ITINERARY

DAY-01: MANILA TO NEW ZEALAND FLIGHT

DAY-03: CHRISTCHURCH – FRANZ JOSEF  (B. D)

Your South Island New Zealand Tour starts on a literal high as you jump aboard the TranzAlpine train, crossing the Canterbury Plains towards the Southern Alps and Arthur’s Pass. This is one of the world’s most scenic rail experiences, through tunnels and over viaducts with panoramic views of snow- capped peaks, icy rivers, beech forests, gorges and river valleys. At the other end of the line is Hokitika, the home of pounamu (native greenstone or jade).

Just when you thought your day couldn’t get any better, Franz Josef town twinkles on the horizon. This afternoon, you may choose to fly over Franz Josef Glacier/Kā Roimata o Hine Hukatere.

Overnight at the hotel.

Hotel: Scenic Hotel Franz Josef Glacier

DAY-04: FRANZ JOSEF –  QUEENSTOWN  (B)

Over the Haast Pass, alpine drama awaits. The Southern Lakes deserve their name: there are almost more waterways here than you can count. First up there’s lovely Lake Wanaka, with its Instagrammable shoreline of poplars and willows. Followed by oh-so-blue Lake Hawea and Lake Dunstan, where you’ll pause to refuel on flavour-packed stonefruit. As tempting as it is to linger in Arrowtown’s movie-set-like streets, lined with trees and character-filled boutiques, Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables await in Queenstown.

Hotel: Copthorne Hotel and Resort

DAY-05: QUEENSTOWN FREE TIME  (B,D)  

The adventure capital of New Zealand doesn’t disappoint when it comes to activities that are fast and furious. Take your optional tour pick.

Wherever you wander, make sure you’re back in time to glide across Lake Wakatipu aboard the historic TSS Earnslaw to Walter Peak High Country Farm for a gourmet barbecue Highlight Dinner.

Hotel: Copthorne Hotel and Resort

DAY-06: QUEENSTOWN – TE ANAU (B, D)

Nature rules today as you motor from the Mirror Lakes through the Cleddau Valley. But this is just a teaser of what’s to come: World Heritage listed Milford Sound. A Milford Sound cruise across this dreamy expanse will give you goosebumps, its string of waterfalls creating a misty curtain across sheer escarpments. Look out for dolphins and fur seals – they’re a common sight here. The road back through Fiordland National Park is an intoxicating union of beech forests, alluvial flats, meadows and gin-clear rivers, carving up the countryside en route to Te Anau. And just when you thought things couldn’t get any more magical, nestled on the edge of the South Island’s largest lake, Te Anau is the perfect place to savour some peace and relaxation after the spectacle of the day.

Hotel: Distinction Luxmore Hotel

DAY-07: TE ANAU – DUNEDIN (B)

The South Island’s biggest lake is a blissful place for an invigorating morning walk. If it doesn’t set your pulse racing, than your outlook of rolling green hills dotted with doe-eyed sheep surely will. This pastoral countryside surrounds the city of Dunedin. While away the afternoon in atmospheric art-lined alleys or sipping a lager or two in Speight’s Brewery (a national institution). Or venture further afield to discover the wildlife that thrives in this pretty pocket of the country – fur seals and penguins among them.

Hotel: Scenic Hotel Dunedin City

DAY-08: DUNEDIN – OMARAMA  (B.D)

Did you know that Dunedin takes its name from the Scottish word for Edinburgh? The city nods to its European heritage at Larnach Castle – the only one of its kind in the country – as well as through the grounds of Otago University and along the city’s main George Street. Explore at your leisure, before venturing on to New Zealand’s oldest public gardens and grand limestone buildings at Oamaru.

Hotel: Heritage Gateway Hotel

DAY-09: OMARAMA – CHRISTCHURCH  (B,D)

If there’s a lake with a more vivid turquoise colour than Tekapo, we’re yet to see it. It’s made even more dramatic by snow-capped mountains, the quaint Church of the Good Shepherd and atmospheric towns that surround. Your Indoor Dark Sky Astronomy Experience at Tekapo, hosted by passionate guides, will forever change the way you see the night sky. You’ll see for yourself it may be one of the quietest spots on the planet, yet it has one of the busiest skies in the universe. Back on earth, you’re becoming reacquainted with Christchurch, your in- the-know Travel Director pointing out the city’s miraculous transformation over the last decade. Local spirit is strong here.

Hotel: Ibis Hotel Christchurch

DAY-10: DEPARTURE CHRISTCHURCH  (B)

If you feel like you’ve only seen the tip of the South Island’s iceberg, you’d be correct. This beguiling part of the country could keep travel enthusiasts entertained for eons. Prepare for Airport Transfer for return flight.
