitting the slopes during the day and hitting the bar at night – say Kia Ora to New Zealand ski holidays. A country that’s known for its breath-taking scenery and outdoor adventure, New Zealand winter holidays really pack a punch. With the best destinations for a truly epic winter getaway, you’re pretty much guaranteed an unforgettable experience on our Winter & Ski trips in NZ.
Skiing enthusiasts, head straight to the Kiwi Southern Alps of the South Island, where most of the New Zealand ski resorts call home. The best part? Your trip down the mountain comes complete with stunning scenic backdrops. Zip down slopes with views of beautiful lakes, golden plains and dense New Zealand forest.
For some of the best skiing in New Zealand, head down to Queenstown. Whether you’re a pro or a total amateur, the terrain here is perfect for all abilities. With three different ski fields to choose from, it’s impossible to get bored here.
Because we believe your holiday should come with all the bells and whistles, your trip comes complete with Contiki’s signature No Regrets inclusions. In Queenstown, that means a 4-day ski lift pass, PLUS a transfer to and from the slopes. Easy as.
And don’t forget about the Après-ski. Queenstown is home to some of the country’s best nightlife, and with your new-found Contiki fam, you’re sure to get up to a few antics. We’ll start our trip as we intend to continue: we’ll hit the slopes during the day, then hit the bars at night, day in, day out.
While the skiing and the snowboarding are definitely the main attractions, make the most of Queenstown’s outdoor adventure offerings. Spend a day skydiving, bungee-jumping or white-water rafting in this awesome spot – just remember to rug up in waterproof gear.
With its amazing scenery, perfect powder and endless antics, join us on the New Zealand winter holiday of a lifetime.
