Central Otago is truly a summer playground. It’s hot and dry and there is an unlimited choice of things to do during the long daylight hours. It’s a holiday destination loved by people of all ages and stages many of whom return year after year. Once you’ve visited you’ll understand why.
Central Otago is well known for its orchards and vineyards - in April & May visitors will witness harvest time on the vineyards and a blaze of vibrant colour as the fruit trees and vines turn colours of fiery orange and red, golden yellow and rich brown.
Winter is time to celebrate with crisp clear days, snow capped mountains dotting the horizon and if you are lucky stunning hoar frosts where the land and everything on it is crystallised into mystical, magical apparitions. Experience the unique activities of winter or retreat to a cosy fire with your favourite glass of pinot.
