Itinerary

Day 1: Christchurch to Fox Glacier

An early departure from Christchurch this morning bound for the stunning scenery of the wild west coast. Hang out in Hokitika for whitebait fritters and pounamu (jade) shopping, then take your best photography shot of NZ's two tallest mountain peaks reflected in Lake Matheson for the #picoftheday. Excited? You should be.  

 

Day 2: Fox Glacier To Queenstown

Today's your chance to walk on water. Well, frozen glacial water to be precise. Scale a mountain in minutes to get amongst ethereal ice caves and formations. With barely enough time to let your heart rate slow, we journey back through the mountains past Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea. Feel your pulse start to quicken as we roll into Queenstown.  

 

Day 3: Queenstown

Here's some basic math: Queenstown has over 220 activities. You have two days. No rush. This lakeside city has adrenaline on tap and will match any adventure you had in mind and then throw a Fergburger (amazing Queenstown burger place) in there for good measure. Get your fix with a bungy jump, a canyon swing, Shotover Jet boat ride, horse riding, zipling, skydiving - the options are endless. If you're bored here, there's something wrong. Need some time out? Head to the Kiwi Birdlife Park, or kick back with a local pinot.  

 

Day 4: Queenstown

Free day, take two. Get your adrenaline fix with canyoning, skydiving, hang gliding, the list goes on and on.  

 

Day 5: Queenstown including Milford Sound Visit

By now you might be becoming a little desensitised to the otherworldly beauty of NZ but when you see the Fjords for the first time, it's okay to enter a total Instagram meltdown! Carved by glaciers during the ice age, the Milford Sound comes complete with seals, dolphins and thundering waterfalls. Steeped in Maori myth, this is a history and geology lesson rolled into one, minus the homework.  

 

Day 6: Queenstown to Lake Ohau

Back in the heyday of Arrowtown, everyone was here for the gold. Recharge your batteries with a bite to eat and wander around the quaint, charming shops then zigzag across the five bridges that span the ever-changing Arrow River by mountain bike. Test your nerves on the suspension bridge then chill out by the crystal clear river waters while you catch your breath. Cue relaxation and a chance to practice your stone-skimming skills in Lake Ohau.  

 

Day 7: Lake Ohau to Christchurch Via Mt Cook Village

Lap up Lake Pukaki under the shadow of Mt Cook. It's about as Kiwi as 'fush and chups' (fish and chips with a local accent). Then shift into sheep country, where these furry things outnumber humans 12:1. It makes sense that today includes the Church of the Good Shepherd, a monument to the faithful sheepdog. Afterwards, it's back to into the city of Churches as our trip winds to a close.
