July in the Southern Alps!
Snow capped mountains, crisp morning frosts and clear blue skies. What’s not to love about this time of year in Queenstown? Ski and snowboard enthusiasts arrive and head up the four ski areas within 20 to 90 minutes of the town centre, from first to last lift!
Queenstown is not short of amazing views and pistes for beginners to advanced winter riders to enjoy. Whether you are here to compete and explore new terrain or just to learn how to get from the top of the hill to the bottom, there is something for everyone in this winter wonderland, and the same applies for the rest of the town, once you descend the mountain. Queenstown is full of delicious cafes to enjoy a hot chocolate or quality coffee, at Patagonia for example, and a range of delicious wineries and bars, where you can pick up a mulled wine after a hard day's work on the slopes!
If you are ready for a little apres ski on the weekends join us on our Hop on Hop off Evening Beer Tour every Friday and Saturday night starting at 5pm. You can easily make the last lift and still join us to travel around Queenstown, Arrowtown and some of the Gibbston Valley, tasting the amazing craft beers and delicious local wines for the evening. Rest your tired legs and enjoy an apres ski beer, mulled wine and delicious gourmet burgers and bar snacks.
Remember, for your white-out days join us on board our full day Hop on Hop off Wine Tour in Queenstown. We encourage you to visit as many of our partners as possible and rely on us as your trusty designated drivers.

Marlborough may not have the snowfall and winter wonderland feel of our Queenstown destination in July but there is still plenty to do and some beautiful bluebird skies for those looking to enjoy a slightly milder winter.
The large wine country region is JUST as beautiful in winter and rolling through the vineyards on one of our Hop on Hop off buses provides a cosy, comfortable way to see the region. Also see our Scenic Tours for those looking for a private luxury experience in the Sounds.
For outdoor enthusiasts drawn to the Marlborough Sounds to challenge themselves on the Queen Charlotte track, winter is a great time to visit. It is much quieter during the winter months and the reward of sitting in front of a crackling fire and enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir upon your return is absolutely worth the slightly cooler temperatures. Many of our amazing stops will have a warm fire blazing and a delicious Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Noir ready for you, matched with some fresh local produce. These include: Allan Scott, Wither Hills, The Vines Village, Saint Clair and many more.
Relax and enjoy two stops in front of the fire. Other great ways to enjoy the Marlborough sounds this winter are via bike, on some of the amazing bike trails around, or kayaking out to the islands and enjoying some of the local wildlife. Visit our friends at Wilderness Guides for tours on foot, by bike and by kayak out to the sounds and the Queen Charlotte track.
“Had the pleasure to participate in this experience. Every winery has a different characteristic and a different experience.
The bus drivers were always friendly with everyone and so was the staff in all the wineries.
I probably would go again and visit different ones and try other wines.
Overall, if you’re in Queenstown and not sure on what to do, this is definitely worth it.”

“The drivers were really friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. Made the day so much easier knowing exactly when the bus would come etc. For people in the future thinking of doing this tour i would suggest that you would need more than one stop at a couple of wineries so you can enjoy the atmosphere not just taste and go! Great service though from this company and would recommend to others hoping to do a wine tour.”
