Glorious winter getaway

If the slopes are not your style, there are many other wintery adventures you can go for instead.

A getaway means something different to everyone. For some, it’s laxing out, reading, eating, and relaxing. For others, it’s full of activity, exploring, and trying new things. Here are a few ideas, and something for all tastes. Perhaps the best winter getaway is a mix of them all?


In winter, the south comes alive with stunning snow-capped mountains in every direction, and beautiful bluebird days to match. This makes it the ideal time to try a few new walks you haven’t yet, as the options are plenty. A few great walks in the South Island include the Kepler Track, the Heaphy Track, and the Paparoa Track. Of course, keeping an eye on the weather and watching for rain and dangerous conditions is crucial.


For the foodies out there, a holiday isn’t a holiday unless you’re sampling some incredible culinary spots along the way. Planning your getaway around food and beverage offerings is a great way to go. You can book special tours and learn from experts in the area. This is especially popular with wine regions down in Central Otago or north around Marlborough.


To rest and recharge is often the goal of a getaway, so take that to the max and splash out on a little pampering. Book a night away at a retreat, or seek out a nearby spa for a day of treatments and massage. Another option is to book accommodation near one of the many hot spring locations, so you can head to the pools as much as you like for a delightful soak.
