Tour Itinerary

Depart Christchurch and head across the Canterbury Plains to the foothills of the Southern Alps. Your journey will take you across the wide expanse of the plains and then across the Rakaia River and its gorge. Heading south you will travel alongside the foothills and through small picturesque country towns. Cross Burke’s Pass and enter the high country of the MacKenzie Plains, named after a sheep rustler. Visit the Church of the Good Shepherd on the shores of Lake Tekapo, a beautiful turquoise coloured lake. The scenery is fantastic as you follow Lake Puakaki and the Tasman River all the way to the alpine village of Mt Cook.

At 3724 metres, New Zealand’s highest mountain, Aoraki Mount Cook is dazzling and there are 20 other mountains in this alpine backbone which peak at over 3000 metres. Hundreds of others are not far short of that, all making up the famous Southern Alps. At Mt Cook, take a short walk or perhaps a glacier flight with landing on the Tasman Glacier (extra cost).

Leave New Zealand’s highest mountain behind today as you drive through Twizel and Omarama before heading up over the Lindis Pass – this is the area where gold was first discovered in the Central Otago region in 1861. Central Otago has a harsh but beautiful landscape due to its summer heat and winter cold. A lot of gold was discovered in the area in the late 1800’s. More recently in the late 1900’s it’s been discovered as a great place for growing grapes so there are some good reasons for exploring this area. Continue on through the Kawarau gorge to get to the alpine town of Queenstown where your guide will provide a brief familiarization of the town before dropping you at your hotel and bidding you farewell.
