Your South Island New Zealand trip will begin with pickup from your pre-arranged location. We will start the seven-day private tour at Christchurch where we will spend some time exploring the area. From there we will go to the very romantic Hanmer Springs. Here, you can enjoy soaking in the hot mineral pools.
From Hanmer, we travel across to the very scenic west coast of the South Island, stopping at the Fox and Franz Josef glacier en route – this is certainly on the list of New Zealand places to visit. See the glaciers up close by either walking to them, or if you are feeling more adventurous, take a helicopter trip. You will love this adventure!
We will travel down the West Coast with nights in Wanaka, Queenstown and Te Anua. The scenery will blow your mind! We then visit the lakes (Queenstown) before heading out for a 2-hour Milford Sound cruise through this breathtaking fiord, one of New Zealand’s top travel destinations. Then back through the lakes district before heading up the centre of the Island to visit Mount Cook, New Zealand’s highest mountain. We will also visit Lake Tekapo and the High Country Salmon Farm.
We complete the trip with the drive back to Christchurch.
