Excellent snow field close to Queenstown. Definitely recommend taking a bus if you're not driving a 4WD and aren't used to driving in snowy conditions with chains. Take a tip from two 22 year olds who nearly skidded off the bloody mountain driving at only 5km/hr!
Do it. It's 100000% worth the money. We went with Rosco's Milfor Kayak's, which are the only operating company in winter. We stayed mostly warm and dry and the weather was spectacular, water clarity was amazing! It was an experience of a lifetime.
Definitely the party town of the South Island! A must for Ski-trip locations! We stayed in Nomad's backpackers which was central, affordable, nice and clean, and super fun with all the extra low-cost activities they provided (pub crawl to the Minus 5 Ice bar, anyone?).
Crossing from the west coast over to Queenstown takes you on the Haast Pass! Following the Haast river from its mouth at the town of Haast, up to it's source near where this photo was taken on the actual pass!
Franz Josef is amazing. We took the valley walk up to the terminal face, but apparently this walk is now closed. Such a pity! Next time I go I think I'll splurge and go on a helicopter ride to walk on the ice.
The tour company we joined were so friendly and fun. And we ended at a chocolate factory! You're speaking to all our needs, Highlight Wine Tours! Out half day tour consisted of a delicious lunch at Wairau River wines, a fudge factory, a couple more wineries, and the Makana chocolate factory (Butterscotch Slice is my recommendation!).
