    The easiest and most convenient way to explore the ski fields on the South Island! Great itinerary, group size is small, accommodation all clean and cosy (they all have drying rooms for boots), gear renting was easy and affordable. Would do it again!

    This tour is a great way to explore the major snow fields that New Zealand has to offer. Haka Tours takes care of everything, from transportation to lift passes to several meals, so you do not have to worry about anything except getting as many turns in... Show more

    Be careful about the accommodation. The Haka lodge was noisy, shared facilities only and not for someone who doesn't feel comfortable sharing with a large number of random people

    Such a great way to snowboard in NZ, much easier than trying to organize all the logistics yourself and Lizzie was an amazing tour guide.

    I had a great time but there were definitely some downfalls. 1. The bus was a tight fit. It was advertised as a 25 seater with no more than 16 attending but I counted only 19 seats in total. 2. Enroute to Mt Hutt the snow chains broke and there were... Show more
