Your Itinerary

Days 1-3: Temple Basin - Punakaiki - Harihari

Begin with a gentle walk to views of the Southern Alps. Then head to the gorgeous, seaside village of Punakaiki for an optional wildlife zodiac cruise or a hike through unbelievably lush rainforest. Visit Pancake Rocks and Blowholes, explore local art galleries and then hike in the rainforest to the Doughboy. (B/L/D).

Days 4-6: Fox Glacier - Mount Aspiring - Queenstown

Visit the village of Okarito to hike Three Mile Lagoon or sea kayak Okarito Lagoon. At Fox Glacier, an enormous river of ice that snakes through rainforest. Take a five-hour flight-hike-jet boat excursion to explore Mount Aspiring National Park followed by a free day to explore Queenstown, complete with all sorts of active options. (B/L/D).

Days 7-11: Milford or Hollyford Track - Queenstown

Enjoy four days of peace, quiet, exercise, good food, and unbelievable scenery as you walk 33 miles from Lake Te Anau to the extraordinary Milford Sound with only a daypack. Enjoy an early morning boat ride to explore the length of Milford Sound before we depart for Queenstown.

Or hike the less challenging but less-touristed Hollyford Track in the pristine wilderness of Fiordland National Park, where you also enjoy the hospitality of the native Maori people. Hike the Kepler Trail with spectacular views of Lake Ta Anau and the Southern Alps. Follow the Hollyford River to a comfortable wilderness lodge. Conclude with a scenic flight back to Milford Sound. (B/L/D).

Days 12-14: Mount Cook - Christchurch

Make an easy ascent above the tree line to the aptly named Remarkables and move on to Mount Cook for a challenging hike up the main ridge for stunning views of Mueller Glacier and the peaks of the Main Divide. Enjoy a traditional kiwi roast dinner on the final evening. (B/L/D).
