Trudging through the snow to return to your cosy cottage sounds like an excellent way to vacate the ordinary. Winter in the Southern Hemisphere is synonymous with crisp, blue skies; long hours of sunlight; gently falling snow; and ice-covered lakes. For a whole host of winter activities, this is also the place to be. Enjoy skiing, ice-skating, and trekking here, as well as visiting the glaciers and caves of this delightful region. The biggest attractions of the area, the Milford and Doubtful Sound glaciers, will look their best when surrounded by a winter’s wonderland of snow-covered trees and land. So explore these snug and restful cottages, and get ready to wrap up in New Zealand this winter with the best winter cottage rentals near Te Anau on offer.
