Are you looking for something invigorating to excite you this winter? Join us on Waiheke Island and celebrate life in New Zealand by wining, dining… and taking a refreshing mid-winter dip!
Bring your crazy friends and your best fancy dress to take a dive for charity in the Ice Splash, or push the barrow out and swim the Ice Cube 250m. If your competitive edge is busting to break the ice, take on The Icicle 750m or The Iceberg 2000m events! Embracing both Little Oneroa and Oneroa beaches, these 750m or 2000m swims will be enough to test your mettle.
Warm-up quickly after your swim in a Hot Spring Spa on Oneroa Beach followed by a hot shower, change in heated change tents and then enjoy the carnival atmosphere with much needed L’affare coffee, food and music.
Commemorative completion medals for 250m, 750m & 2000m swims, fun spot prizes, and cash awards are all part of this winter spectacle! Stay the weekend to savour fine dining experiences at exclusive vineyards and explore the island’s magical sights, boutique shops and wonderful walking trails. Or, make it a fun-filled day trip – either way it will brighten up your winter!
