    I have been on the snow tour with burto twice and both trips have been amazing! He makes a point of taking the group on family runs to include everyone and works to improve your ability. He also comes out with the tour group in the evenings which is going above and beyond his requirements as a tour guide and really makes a difference to the trip. He makes everyone feel comfortable and confident in the group so you leave as a group of friends rather than people that have done a tour together. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him as a tour guide!

    This was my first time travelling solo overseas and joining this tour was one of the best things I've done for myself! It's in my nature to ask a billion questions and research the sh*t out of something before I jump into it, and the team at Haka Tours were incredibly helpful in answering all of my questions. All I needed to sort out were my flights - the rest was taken care of by Haka Tours. My group were a bunch of legends, led by an awesome tour manager, Chris, who was super organised and professional, yet friendly and funny. As for the actual tour, travelling around the South Island from ski resort to ski resort and taking in the stunning scenery was truly a great experience. Getting the opportunity to snowboard on 6 different mountains with new-found friends was even better. And as a first-timer staying in hostels, I was quite impressed with the accommodation, and was completely comfortable. If you're fine with early morning starts to get up the mountains for first runs, then I highly recommend this tour. I'm not a morning person at all, but this was all worth it for me. LOVED IT!

    AMAZING! INSPIRING! BREATHTAKING! Snowboarding in New Zealand was really something magical, the views are beautiful, the runs are varied and really well kept. Ohau, Treble Cone and Cardrona were my personal favourite snow fields. The whole tour was incredible, our guide was more like a good friend, really giving a personal tour of the South Island, stopping to let us take pictures, and taking us to his favourite fish and chip shop, Hygi was a truly awesome guide and person. When the plane lost my luggage he rang everyday for a week to see where it was, to help find it and hopefully get it delivered to where we were going next. Then when i had a suspected fracture on my first day he was calm, and collected, no one missed out on anything, i went to get some x-rays and a cast then was picked up and we continued on with the tour. Hygi and our tour group were a mixed bunch of all ages and personality types that came together for a sense of adventure and a love of snowboarding/skiing. They really inspired and helped me on my first holiday by myself, out of Australia. The people in our group were really special, we bonded and shared experiences, had some awesome nights out and shared an incredible snow sports adventure together. To sum the tour up it was heaps of fun, really really well organised, personal, i saw and did some incredible things, awesome snowboarding, also breakfast was included!!

    This was a really excellent tour. Great way to see the south Island and 6 different ski resorts. Haka Touts (NIc) did an excellent job with all the arrangements, including helping me with add ons at the end of the tour, and renting special skis for me. Hygi was great to work with, knowledgable, efficient, and a good driver too. I definitely recommedn this tour.

    If there's no snow, what is the cancellation policy?

    There are quite a few different mountains you can go to while on tour, so we will definitely find you snow and best conditions each day. If for some reason while you are on tour the mountain conditions are not favourable and we can not find an alternative for that day, you will get a refund for the lift pass for that day.

    I'd like to stay an extra night in Queenstown instead of returning to Christchurch is that possible?

    You can definitely choose to stay in Queenstown for the night after your tour instead of heading back to Christchurch. The accommodation is at Haka Lodge Queenstown, if you would like us to book a night of post tour accommodation there after your tour please let us know. This can be booked directly
