You can head to Lake Tekapo to marvel at the views and go to Mount Cook to see this incredible mountain. At Lake Tekapo the solitary ‘Church of the Good Shepherd’ takes pride of place against the backdrop of the vivid blue glacier-fed lake.Follow the shores of beautiful Lake Pukaki and through the historic Central Otago region to Queenstown.Queenstown sits on the shore of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu among dramatic alpine ranges; it’s rumoured that gold prospectors - captivated by the majestic beauty of the surrounding mountains and rivers - gave this now cosmopolitan town its name.Queenstown is the home of the ultimate adventure bucket list. There’s skiing in the winter and activities such as bungy jumping, sky diving, canyon swinging, jet boating, horse trekking and river rafting all year round. It has also become a renowned cycling destination, providing everything from easy scenic tracks to backcountry trails, road rides to heli-biking and the Southern Hemisphere’s only gondola accessed downhill mountain biking. On arrival in Queenstown, we head to our hotel & relax after Check-In

Day 4

| Te Anau

After breakfast, we depart to Te Anau. Enroute we experience the peacefulness & tranquility of Doubtful Sound. Sometimes called 'the Sound of Silence', there is a cloistered serenity within Doubtful Sound that contrasts with Milford Sound. The fiord is rich in flora and fauna, New Zealand Fur Seals and Fiordland Crested Penguins can be seen on many of the small islets at the entrance of the fiord. Enjoy 2 boat Cruises included on Lake Manapouri & Doubtful Sound. Later we proceed to Te Anau.

Invercargill has plenty of character and a friendly, laid-back atmosphere - except when it comes to celebrating Southland’s obsession with classic motoring! On arrival, Check-In at Hotel in Invercargill

Day 8

| Dunedin

The drive from Invercargill to Dunedin via the Catlin’s Coast may seem short. However, the Catlins are ecologically unique and still relatively untouched by the large commercial tourist ventures enabling a more low-key nature focussed experience. Native coastal bush and forest, waterways, beaches, birds and sealife combine with the coast’s temperamental weather to make your visit to the South a memorable one. On arrival in Dunedin, guest can proceed directly to Larnach Castle & Gardens. Larnach Castle is New Zealand’s only castle situated on the Otago Peninsula & is located around 30 mins drive from Dunedin.
