Discover extraordinary treasures and dramatic extremes on this comprehensive and relaxing small group tour that reveals the hidden gems of New Zealand’s South Island.
From Wellington, “the coolest little capital in the world” (as voted by Lonely Planet), travel by Interislander ferry to the picturesque fishing village of Picton before cruising out to your remote lodge located in the stunning Kenepuru Sound. There is time to enjoy some of the many nature and cultural based activities at the small coastal town of Kaikoura before making your way south to the world-heritage listed Mt Cook National Park. Get up close to icebergs on your Tasman Glacier boat expedition and take the opportunity to take a flight over the alps by ski-plane or helicopter. Awesome Milford Sound awaits you and for those that wish, upgrade to the optional overnight cruises that are available in Milford or Doubtful Sounds. Enjoy dramatic scenery as you travel to the twin glaciers of Fox and Franz Josef, before returning to the garden city of Christchurch onboard the award-winning TranzAlpine train, rated as one of the most scenic rail journeys in the world.
