What people say

"Picture yourself on the slopes, surrounded by the pristine, snow-covered peaks. It's a playground for skiers and snowboarders of all levels, with its pristine runs catering to beginners and experts alike. The sheer thrill of gliding down the slopes amidst this majestic scenery is an experience you won't soon forget. Yet, Cardrona isn't just about snow sports; it's a year-round wonder. In the summer, it transforms into a serene paradise for hikers and mountain bikers. The picturesque landscape provides the perfect backdrop for unforgettable adventures, with trails that wind through lush alpine meadows. And let's not forget the charm of the historic Cardrona Hotel, a true Kiwi icon. Enjoy a warm meal and a pint of local craft beer while soaking up the welcoming atmosphere. This is not just a resort; it's a piece of New Zealand history. Price: Varies"
"( 58km from Queenstown ) Getting to Cardrona is easy, no matter where you’re staying! Located in the heart of the Southern Alps, we’re a short drive from Wānaka, Queenstown & Arrowtown. Our aim is to reduce emissions so we encourage carpooling, or even better, let us drive you – with regular daily buses from Queenstown & Wānaka we can get you right to the front door & onto the snow faster!"
"One of New Zealand's most popular ski fields! The road to Cadrona is a windy, gravel road so be careful driving. There are also shuttle bus options leaving from Wanaka for $20NZD if this is a better option for you."
