Itinerary

Welcome to Auckland

After settling into your hotel, you’ll have time to explore Auckland independently. This evening, a Welcome Reception is followed by dinner with your Travel Director.









Auckland - Rotorua

Begin your day with a city tour, then trace the path of the Waikato River to the Waitomo Caves to explore their amazing Glowworm Grotto. Travel on to Rotorua and take an orientation tour of the city, where you’ll enjoy spectacular views of Lake Rotorua.

Rotorua

Relax or explore Rotorua at your own pace. Perhaps visit Rainbow Springs Nature Park, to observe many species of the native fauna of New Zealand including the country’s iconic kiwi. Later, experience the multi-awarding-winning Agrodome Farm Show. Another option is Te Puia thermal reserve. Enjoy an evening of fun and laughter and gain an insight into traditional Māori culture followed by a delicious Hangi Highlight Dinner at the Tamaki Māori Village.

Rotorua - Wellington

Journey through tall pine forests and verdant farmland to spectacular Huka Falls and serene Lake Taupo. Drive along the shores of New Zealand’s biggest lake through the alpine scenery of Mt. Ruapehu, Tongariro National Park and the dairy farms of Manawatu. Then follow the Kapiti Coast to Wellington for a city orientation tour.

Wellington - Picton

Enjoy a sightseeing tour of Wellington, and then visit Te Papa Museum of New Zealand, where you’ll have time to explore its nature, art, history and cultural heritage. Cruise across the Cook Strait and explore the maze of inlets of Queen Charlotte Sound. Later you’ll travel to the seaside village of Picton and take a tour of the city before dinner.

Picton - Christchurch

Travel to Kaikoura, where sperm whales can often be seen not far from shore (an optional whale-watching flight is available). Continue along the Pacific Ocean coast, then across fertile farmlands to Christchurch.

Christchurch - Omarama

After a morning at leisure, travel through verdant countryside to serene Lakes Pukaki and Tekapo, and view the iconic Church of the Good Shepherd before continuing to the awe-inspiring Aoraki/Mt. Cook National Park.

Omarama - Dunedin

Visit to the Waitaki Hydro Power Scheme, an intricate series of interconnected lakes and canals, and the monumental spillway of the nearby Benmore Dam. Then travel to the historic town of Oamaru, with its elegant tree-lined streets and celebrated white limestone buildings. Continue to Dunedin, New Zealand’s southernmost city, where your afternoon is at leisure. You may like to take a wildlife cruise, or ride the historic Taieri Gorge Railway.

Dunedin - Te Anau

This morning you’re free to explore Dunedin at your own pace: you might like to visit stately Larnach Castle. This afternoon, travel through lush green sheep-grazing country on your way to Fiordland National Park and the town of Te Anau. Tonight there’s the option of travelling by boat through the fascinating Te Anau Glowworm Caves (own expense).

Te Anau - Queenstown

Your experience in magnificent Milford Sound is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip. Travel through tall native rainforests and rugged mountains of Fiordland National Park, then cruise the serene waters of this natural wonder. On the way to Queenstown see Mirror Lake, Cleddau Valley, the Chasm, Mitre Peak and Bowen Falls, then travel along the Devil’s Staircase and the shores of Lake Wakatipu. Enjoy an informative orientation tour on arrival.

Queenstown Free Town

Explore New Zealand’s adventure capital at your own pace today. There are jet boat rides, white water rafting and 4WD safaris for the thrill-seekers, and wine tours or intimate cafés for those who enjoy a more leisurely rhythm. Later this afternoon, enjoy a cruise across peaceful Lake Wakatipu aboard the TSS Earnslaw to Walter Peak High Country Farm for a gourmet barbecue Highlight Dinner.

Queenstown - Franz Josef

Your first destination today is the faithfully-restored gold-mining settlement of Arrowtown. Sample luscious stone fruit in Cromwell, and enjoy the serenity of the region’s vivid blue lakes. Drive over spectacular Haast Pass, passing the 96-metre Thunder Creek Falls and stopping for a tranquil rainforest walk on your way to the extraordinary Franz Josef Glacier (an optional scenic flight is available).

Franz Josef - Christchurch

Travel on this morning to Hokitika, home of New Zealand’s famous greenstone. Pounamu (its Māori name) is of great cultural significance in Māori culture and was prized for its strength, durability and beauty. It was used for weapons, tools and personal ornaments, and also denoted great status. Continue to Arthur’s Pass to board the iconic TranzAlpine train and embark on one of the world’s most renowned rail journeys. Pass through magnificent landscapes ranging from the rugged gorges and pristine ice-fed streams and lakes of the Southern Alps to the lush pastureland of the Canterbury Plains. This evening in Christchurch, join your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Farewell Dinner.

Farewell from Christchurch
