After exploring the city, they head to the South Island, to Nelson and the stunning Abel Tasman, before seeing marine life up close and personal in Kaikoura. Then it’s off to Christchurch to punt on the Avon, Lake Tekapo for stargazing, before visiting the adventure capital Queenstown, and beautiful neighbouring Lake Wanaka.
The trip ends with a visit to the awe-inspiring Fox and Franz Josef glaciers, followed by a scenic train journey across the South Island back to Christchurch.
