Meals Included: Dinner

Welcome snow squad! Here in Queenstown we have one very clear and common agenda: the perfect week of powder. Whether you're a pro, mid range or beginner, the world-class terrain here is suitable for all skill levels and abilities, and we'll be testing out three of the Southern Hemisphere's best ski fields: Cardrona, Coronet & The Remarkables. Tonight, we'll start off by getting cosy over a team dinner and sharing our enthusiasm for the week of adventures ahead. Later on, it's our first chance to hit up the Queenstown nightlife - shall we start as we mean to go on?

Rise and shine! Today is dedicated to snow, snow and more snow. Though your body may be feeling the pinch, the mountains won't shred themselves!

Collapsing into bed tonight, we'll sleep soundly before our well-earned free day tomorrow.

My amazing trip to Africa

13-Jan-2023

Sherif was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about every single small detail at each site that we visited. In addition to his great service, he has a glowing spirit that made me feel like I had family with me the entire trip. Anything that I was concerned about, he always had an answer and was there to help. I truly enjoyed my experience and will purchase a tour with him in the future
