Alhamdulillah and BIG Congratulations… Ikhlas Tours has been appointed as an agent to the biggest Motorhome supplier in New Zealand… Perggghhhh… layan road trip la lepas niiii… Time to plan for your road trip with great local deals…Of course this part you need to contact Ikhlas Tours to get further details… try not to miss this ya… cause it’s for the Autumn/Winter season deal…
I have shared with you about creating your “Golden Autumn Journey” right??? Apa lagiiii… Autumn is just around the corner… pack your bag darling… haha
Well… enough mumbling Dira… next topic pleasee (talking to myself… to control not to overly write of unnecessary things…haha) Since the great deal is for Autumn/Winter… it's the best time for me to share with you about Winter Wonders in New Zealand that will surprise you…
You probably wonder what great activities to do in super cold weather when you would rather stay at home and don’t even want to get out of your warm blanket… Yep, that was pretty much my train of thought too… hahaha… but let me share something that might change your mind and willing to put your thick winter jacket… hit the road to see the magical view of white snow capped or snow covered mountains as your “Selfie” pictures background… Time to change to new profile picture guys (I can feel you)…hehe
Tips: I would suggest North Island Road Trip in winter cause in South Island some of the best tourist spots and roads will be closed due to bad weather condition and you might end up disappointed when you can’t enter certain places… Plus the temperature in North Island is not too cold compared to South Island.
Does it snow in New Zealand?
Well…don't expect the ground to be continuously blanketed by snow. Mostly you can see snow when you take the scenic drive up to Mount Ruapehu and Mount Taranaki in the North Island. While in the South Island mountains are all snow covered.
Save some cash - Accommodation will be cheaper and you could probably get good airfares deal since less people travelling… you can stay longer and do more with the extra cash you save right..hehe… another plus point when you are in NZ; lots of free outdoor activities that will promise stunning views…
Skiing and Snow boarding - drive up to Mount Ruapehu to get your snow falling experience (Beginners like me…for sure jatuh tergolek lerrrr…haha)…”Do you wanna build a snowww mannn… ”hehe..feeling abis!! Whoever wants to play with snow, Whakapapa Ski Field or Turoa Ski Field in Mount Ruapehu need to be in your list. If you're a skier, you'll be heading to Queenstown, Mount Hutt, Canterbury in the South Island, or the Central Plateau in the North Island - and paying top dollar for the privilege and have fun!!!!
- Te Aroha Mineral Spa – South of Auckland beneath Mount Te Aroha
- Lost Spring Spa – Coromandel
- Polynesian Spa – Rotorua

Winter adventure - avoid busy summer trails and explore it during winter with less people around...·
- Tramp the Aotea Track…For hikers/trampers another trail you could explore during the low season...Rugged, bushy, and beautiful, Great Barrier Island is a true wilderness on Auckland’s doorstep. Climb the Hirakimata (627m). Two cozy huts and hot springs en route make this a wonderful winter walk.·
- Cycling the Hauraki Rail Trail...Scenic, easy, and close to Auckland – Hauraki Rail Trail has proven such a hit. One of New Zealand’s new national Cycle Trails, the 82km track traces historic railway lines across the green plains between Thames and Te Aroha, and through the Karangahake Gorge.
Tips: Please remember daylight hours are less in winter…so you need to carefully plan your journey…Review back your gear…what clothes to wear especially when you head up the mountains or outdoor activities.
Till then…have a great week ahead travel lovers…talk to you soon!
