The tour

Twelve days on the road travelling to some the most scenic and spectacular areas on the planet. We start and finish in Christchurch, all transfers to and from Christchurch International Airport and your accommodation included. Our tour takes you to the highlights of this beautiful and diverse island, absorbing the most incredible landscape. We keep driving times minimal as this is more to experience the freedom through adventure that awaits you. From the Canterbury Plains, we head to the high country following the Southern Alps stopping in at the turquoise glacial Lake Tekapo. Queenstown and Wanaka, the action towns, are next on the agenda before heading across the Haast Mountain Pass to the Wild West Coast. Glaciers, bush, rugged coastline and mountains follow us north. Murchison the white-water capital greets us with a wilderness adventure looming. Back to the East the mountains creep up to the Coast of Kaikoura, where abundant sea life awaits us. Left mesmerised, exhausted and satisfied Christchurch greats you with the setting sun.
