Women's long weekend away to magical Mt Cook/Twizel area - explore the natural beauty of this stunning area
Magical Mt Cook Getaway for the Ladies!
Join us either from Christchurch or drive yourself to our lodge next to Twizel, on Lake Ruataniwha.
We will spend 3 wonderful days in this magical area, doing some lovely walks, enjoying nice meals, some scenic drives, and a visit to the stunning Mt Cook village where we will enjoy a day out! We will soak in a hot tub under the stars of clear Southern skies...
Day 1: we will drive (for those that arrive in Christchurch) down to Twizel, via Geraldine and Lake Tekapo, stopping along the way. After a "cruisey" day we get to the lodge in time for the sunset and to watch the stars come out. Drinks at home, followed by dinner in Twizel.
Day 2/3: enjoy breakfast with a view from our large deck - mountains and lakes are the magnificent backdrop.
Which day we do what depends on the weather:
- Day Trip to Mt Cook - we drive along the turquoise waters of Lake Pukaki - here we will visit the Mt Cook visitors center to give you an idea of the amazing history, flora and fauna of the area, and then we will go for a walk up the stunning Hooker Valley. This is a magical day out in a special part of New Zealand! Back in time for a hot shower, drinks and then we go out for a meal. (Picnic lunch included, dinner not included)
-Day Trip Twizel area: what we do today depends on the weather, but one thing is guaranteed: a great day out! Here's a list of possibilities: investigate the local shops, explore this stunning area (we will take you to some of our favorite secret Kiwi spots and show you the turquoise waters of Lake Ohau and Lake Ruataniwha), enjoy a stunning walk and possibly a picnic (weather permitting), visit the local Salmon Farm where you can feed the fish, visit a winery and do a tasting, partake in a quirky farm tour, explore the Clay Cliffs ....at the endo of the day we head off to the local Omarama Hot Tubs for a soak under the Southern stars!! Dinner at the country pub and then home to our comfy beds. (Lunch and dinner not included).
Day 4 - after a good breakfast (time permitting, we might squeeze something else in) we begin our drive back to Christchurch.
Please note it is possible to stay longer at the lodge if you would like to relax for a bit longer and take in all those breathtaking views.
This is the perfect springtime getaway to one of the most scenic parts of the country. We will explore this wonderful area and all it has to offer - turquoise lakes and rivers, snow-capped mountains, lupin-filled valleys and visit local shops and mouth-watering restaurants! RELAX - INDULGE - ENJOY!
