You will also have the opportunity to take part in a range of action activities, and improve your skiing or snowboarding ability.

Queenstown sits on the shore of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu among dramatic alpine ranges. The Remarkables and Coronet Peak ski areas both offer professional snowsport schools and varied terrain suitable to all ability levels. Queenstown boasts many great cafe's and restaurants within walking distance of your accommodation and a smorgasbord of outdoor activities, canyon swinging, gondola rides, luging, jet boating, horse trekking and river rafting are available all year round. 


"We flew into Queenstown with incredible views of New Zealand’s Southern Alps. The next day we could not have had better skiing conditions, and the activities were a blast; Jet boating, Gondola ride and luge track. In all the trip cannot be explained in any other terms than spectacular. We are already lining up for next year. A massive thank you to the team at Educating Adventures for making it an enormous success and an experience I shall never forget."
