Travelling from New Zealand

Air New Zealand and Air Canada fly direct to Canada

Wednesday, December 22, 2021, 5:00 PM (MST)

Rules posted on the Government of Canada website change almost daily and we expect more adjustments and announcements in the days ahead. Simply, travel comes with risk at this time, and travellers need to be prepared for the situation on arrival to be different from what they may have expected.

We understand that many travellers arriving at Panorama's gateway, Calgary International Airport (YYC), are now being tested for COVID-19 at point of entry. Travel partners tell us that 100% of arrivals from the United Kingdom and several European countries are receiving tests, with results taking between 24-hours and 36-hours.

This known, testing is random and the ability to continue with travel plans depends on whether a test is administered. 

It's a bit like Wanaka. A bit like Ohakune. And there's never a closed day.

New Zealanders feel right at home Panorama! The difference? The mountain is bigger, the snow is deeper, the weather is better and you sleep right beside the lifts. When your legs can't take another run, relax in your apartment right on the mountain and watch the perfect powder snow fall outside.

Book with the experts. Book with confidence!

Panorama Mountain Resort travels to New Zealand every year to meet with guests looking for a world-class destination that's a little off the well-worn path.
