Day 1: Christchurch to Lake Ohau via Lake Tekapo
Christchurch what’s up? New Zealand’s South Island is the home to adventure, adrenaline and good times and we’re here to take it all on. We’ll stop off to see the intense milky blue waters of glacially-fed Lake Tekapo.
Onto Lake Ohau, with its glorious views of Mt. Cook. Yet another swoon-worthy location where you’ll have to pick that jaw up off the ground.
Day 2: Lake Ohau to Te Anau via Arrowtown
Arriving in the stunning lakeside town of Te Anau, why not take a guided jet boat trip to Fiordland National Park? From Te Anau through Lake Manapouri, it’s an exhilirating way to soak up the scenery. You can also take a trip to the ethereal glow worm caves or simply cycle the gorgeous trails through native bush.
Day 3: Te Anau to Queenstown via Milford Sound
Welcome to New Zealand’s most stunning attraction, with a magical combination of mountain peaks, forest-clad cliffs and deep dark waters. We take an included cruise of the fiord and experience the beauty of this pristine destination by boat, the best way to see Milford Sound in all its glory. Later, we head to our home for the night in Queenstown.

Day 7: Queenstown to Franz Josef Glacier via Wanaka
Enjoying our scenic drive we’ll stop for lunch in Wanaka, a pretty ski resort town situated on a lake front and dwarfed by mountains. This town is fast becoming one of NZ’s most popular spots, and a trip to the ‘Dough Bin’ for a luscious pie should be high on the list today.
Playing host tonight is the town of Franz Josef, home to some of NZ’s finest natural beauty with bushlands and glaciers that almost reach the sea. Tomorrow we’ll be out and about making the most of it – who’s excited?
Day 8: Franz Josef Glacier
Day 9: Franz Josef Glacier to Christchurch via Hokitika
In the gold rush town of Hokitika we’ll watch authentic carvers get to work on green jade and take a look at traditional Maori art. Back on the coach we’re coastline bound to one of the islands most jaw-droppingly beautiful spots…
Take in the beautiful scenery as we wind our way across the highest and most spectacular mountain pass across the Southern Alps.
Arriving into Christchurch marks the end of our adventure (sob). NZ – you’ve been real.
