Day 1-2 Christchurch / Franz Josef

You'll be picked up at 7.10am outside the Canterbury museum on Rolleston Avenue and head over to Franz Josef. Spend the next day experiencing everything Franz Josef has to offer! On an Ice Explorer trip, you'll take to the skies on a helicopter ride into the Pinnacles area of the glacier. Your guide will take you over the ice and talk you through the amazing environmental changes that have occurred over the last few years. After exploring, warm up with a soak in the hot pools - you'll never feel more relaxed.

Day 3 Wanaka

Be ready to leave at 9am - it's all go on this tour! First stop is Lake Matheson for a walk around the amazing mirror lake before visiting the town of Fox Glacier. Travel through the mountainous Haast pass and on to the beautiful Lake Hawea . Get your camera ready - you're going to need it! You'll arrive into Wanaka in the afternoon, with some time to explore this activity-filled town.

Day 4-6 Queenstown

You'll have a bit of a sleep in today - you're off at 10.30am. You'll have the morning to relax and take in the incredible views of Lake Wanaka but, if you're feeling more adventurous, there's always skydiving before you travel to Queenstown. Once in the city, stop off at the famous AJ Hackett bungy site where you can learn all about the history of bungy jumping in New Zealand. Test out the activity for yourself - you'll see why it's so popular (but maybe not when you're on the edge about to jump off the edge)! The next two days is all about experiencing the adventure capital that is Queenstown. Walk, hike, bike, skydive, go for a wine tour, browse local arts and crafts markets - you name it, Queenstown's got it.

Day 7 Gunn's Camp

Take in the beautiful natural landscapes as you drive one of the most scenic routes in the world to Milford Sound. Pass through farmland, mountains, glacial carved valleys and fiords - the time will fly by. Explore Milford Sound on a cruise - described by Rudyard Kipling as the ‘eighth wonder of the world' you can guarantee it's incredible - then head over to your camp for the night, right in the middle of the Fiordland National Park.

Day 8-9 Stewart Island / Queenstown

Weather permitting, start the morning off right with a hike to the Key Summit track for amazing views over Fiordland mountains. Next, it's off to tranquil Stewart Island. Spend the morning of Day 9 getting to grips with the island - enjoy some of the stunning walks, go fishing, or mingle with the locals. In the afternoon, catch the ferry to Bluff at 3pm then it's off back to Queenstown.

Day 10 Aoraki / Mount Cook

Leave at 8.40am and make your way over the Lindis pass through the magnificent Mackenzie Country and Lake Pukaki. Next, drive north to the base of Aoraki Mount Cook, New Zealand's highest mountain, arriving in the early afternoon. Hop into a 6WD vehicle for a tour of this remote and rugged alpine region!

Day 11 Rangitata

The landscapes in Lord of the Rings may have looked incredible in the cinema but it's got nothing on seeing it in real life - Rangitata is breathtaking! Head past the gorgeous Lake Tekapo and picturesque Church of the Good Shepherd (get your cameras ready!) and spend the evening in Rangitata.

Day 12 Christchurch

Catch an express across the Canterbury plains to Christchurch in the morning. Today your New Zealand tour sadly comes to an end.
