This small, compact group of three elongated islands, stretching 1500km down the southern latitudes of the Pacific Ocean, is home to just over 4 million people. An opportunity to enjoy and participate in the day to day running of a 700 acre working farm, close contact and hand feeding of a variety of farm animals is included on the tour. All while viewing the scenery and experiencing what is truly a unique New Zealand experience.

This will be my first ski trip so what should I wear on the slopes?
For a comfortable, warm and dry day on the ski slopes we recommend you wear waterproof pants and a jacket, a warm hat and waterproof gloves. It is better to wear lots of layers rather than just one big bulky layer, so that if you get hot during the day (all that ski-ing is hard work!) you can just strip a layer off.
