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.

The North Island of New Zealand is home to some of the finest luxury lodges in the world, where Kiwi hospitality is at the fore, the cuisine is game-changing and the settings of another (middle) world! Accommodation such as Huka Lodge (near Taupo), Cape Kidnappers (Hawkes Bay), Wharekauhau (Palliser Bay, near Wellington) and Eagles Nest (Bay of Islands) speak fro themselves.

Yet New Zealand has the whole range and you need not spend you time exclusively in  these upmarket retreats, as characterful B&Bs, value-for-money motels and  small boutique hotels complete the picture. We listen acutely to what you want, we keep the budget at the forefront of our mind and we can then create an itinerary to suit you. Talk to us.
