Welcome to the 7 Day South Island Lick Tour.
If you are looking for maximum thrills and great value for money this short tour could be ideal.
New Zealand's stunning South Island has it all.
Amazing scenery, an endless supply of things to see and do, and a great vibe. And with that in mind, we have developed perhaps the perfect South Island adventure.
Starting and ending in New Zealand's garden city, Christchurch, the 7 Day South Island Lick Tour takes you to some major hot spots, together with some hidden gems that the big tour companies don't visit.
From Christchurch we head south to the turquoise waters of Lake Tekapo. Depending on the time of year, the banks of Lake Tekapo may be covered in colorful lupins or snow. A breathtaking place.
From Lake Tekapo it's off to New Zealand's Adventure Capital, Queenstown. What an amazing place. Surrounded by towering peaks, and built around the shores of a deep dark lake, Queenstown is a fast paced, adrenalin junkies dream. And it's the perfect departure point for an optional Milford Sound tour, a must see on your tour.
From Queenstown it's over the mountains to the pretty lakeside town of Wanaka. Great scenery and lots of eateries and bars opposite the lake make for a relaxing experience.
We then head off the the wild West Coast and glacier country. Franz Josef and Fox glaciers are the only two glaciers (apart from some in Argentina) that terminate in coastal rainforest. Walk to the glacial face at Franz Josef or take an optional heli ice hike for something really special.
From Franz Josef it's "all aboard" the world famous Tranz Alpine train journey. Rated one of the World's best train trips, the Tranz Alpine snakes its way through the Southern Alps as it makes its way to Christchurch. Snow capped peaks, huge river valleys and gorges, viaducts and tunnels are all part of the Tranz Alpine journey.
The 7 Day South Island Lick Tour is the perfect way to see the wonders of the South Island, particularly if your time is limited.
