Why do we love this
This trip combines a classic South Island experience with an epic ski adventure in Cardrona which we think is pretty cool. We also love how flexible this tour is - you can choose exactly when and where you get off and what activities you want to do!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Winter is coming... but don't worry, even though it's cold and snowy, New Zealand is just heating up! It gets even more beautiful here as the year gets colder. Get ready for majestic mountains covered in snow and some serious ski action. The South Island is the spot to be as it transforms into a mind-blowing winter wonderland.
This pass is a combination of the popular ‘Southern Round Up’ pass with a 1 or 3-day ski adventure included. It's the perfect way to experience the South of New Zealand!
With this flexible bus pass, you can hit the must-see sights of the South, choosing to hop on and off wherever you like. Visit quirky Christchurch, soak up the beauty in Wanaka or explore famous Franz Josef. This pass also gives you access to either a 1 or 3-day ski package to Cardrona.
This is the largest and most famous of NZ’s ski fields and truly caters to all ski levels. Extensive wide open trails offer some of NZ’s best snow conditions, and there's no shortage of great runs. It's impossible to have a bad day on this mountain!
Basically what this trip gives you is the chance to see New Zealand your way. Choose to hop on and off where you like and decide which activities you want to experience in each place. Maybe you want to see stunning Lake Tekapo and take a bungee jump in Queenstown, or perhaps beautiful Wanaka and Abel Tasman are on your list? This bus pass makes it easy!
Navigating the roads across the South Island can be tricky, but with a professional driver, your experience is simple. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenery. There'll be a reservations team and driver guide on hand every step of the way to help you with managing your itinerary and activities. All you need to do is decide what takes your fancy.
As you travel, you’ll see crisp skies, snow-capped peaks and pristine lakes and experience the famous Kiwi hospitality. You'll also have the opportunity to meet a bunch of incredible people from all over the world, and of course, you'll get to see some of the most famous NZ sights.
You will need to pay for accommodation and any gear hire required. But don't worry about accommodation booking out! Even in peak season (when accommodation can be hard to come by) your first night's accommodation is guaranteed when travelling with Kiwi Experience. Your driver guide will take care of finding you a comfy and affordable bed. All customers arriving in Queenstown on the Kiwi Bus get three nights guaranteed accommodation.
So what are you waiting for? Now's your chance to see New Zealand in a way that suits you!
The minimum travel time for this pass is 11 days.
