Few destinations stir the imagination quite like New Zealand. The setting of countless Hollywood films; a wild land of towering mountain peaks, deep glacial lakes, forested valleys and undulating grasslands. It’s every bit as spectacular in the flesh. Are you game to experience its wonders?

This “epic” 10 day tour of New Zealand’s South Island makes that easy, taking in iconic sights from Christchurch to Queenstown, Lake Wanaka to Franz Josef Glacier. See how the ‘garden city’ of Christchurch has adapted and rebuilt following the 2011 earthquake; marvel at the turquoise waters of Lakes Pukaki and Ohau; view the picture-perfect Church of the Good Shepherd on the shores of Lake Tekapo; and feel dwarfed by the immensity of the southern alps. Enjoy two nights at leisure in the adventure capital of Queenstown, with optional activities from a Milford Sound cruise to a ‘Lord of the Rings’ 4WD tour available to help you get more out of your stay. You’ll also get to e-bike around Wanaka, visit the remarkable Franz Josef Glacier, and travel onboard the famous TranzAlpine railway from Greymouth to Christchurch. This amazing package includes eight nights quality hotel and lodge accommodation, a one night glamping experience at historic Criffel Station, 11 meals and more!
