Day 2 – 6

After lunch, get back out on the slopes with your friends and practice your newfound skills.

In your free time or if the conditions are unsuitable for skiing , we will include a variety of adventure activities like jet boating, horse trekking, , ice-skating, Historic steam boat rides across lake, bird park visit, or a day on the Routeburn track.

The Remarkables:

One word sums up this mountains cape above all others – remarkable. Like something straight out of Lord Of The Rings, this range stands proudly above the international airport, with jagged peaks that look as sharp as a knife. However, the mountainside that faces away from the town is far gentler, with a six-person chairlift and three quads.

Coronet Peak:

This mountain is a little gentler than its neighbour, with far more intermediate (blue square) slopes – ideal for anyone looking to up their skills without stressing out too much. One of the major drawcards of Coronet Peak is its night skiing. Every Friday and Saturday you can enjoy the park evening in the dark, as hundreds of lights keep things sparkling from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m.

Overnight in Queenstown.

Day 7

In the morning after breakfast you will jump aboard the historic TSS Earnslaw – the southern hemispheres only operating steamboat. Take the journey across Lake Wakatipu to Walter Peak High Country Station. TSS Earnslaw is one of the world’s oldest and largest remaining coal-fired steamships and has graced the lake since 1912. She is the last of a long line of coal-burning steamers used on the lake to ferry people and goods to inaccessible areas on the shores of Lake Wakatipu from as early as 1863. Now used primarily for pleasure cruising, she takes visitors to the popular Walter Peak High Country Farm for the start of more adventurous experiences on foot and bike and onto the surrounding hills and towering mountains. Students can view the engine room with its giant steam engines, while a collection of historical photos in the ship’s museum tell the story of her colourful history. Having carried royalty and movie stars, the ship has also played a cameo role in the movie ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Later in the afternoon you will travel to Walter Peak and look at how an NZ station runs – shearing sheep and meeting the dogs that keep them in line.

In the evening, have some fun time on a cable car ride and luge, afterwards enjoy dinner far above the town and lake Wakatipu.

Overnight in Queenstown.

Day 8

Enjoy a morning at leisure before departing for Queenstown airport for your flight back home.
