Take time to play this winter in Mackenzie

Home to New Zealand’s highest peak and longest glacier, the Mackenzie Region provides the greatest variety of winter experiences and three uncrowded ski fields who cater to all ages and abilities.

From June through to September, the region transforms into a winter wonderland. Try ice skating or ride the snow tube, visit a salmon farm or explore the Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park. Take time to relax with the family in some of the most spectacular alpine scenery in the country.
