On arrival into Queenstown you'll be met by your private chauffeur who will help orient you on the short drive to your accommodation, Eichardt's Private Hotel. Eichardt's is a Queenstown icon, perched on the shores of Lake Wakatipu in the very centre of town. You'll be welcomed warmly and have time to enjoy the town this afternoon. At a convenient time, your private ski concierge will meet you in the comfort of your accommodation to fit your gear including boots and skis or snowboard. Later enjoy a pre-dinner drink with fellow guests at Eichardt's Bar, one of Queenstown's best, before dining in-house or at one of the many nearby Queenstown restaurants.
Enjoy a warming breakfast at Eichardt's restaurant before your driver arrives this morning. You will love the alpine scenery as you relax on the 45 minute drive to Cardrona this morning. On arrival your local host will ensure you have your lift passes and know which runs will be best for your ability and preferred style, before waving you off. After some world-class ski runs this morning, your host will have claimed a table for you in advance at the best lunch venue on the mountain so you don't have to fight the crowds. Later, after a full day of action on the snow, you'll enjoy après ski drinks at historic Cardona Hotel or another Wanaka bar tailored to your preference. Return to Eichardt's in time for a pre-dinner drink in the lounge; you'll love warming up by the fire. Dinner at the Eichardt's restaurant is a good option tonight.
Another day of alpine adventures await today at Queenstown's best ski resort, the Remarkables. After breakfast at Eichardt's, you'll enjoy a 40 minute scenic chauffeur transfer up the mountain with the valley views opening up as you climb higher. On arrival at the ski field, your host will ensure you have your lift passes and know which runs are the local favourites, before waving you off for a full day of skiing or snowboarding the Remarkables. At the day's end, your driver will meet you and have you back at Eichardt's in time for a soak in the bath before a complimentary drink in the lounge, or perhaps head out to discover Queenstown's après ski drink scene tonight. Your ski gear will be collected from Eichardt's for your convenience.
This morning you'll enjoy a sleep-in and relaxed breakfast. Later, your local driver will collect you for a private winery tour to discover some of Gibbston Valley's award-winning Pinot and other premium Central Otago wines. You'll enjoy tastings at a minimum of three great vineyards this morning. There is time to enjoy lunch at Amisfield Winery if you wish (additional cost applies). Linger at lunch or squeeze in some more tastings in the afternoon - the choice is yours. You'll return to Eichardt's late this afternoon for pre-dinner drinks with fellow hotel guests.
Enjoy a final breakfast at Eichardt's and perhaps a stroll along the Queenstown foreshore this morning. After checkout and one last look at Lake Wakatipu and the snowy peaks beyond, your chauffeur will collect you for your transfer to the airport.
