FOUR FAVOURITE SOUTH ISLAND WINTER EXPERIENCES

Posted by Kiwi Experience Crew on 11 August 2015

WHY WINTER? THINK LESS CROWDS, MORE SNOW CAPPED MOUNTAINS...

 

So you're trying to decide if it's worth leaving the Northern Hemisphere's tropical (or not so) mid-year months to head to New Zealand mid-winter?

Or maybe you're already here and trying to figure out whether surfing in the South Island mid-winter is possible (yes) and where you can impress the rest of the bus with your ice-skating skills (Tekapo).

Head over to NewZealand.com and have a quick read of our Top 4 South Island Kiwi experiences for the colder months. You'll be donning your wetsuit and skis before you know it. 

Here's a round-up of our top 4 experiences:
