How to Book

We don’t believe in off-the-shelf packages - we tailor-make holidays.

  • Tell us what you want to do. Whether you have detailed plans or just a vague idea, get in contact – we have knowledge, ideas and expertise.
  • We build a tailored itinerary. Once you’ve received it, we can answer any further questions and refine it until you are completely happy.
  • Book it. When you are satisfied with all the arrangements, we ask you to complete a booking form and pay a deposit, at which point we start confirming everything.

Different Snow is a fully bonded tour operator, which means we automatically take responsibility for your whole holiday, offering you 100% financial security.

Our tailor-made journeys offer complete freedom of choice. There are no set departure dates or prices - instead we create a bespoke itinerary to suit you. The featured itineraries below are simply suggestions, to give you a flavour of what's possible. In fact, these are holidays we've already operated for previous clients and we know they work well, though each can be tailored to suit your preferences. Otherwise, we could start with a blank sheet of paper. Luxury? On a budget? When it comes to price, you tell us your ceiling and we'll try to keep within this. 

Many of our clients want to head straight to the Queenstown / Wanaka region on the South Island.  Once there, we can simply book your accommodation, perhaps organise a hire car and leave you to your own devices. Alternatively, we can create an itinerary which includes lift passes, ski rental and activities - it's entirely up to you how much you want to have booked in advance. 

If you want to tour and see a bit of New Zealand, then we find that a hire car works best. Roads are gloriously quiet, distances are manageable and the drive itself is usually hugely enjoyable, passing through outrageously beautiful landscapes. We can book accommodation, create a day-by-day itinerary and organise excursions ... we're brimming with suggestions. We know New Zealand very well, some of us having lived there for significant periods.

Because we hold an ATOL license, we can also include your international flights. If you wish to break the long journey, Different Snow can also organise stop-over in Asia, Australia, the Middle East or America.
