Tour Description

Come and join us on our 15 Day Ultimate South Island Tour. Amazing scenery awaits at every turn as we make our way around this stunning island.

Beginning in Wellington on the North Island, we board the famous Interislander ferry for one of the world's great ferry trips across Cook Strait to the Marlborough Sounds.

From there we head to Nelson, located on the shores of Tasman Bay, and home to a thriving arts scene. Highly recommended is the optional day tour to the nearby Abel Tasman National Park.

Your next stop is the wild West Coast. Home to rugged coastlines, raging rivers, and huge glaciers, the West Coast will be one of the highlights of your tour.

Next we head inland to the Southern Lakes region, home to the beautiful lakeside towns of Wanaka and Queenstown. Towering peaks, deep clear lakes, and an almost endless range of activities await. In Wanaka you have a choice of a lake cruise or a thrilling jetboat ride. And in Queenstown we make our way high above town on board the Skyline Gondola for dinner at the Skyline Restaurant.

Of course, no South Island trip would be complete without visiting New Zealand's number one attraction, Milford Sound, and here we take you on an overnight cruise, allowing you lots of time to see this incredible attraction.

Also on our itinerary are Dunedin, Mt Cook (where we cruise amongst icebergs on the Tasman Glacier Experience), and the South Islands largest city, Christchurch.

Come and join us and see the best of the South Island in air conditioned comfort.
