Experience New Zealand Winter Wonderland Next Year

What will you be doing next July? Preparing your tax receipts? Snuggling up with a cup of coffee and a middle-of-the-road TV show? Wishing you could be anywhere but dreary old home, doing the same things you always do? Next winter could be different. Very different.

Nine days of snow, sun and South Island fun, chowing down on Christmas dishes between coach routes across the country and a few train-side excursions. Have we captured your interest? Does a wintry season on the slopes tickle a fancy? Is it time to do winter like the rest of the world, capturing the essence of wonder in one, simple holiday? Read on. We have so much to tell you.

 

Stop Dreaming About a White Christmas…

View from the Slopes

… and make it something you know personally, building memories around our carefully planned, always stimulating itinerary. From the gleaming waters of Lake Tekapo, to the delicious samples of Amisfield Winery, and the glory of the glaciers, you’ll be transported to the snow-globe of your dreams, surrounded by beauty, brilliance and more things to do than you can poke with a ski pole.

 

 

Dash Through the Snow!

Did you ever imagine you’d have a choice between dog-sledding, snow-mobiles or skiing? Well you do with Kirra Tours. Each activity is a definitive option on our 9 Day Mid Winter Christmas Wonderland jaunt, bringing the very best New Zealand Winter Experiences to the table, with a dash of authenticity and dusting of thrills and chills. Although relaxing by a roaring, open fire is always a plan, don’t spend your days doing something you could do at home – dare to be different.

 

Tuck into a Hearty Meal

Dessert Anyone??

One of the best things about Christmas is the food (and family, of course), as tables full of hams, vegetables, roasts, salads, seafood, puddings and pavlovas feed the senses and the soul. Pity it only happens once a year, or twice if you travel with us. Our specialised, 9-day New Zealand winter coach tour includes a delicious Christmas feast worthy of many helpings and an extra kilo of travel weight.

 

 

Queue?

Not you! Speed through lines that would wind for metres and metres in summer and spring, making your travel experience all the more relaxing. But what if you miss out? You won’t, while the winter is definitely cold, Franz Josef will be in fine form and the hot, thermal springs you’ll savour along the way will be that little bit more memorable. We won’t spoil everything, but expect a few happy surprises along the way.
