Winter Family Getaway
There is nothing like sitting back enjoying family-time toasting marshmallows by the fire! Our new winter family getaway has been designed for the New Zealand winter and we have partnered with some of our favourite locals to bring you a one-of-a-kind package like no other as two separate optional add-ons!
The winter family getaway package is for 3 nights which gives you enough time to explore Glenorchy and the local Queenstown lakes region. We have also included breakfast and two evening meals in your package, so you don't need to worry about cooking.
Do as little or as much as you want; walk the local area, take the family on a bike ride, visit the local farmyard or try out one of the optional add ons. Enjoy a thrilling one-day family guided helicopter and snowshoe experience with an on-snow lunch, ideal for families looking for a unique, exhilarating, yet easy, once-in-a-lifetime, family snow activity perfect for those who do not know how to ski/snowboard or those families not quite ready to spend the time in learning on a short getaway!

Add some fun winter activities to your stay
One day helicopter and snowshoeing experience
This breathtaking experience is definitely one to tick off the bucket list! Start your day with an exhilarating helicopter ride from the Glenorchy Airstrip to the landing pad at 1880m high up on Mt Larkins. Your expert guide will make you feel comfortable in the mountain before taking you on a snowshoe circuit over the stunning terrain which showcases amazing views.
There will be time to refuel with a light lunch at Kelly's Hut, where you will have time to soak in the experience. Before the sun goes down the helicopter will arrive to pick you up for the equally exciting return flight to the valley floor.
The trip duration is approximately 4-5 hours, so there will be plenty of time for amazing pictures and even a few snowballs!
Family of 4 with two helicopter flights, lunch, and exclusive snowshoe experience:
$795 per person
Family of 5 with two helicopter flights, lunch, and exclusive snowshoe experience:
$675 per person

We've got you covered
We have included two evening meals in your package, so you don't need to worry about cooking. We'll have a delicious pre-prepared meal and a selection of raw vegetables and hummus waiting for you. All you need to do is reheat it and serve. A continental buffet breakfast is also included, with delicious homemade granola, a selection of spreads, toast, yoghurt, fruits, tea and coffee, and more.
Glenorchy has a few restaurants and cafes, but you will also have access to our state-of-the-art kitchen, where you will love to cook if you choose to do so. You can shop for groceries at Mrs Woolly's General Store next door and cook dinner on your second night. We also have pre-prepared BBQ hampers that you could pre-order and have them ready for you upon arrival. Our BBQs are located outside, at the Campfire Shelter, with fantastic surrounding mountain views.
Baby-sitting services can be arranged upon request, speak to our team if you require them.
Make the most out of your time in Glenorchy
To entertain the kids, we have a big outdoor green area where they will love to play, and an indoor area with a selection of board games in case the weather isn't great. We will also arrange a family movie night one evening, with special sweet treats or popcorn (only with parents' consent). Why not get the family together around the sheltered outdoor fireplace, toasting marshmallows, telling stories and watching the sunset behind the magnificent mountains.
Only a short walk from Camp Glenorchy, you will find a big playground, a skatepark and various walking tracks around the lake and the lagoon, where you can spot swans, native birds, and be amazed by the 360 degrees mountain views.
Glenorchy also offers a range of activities that are great for families. Take a look at our Activities page to see all activities available. Our team is happy to advise or book for you at no extra booking cost, contact us and we'll take care of it for you.

We booked the Family Getaway package and highly recommend it. Made for a very relaxing weekend away because breakfast and a dinner were included - one less thing to organise! Loved the accommodation in the ecolodge and learnt alot about sustainable buildings. We stayed for a friend's 40th...
