Itinerary

Christchurch to Fox Glacier

The Canterbury Plains make for pretty window views today – but we’ll be in mountain territory in no time! We’ll make a pit stop by the stunning Lake Matheson en route to Fox Glacier. Fingers crossed for good weather so you can see New Zealand’s two tallest mountain peaks reflected in the mirror-like lake.

Fox Glacier to Queenstown

Hit up NZ's most famous glacier with an optional guided terminal face walk or heli-hike. Then, we’ll journey past Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea as we roll into Queenstown. Get your bearings on an orientation tour, then be free! The nightlife here is unreal. Trust us.

Queenstown 

Queenstown has sooo many adrenalin-fuelled activities to try. Question is, how many can you fit into your time here? You could try bungy jumping, a canyon swing, skydiving, hiking or the skyline gondola. Hungry after all of that adventuring? Don’t miss Fergburger, Queenstown’s famous burger joint. The queues are worth it.

Queenstown

It’s time for the main event! We’re headed to the unbelievable beauty of New Zealand’s southwestern fjords for a cruise through Milford Sound. This place comes complete with thundering waterfalls and towering cliffs that’ll blow your mind. Keep your eyes peeled for the resident seals and dolphins too (cute).

Queenstown

Our hot tip for your last day here? Sign up for a jet boat ride or some rafting (both optional). For dinner, why not try the yummy pizzas at Winnie’s before a final night out on the town? Let’s gooo!

Queenstown to Lake Ohau

Hop on a bike and ride past mountains, lakes and rivers in Arrowtown on the most spectacular ride on the Queenstown trail. Crossing the 80 m suspension bridge, get ready for open farmland and stunning views.

Lake Ohau to Christchurch

It may be our last day, but there’s still plenty of time to squeeze in a visit to a real working farm. We’ll tuck into afternoon tea with the owners before moving on to Christchurch to say our goodbyes.
