Good dynamics in the group. Excellent guiding. Friendliness of all. Accommodation a little below expectation at Pinewood Lodge Queenstown. Breakfast supplies hit and miss, run out at different times of bananas, peanut butter etc.., more planning needed as in maybe having a checklist of provisions. Also, the bus the group traveled in needs to retire. Springs poking through bottomed out seats, blowing black smoke, exhaust fumes present inside. "Murray" got us back to Christchurch, the only good thing about this vehicle. But overall, goal achieved: lots of fun in friendly non judgemental environment improved my skiing in one week off the grid.

I had the time of my life on the trip!! To quote our tour guide "Road Trip with your friends". I was flying solo on this trip and a beginner too snow boarding. Grant (G-Dog) Excellant Driver & Tour guide, was really helpful with extra activities on free day & the one day I decided not too up a mountain. He made the trip Fun!!!!! The tour is stress and hassle free, let someone else worry about chains on the car, Getting too the mountains and checking the weather too see which ones best for the day. Don't hesitate too book this trip, it's beginners friendly & I made new friends day 1. Will definetly recommended too all my friends. Keep it real G-Dog 🤘🏼

As a beginner Snowboarder Haka 7 Day Snow Safari was perfect for my needs. They provided everything from the board and boots, to an incredible guide with so much knowledge.

My tour also had highly experienced individuals and it was perfect for them too. They were taken to some of the most pristine snow, untouched by others.

In the 7 days our little group became a family. Eating, breathing, boarding together. I wanted a tour that had a balance of time on the mountain combined with seeing and experiencing New Zealand. Haka Tours 100% hit the mark.

The tour leader, Burto created a relaxed yet seamlessly organised week that has won my personal "Best Tour EVER" award.

I am already working out when I can get back to NZ to go on another tour with Haka.

If you are looking for a week long snow tour, don't look past Haka Tours. You wont be disappointed.

Hearty thanks to Haka Tours for a great great trip through peak mountains, lake towns, lodges, bars, restaurants, barista stations, spas, and any number of side trips for canyon leaps and more.

In the moment times all day, all ways, where the skills get better, the snow is different every day, and where everyone else is pretty much with the same bent for snow time.

Christchurch to Queenstown and back where dedicated and knowledgeable guidemasters set it up daily for an easy and enjoyable blast. Do it and do it again tomorrow.

Perfect for me

Snow Safari is perfect for me. It's all sorted - just get on the bus in the morning and they provide the gear, the lift passes, guide you on the mountain and offer so much local knowledge.

The social scene is amazing. Life long friends made. You can have dinner with your crew and go out drinking if you choose.

I have done it 4 years in a row and it has always catered to my different needs.

Absolutely love the local guides and the smaller, personal crew you travel with.

Amazing. I aim to come back every year with Haka!

Awesome Tour!

Loved this trip and going back again this year. Best way to see heaps of different ski fields whilst seeing the South Island.

The small groups are cool, we had 12 on our last one.

Burto the Tour Manager was a legend! Accom was really good.

Brilliant

I highly recommend this tour!! No matter your age or ability you will have a fabulous time. Everything is done for you so all you have to worry about is having fun. It is NOT a booze fueled trip, only for young people, it is extremely professional and extremely well organised. Excellent value for money, too.
