I'm making my way to the south island with my boyfriend, from 14th June to 22nd June. I'm thinking of doing some walks but I'm not sure if it's advisable in Winter. I've read somewhere that certain walks will be closed or in conducive due to ice. I'll be going to Christchurch (2N), Tekapo (1N), Wanaka (1N), Queenstown (4N). I'm wondering if anyone can recommend any walks in these places that are doable in winter? I'm not big on adventures like bungee jumping etc, but we're definitely looking to do some activities such as walking or cycling. Are there any other activities we can do?
Also, my boyfriend and I are new to skiing. am wondering if there's any place that we can go to that's not packed with skiers where we can pick up skiing?
Your help is greatly appreciated!! Thanks guys!
