Christchurch to Franz Josef Glacier
Your adventure kicks off in Christchurch heading for the dizzying heights of Arthur’s Pass and through the stunning snow-capped Southern Alps. After a quick stop off at beautiful Hokitika we will arrive at the gateway to glacier county - Franz Josef.
Franz Josef Glacier
Crampons at the ready, Franz Josef could be the most beautiful place you'll ever set your eyes on. Explore the stunning formations made over thousands of years, where you can hike, helicopter - or both! Want something at a lower altitude? Quad bike, kayak or relax in glacier hot pools, before kicking back with a cold drink to soak it all in.
Franz Josef to Queenstown
Prepare to be dazzled as we travel along rugged coastline beside ancient rainforests, icy glaciers, and crashing waterfalls as we head over Haast Pass. We take a break in picturesque Wanaka, before landing in the adventure capital of the world - Queenstown.
Coronet Peak, Queenstown
Spectacular roller coaster terrain makes Coronet Peak one of New Zealand's most exciting ski destinations. The field is wide and sunny with an astounding variety of runs, suitable for first time skiers or boarders right up to the most experienced. After spending the day on the slopes, kick back with a beer, drop into a party or devour NZ’s famous burger - the Fergburger.
The Remarkables, Queenstown
The Remarks (as it’s known to the locals) is set in a vast natural amphitheatre with wide open trails, spectacular views, untouched snow, sun-soaked chutes and unforgettable runs. Queenstown's highest ski field, 1943m, The Remarkables is great for first timers to seasoned skiers and snowboarders!
Queenstown to Mt Cook
After breakfast, we'll depart Queenstown to check out the iconic Aoraki, Mt. Cook, New Zealand’s highest peak. The mountain stands at a mind-numbing 3,724 metres, but don’t worry we won’t be climbing it – there are plenty of short walks and glacier hikes around. Then spend the night stargazing in this beautiful National Park.
Mt Cook to Christchurch
Discover the turquoise waters of Lake Tekapo at one of New Zealand’s most insta-worthy spots. Then it's back to where it all began in Christchurch where our epic journey comes to an end around New Zealand's South Island. Fear not, we’ll say our goodbyes, hug it out and leave with stacks of great memories.
