New Zealand South Island Adventure


This trip showcases the magnificent South Island, packed with some of the world’s most stunning scenery. With action-packed days and star-sprayed nights, you’ll come away exhilarated by the wonders of this wild island nation.

 

You’ve never had an incredible introduction to landscapes and wildlife as diverse as this. We’ve lined up exciting activities around New Zealand’s Southern Island that will take you deep into its rugged territory of national parks, sounds, and white-water rivers. And, because everyone needs some breathing room, we’ve left space in the itinerary for you to explore your own pastimes around Kiwiland or simply enjoy your accommodations’ amenities. What you can expect—and we’ll deliver—is a magical sense of the natural wonders only found in this part of the planet.

Your trip begins in the lush mountainside town of Blenheim, in the wine-growing region of Marlborough. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, you’ll be hosted in the Marlborough Lodge, a restored convent with a rich history that dates back to 1901. After getting settled, a well-respected Maori couple will take you on personalized tours of the area, sharing their stories and gathering shellfish to try on along the way. Enjoy lunch at a site visited by Captain Cook during his travels.

After taking a day to explore Blenheim on your own, your journey will continue in Te Anau, with a sojourn at the Fiordland Lodge, a rustic but modern property offering beautiful views of Lake Te Anau. Mingle over a whiskey by the fireside after a day of fly-fishing and jet boating on the Waiau River, one of the filming locations for The Lord of the Rings.

The next few days feature more adventures on the water, including an overnight excursion on the grand yet remote Doubtful Sound, an area teeming with wildlife and surrounded by massive mountains. At night, look up into the clear skies and stargaze from the sound. The following morning you’re off to Queenstown, where you’ll stay at the elegant Eichardt’s Private Hotel and delve one last day into everything this picturesque lakefront city has to offer.

One of the highlights of this trip is the Siberia Wilderness Adventure, an excursion that will take you through mountains, over glaciers, and down powerful rivers. It begins with a helicopter ride to survey some of the most stunning alpine sites, is followed by a invigorating hike through the Siberia Valley, and ends with an exciting jet-boat ride down the Wilkin and Makaroa Rivers.

Your tour will leave you with memories of New Zealand that last forever. You can depart today and travel back to the States. Or, since you’ve already made it this far to the Southern Hemisphere, why not extend your vacation by a few days and check out one of our fantastic outposts in Fiji!
