Guided Walking Holidays - New Zealand’s South Island 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 Fox Glacier via the famous Pancake Rocks blow-holes. At Fox we walk along Gillespies Beach with the chance of sighting fur seals and dusky dolphins, and take in the incredible view€ross Lake Matheson to the Southern Alps. Then on to Wanaka and Mount Aspiring National Park to walk on the parks exhilarating trails. Te Anau is in the Southern Lake District, from where we cruise on Milford Sound. From here youll have the option to do the Milford Track instead of walking from Queenstown. The journey over Haast Pass brings us to Queenstown and the setting, on the shores of Lake Wakatipu with the craggy Remarkables as a back drop is sensational. On our final night here, we will have dinner in the famous Skyline Restaurant. We head back north to spend two nights in Twizel, a gateway to the peaks and trails of Mount Cook. Here we will enjoy the last of our spectacular walks. This really is a holiday of a lifetime. We also have options to walk the Milford Track.
