What To Expect:
New Zealand Travel Tour Highlights
This trip focuses on the highlights of the South Island, considered by most New Zealanders to be more rugged and possessing more spectacular scenery than the North Island. Begin your exploration in Christchurch, a charming city with a distinctively English feel. From here, you will have a chance to visit Kaikoura to see the famous whales and dolphins that frolic offshore. Next, you will enjoy the TranzAlpine train to Greymouth, where you will begin your self-drive along the rugged West Coast to Franz Josef Glacier for a heli-hike excursion. Visit the historic Arrowtown and Lake Wanaka en route to Queenstown, the self-described “adventure capital” of the country. Take a half-day tour of Queenstown and the surrounding area as well as a scenic flight to Milford Sound, where you will enjoy a picnic lunch on board your sailing vessel and admire the stunning natural beauty of one of New Zealand‟s most famous attractions.
