From snow-capped mountain peaks and turquoise-hued lakes to charismatic towns and happening cities, you’ll be spoiled for choice on this 18-day Globus tour capturing the best of both the North and South Islands.
A journey overflowing with pinch-me moments, you’ll be awestruck as you embark on an overnight cruise in Milford Sound - an area described famously by Rudyard Kipling as one of the wonders of the world; delight in the dazzling sights of Franz Josef as you follow the trail of its renowned glacier; and marvel at the panoramic views of the Canterbury Plains and Southern Alps as you journey onboard the famous TranzAlpine train.
Prepare for adventure as you make your way up the country. Walk amongst towering forests at the Redwoods Treewalk in Rotorua; discover subterranean tunnels and glittering glowworms at Waitomo Caves; and go sand-boarding or digging for shellfish in the Far North’s Ninety Mile Beach.
You’ll also have plenty of opportunity to tantalise your taste-buds throughout this tour. In Wanaka, make a stop at Cadrona Distillery to sample its award-winning premium spirits; sip some of Marlborough’s finest drops at Wairau River Wines; and enjoy a celebratory dinner with 360-degree views atop Auckland’s iconic Sky Tower. This unforgettable New Zealand tour with an extension to the beautiful Bay of Islands is a holiday you will not want to miss!
