Mid-Winter with a Festive Touch

6 Day Fully Hosted Small Group Tour.

Join us this winter for a wonderful escape to the heart of the Mackenzie Country.


Enjoy picturesque Lake Tekapo, famous for its remarkable crystal-clear turquoise colour lake to the mountainous drama of the Southern Alps.  By night there is no better place to see the dazzling night sky, than in this perfect stargazing spot as we visit the UNESCO Dark Sky Reserve and Mt John Observatory.


From the tallest mountain in New Zealand including the Tasman Glacier Lake experience, we enjoy the most incredible vistas that lie within this special part of the country and all this topped off with a delicious mid-winter Christmas Dinner and all the trimmings, where we are hosted by a lovely local family.


For landscape lovers and those seeking incredible scenery, hidden gems plus a touch of Christmas in the winter, this is the journey for you.
