New Zealand epitomizes the spirit of adventure! This land-based tour of the South Island will show you the best this beautiful country has to offer from helicopter glacier tours to vineyards to thrilling jet boat rides through the narrow river valleys. Our adventure begins in Christchurch and continues to the heart of the Southern Alps via Arthur’s Pass. We traverse from the snow-capped mountains to the lush rainforests along the west coast. This transition is akin to entering a primeval land, into true wilderness in a short amount of time. The experience continues to Fiordland National Park with an overnight wilderness cruise into rugged Kawaru Gorge. The scenery here is breathtaking, only getting better towards the approach to Milford Sound. The cruise ends in the Gibbston Valley where the Central Otago vineyards abound. After disembarking the tour continues to explore gorgeous Queenstown. Surrounded by majestic mountains and Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is known for it’s natural beauty, wine and fine cuisine. The adventure wraps up in Wellington for one more day of relaxing in this truly beautiful part of the world!
