Here we are in winter again and Ruapehu is open for skiing, yeah finally. If you are feeling like a buzz in the snow don't forget our super weekend deals and check out our chalet at National Park. If you can not get away in winter enjoy the beautiful walks,fishing and heaps of other activities available year round in the area. We also have a branch here so if you want to enjoy the train to Wellington with a stop off in National Park ,you can hire a car to check out the area and then again in Wellington.
The Tongariro crossing is recognized as one of the best short walks in the world.
Scotties now has cars available in the beautiful Queenstown. No tourist should come to New Zealand with out a visit here, it is truely beautiful and if sking isn't your thing there is also a lot to do here. The winter festival is on at the moment so the town is abuzz with live acts, parades and the Mardi gras this week was great.
The walks in Queenstown lakes are fantastic, there are fantastic places to stay and visit and the new Hilton hotel has the best coffee in town and is well worth a visit for the interior design alone.
