Join us for 7 days of nature, fresh air, walks, wine, hot tubs, ebike rides, stunning scenery, relaxation, indulgence and fun! We base ourselves at our lovely private Lake Ruataniwha accommodation.
Day 1 - Arrival day! You might like to make your own way to Twizel, or we can transport you from Christchurch if you choose to fly in.
Day 2 - Today we hop on e-bikes and ride the easy Alps to Ocean trail from Tekapo to Twizel (56km), stopping for photos and breaks along the way. Arriving in Twizel, there might be time to look around the shops before we go back to our lakeside accommodation to relax.
Day 3 - This morning we get transported to Lake Ohau and ride another easy and lovely section of the Alps to Ocean trail (38km) back to Twizel. The stunning lake and mountain views, and reflections on the lakes means we will be taking lots more pictures today. Just so lovely to be out enjoying the fresh air and nature!
Day 4 - After a hearty breakfast we will head to Mt Cook National Park for the day for a walk to visit mountains, glaciers and all that this majestic place has to offer. We will have a picnic lunch amidst the
views! After another glorious day we head home for a glass of wine and the sunset.
Day 5 - we have something special up our sleeves today! A quirky and funny farm tour, unlike any other and full of surprises, but guaranteed to make you laugh! We will head to Twizel for lunch in a local cafe, then visit the Salmon Farm to feed the fish, before heading to the spectacular Clay Cliffs to explore more wonders of nature. We finish the day with a relaxing soak with a glass of wine, under the stars, in the Omarama hot tubs!
Day 6 - Another great day ahead, full of more breathtaking scenery. Today we travel to Kurow for a wine-tasting and cheese platter lunch. The drive there is amazing, following more beautiful lakes. The wine-tasting is informative and fun too, and the wine is just....divine!
Day 7 - Our wonderful, eventful week is over - and we head back to Christchurch...
