Drive an Aston Martin on ice in New Zealand

Aston Martin's Art of Living program lets guests test the performance and handling of some of their most powerful cars on challenging icy terrain.

Aston Martin is giving motorists the opportunity to put their skills to the ultimate test, driving some of the brand’s most luxurious vehicles over the challenging sub-zero, snow- and ice-covered terrain at New Zealand’s Southern Hemisphere Proving Ground.  Guests can experience the performance and handling power of the new Vanquish S, DB11, Rapide S Shadow Edition and V8 Vantage S under the expert guidance of professional driving instructors who will show participants how to drift over the icy landscape.

In addition to driving, guests will have the chance to try a number of adrenaline-charged activities during the three-day trip including canyon swinging, skydiving, jet boating, skiing and horse trekking.  Guests will stay at luxury Queenstown retreat Millbrook, nestled within the Southern Alps and set on 500 acres of fairways.

There are four Art of Living trips available in early August 2017. Prices start from NZ$9,495 A$8,883 per person (twin share).

Weather to go

New Zealand’s climate is largely temperate, and in some places the weather can go from one season (e.g. sunny) to another (e.g. rainy) in the space of a day! The inland alpine areas can be as cold as minus 10 degrees celsius and snowy in winter (June - August), and the ski season begins in June, running through September and sometimes into October. 

High season is during summer, from December to February, with temperatures between 20 and 30 degrees celsius, and the UV rays are strong - best to pack sunscreen if you’re travelling there in summer.
