We begin in Christchurch; a city which has recovered with great fortitude from the earthquake of 2011. Here we will meet with those who have spent some time in the North Island and we’ll discover the city of Christchurch together. We travel to Franz Josef Glacier via Arthurs Pass and the west coast route. We’ll walk around the amazing Lake Matheson with its incredible view of the Southern Alps. We also explore the valleys leading up to Fox and Franz Josef glaciers. From Wanaka, we travel on to Queenstown. From here you’ll have the option to do the Milford Track instead of walking from Queenstown. Our journey then takes us to Te Anau in the Southern Lake District, from where we cruise on Milford Sound. We head back north to Twizel, a gateway to the peaks and trails of Mount Cook. This really is a holiday of a lifetime. Please be aware that this holiday can have a total group size of up to 22 people. We also have options to walk the Milford Track, please see details below. Milford Track Option The Milford Track is world famous and the finest way to walk to Milford Sound. The first day begins with a boat journey from Te Anau Downs and a 1.6 km walk followed by a short nature walk. The following day we walk up the Clinton valley around 16 km with 200m of ascent. The next day we reach the head of the Clinton Valley and walk over the Mackinnon pass around 15km but with 720m of ascent. Please contact our Sales and Reservations department for a quote.
