Forget the mass market and commercial ski fields in Queenstown. The Odyssey tour will take you to regions that are rich in history with strong pioneering folk carving the area into the diverse, challenging and natural playground that it is today.

The 12 day South Island Snow Odyssey is not for the faint hearted as we ski/board eight different mountains over 12 Days through awesome, but challenging, terrain. Mountains such as Temple Basin, Broken river and Craigieburn may sound unfamiliar now, but we guarantee you will fall in love with them!

The Odyssey tour is suited to intermediate to experienced skiers and snowboarders only. All tours start on a Sunday and end on a Thursday which means you can extend your trip in Wanaka or Queenstown.

As we start early in the morning, you can opt to stay at Haka Lodge Christchurch the night before we depart, only having to walk downstairs on day one makes for a stress free morning. Likewise you can book an extra night at the Lodge on  the last day so you are not in a rush once we go our separate ways.



We provide everything you need for the ultimate, stress-free time on the snow in New Zealand:

  • 11 nights’ accommodation (quad share upgrades avaliable)
  • 9 full day ski passes to 8 different ski fields
  • Expert tour manager
  • Guided tour of each mountain
