Tour Itinerary

Day 1. Christchurch to Mt Cook
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 National Park, you can experience the alpine vistas and explore the national park. You can also walk to view the Tasman Glacier, the longest glacier in the world that exists in a temperate zone.

Stay: Hermitage Hotel (B)

Day 2. Mt Cook to Queenstown
After breakfast there is time for walking or perhaps a glacier flight with a landing on the Tasman Glacier before you depart Mt Cook.

Travel south through the MacKenzie Country to Omarama (world renowned as a gliding centre) and from where a view can be made of the “Clay Cliffs” – an example of NZ’s “badlands”. From here you will travel over the Lindis Pass and view a dramatic change in the landscape as you head through Otago province to Queenstown.

Stop can be made in the Kawarau Gorge to view the Bungy bridge (where it all started) or perhaps visit one of the Kawarau wineries. Visit Arrowtown (historic old goldminers’ village) and then head to Queenstown. The tour concludes at your accommodation late afternoon.

This tour can be done in reverse and start in Queenstown and finish in Christchurch.
