Tour Itinerary EXPAND ALL

Your adventure kicks off at 11am where we depart from Christchurch International Airport heading for the dizzying heights of Arthur’s Pass and the stunning snow-capped Southern Alps. Then we’ll hop off the beautiful Hokitika and explore the world famous Hokitika Gorge. Before cruising over the spectacular scenery and arriving at Franz Josef – the gateway to Glacier country. It wouldn’t be a Wild Kiwi tour without seeing one, so time permitting, we’ll pop into the National Kiwi centre after arrival.


Boutique accommodation

After breakfast, it’s ice o’clock. We’ll hit the Franz Josef and Fox glaciers where you can hike, helicopter, or both. These stunning formations made over thousands of years, or as Maori legend has it, from a lost lover’s tears, will have you weeping with joy. The hue, changes from turquoise to deepest blue as you hover above, or hike across them. Afterwards, celebrate your cool adventure with some ice in your drink.


Boutique accommodation


Optional paid activity: Franz Josef Glacier Heli-Hike

After breakfast, prepare to be dazzled as we take one of most spectacular natural drives in the world. Travelling along mile after mile of rugged coastline, we hit the Haast Pass where ancient rainforests, icy blue glaciers and booming waterfalls collide to create a stunning kaleidoscope of natural scenery. Catch your breath – we’ve just landed in beautiful Queenstown – the adrenaline capital of New Zealand!


Boutique accommodation

Action awaits. Go off-piste and make up your own itinerary. Choose from adrenaline pumping activities like bungee jumping, canyon swings or quad biking. Maybe hit the trails for a mountain hike, or cruise around the fiord at UNESCO-listed Milford Sound. Here, mountains rise, dolphins leap, whales blow and water tumbles. After all that, kick back with a beer, drop into a party or devour NZ’s most famous burger – the Fergburger!


Boutique accommodation


Optional paid activities: bungee jumping, canyon swings, quad biking, paragliding, Milford Sound cruise

Today we take things down a gear, visiting historic Arrowtown en-route to the laid-back lakeside vibes of Wanaka. Have a go at waterskiing, kayaking or wakeboarding. Land lovers can hike it, or bike it, on one of many waterside trails. Then Cardona, where we’ll sink a beer at one of New Zealand’s oldest pub. Refreshed, we will slalom down the Crown Range Road back to Queenstown to chill, or hit the nightlife.


Boutique accommodation

Don’t feel blue about leaving Queenstown, we’re off to see another shade – the stunning turquoise waters of Lake Tekapo. It’s legendary colour comes from glaciers depositing minerals over thousands of years. Splash about in the flower flanked water and as the sun sets, the view gets even better. Spend the rest of the day at the beautiful Tekapo springs or hire a bike and go on an adventure. Lake Tekapo has been declared a Star Reserve, so as night falls we’ll celebrate the last night of the tour raising a glass to the skies.


Boutique accommodation


Optional paid activity: Lake Tekapo Scenic Flight

After a final brekky, it’s back to where we began, Christchurch. The South Island’s biggest city is a vibrant, creative centre badly damaged back in 2011’s earthquake, but through Kiwi spirit it has been rebuilt to its former glories. Check out the cool pop-up cafés and grab a souvenir from one of the quirky shops. Then, sadly, the epic journey is at an end. Fear not, we’ll hug it out and leave with stacks of great memories.
