Day by Day Tour Itinerary

Day 1
Queenstown

Kia Ora. Welcome to Queenstown – a walking, bungee and hiking paradise. After making your way through the terminal, through customs and baggage collection, make your way to Garden Court Suites and Apartments, where you’ll be staying in a lakeview suite.

The rest of the day is yours to harness – what will you do first?

Day 2
Queenstown - Milford Sound

Early this morning you will be collected from your accommodation and taken to Milford Sound by coach for your overnight cruise. Cruise the full length of Milford Sound to the Tasman Sea accompanied by a specialist nature guide. The cruise style is relaxed, allowing plenty of time to view the fiord’s spectacular waterfalls, rainforest, mountains and wildlife.

The Milford Mariner then anchors in a sheltered cove, where you can join the nature guide and explore in the vessel’s tender craft (small boat) and kayaks. Or, if you prefer, you can simply relax on deck.

As evening falls, enjoy a lavish carvery buffet in the dining saloon. Then relax in the company of fellow travellers or indulge in some star-gazing before retiring to your private cabin.

Day 3
Milford Sound - Queenstown

In the morning, enjoy a hearty breakfast before heading back out to the Tasman Sea (weather permitting) and exploring more of the fiord. Return to Queenstown by coach or upgrade to an optional scenic flight.

The rest of the day is yours to explore the alpine resort town of Queenstown. It is exciting, sophisticated and fantastically scenic. Perhaps the most famous of all South Island cities, Queenstown’s pulse thumps to the beat of action, adrenalin and visual wonder.

Set on the shores of Lake Wakatipu with the towering peaks of the Southern Alps in the background, this is the place that is often referred to as the ‘Adventure Capital of the World’. Alive with activity all year round, there is enough activity to keep you entertained all day and all night!

Day 4
Mt Aspiring National Park

Today enjoy the fun and thrills of the Dart River Funyak Safari. Your adventure begins with a jet boat ride on the crystal clear, glacial fed waters of the Dart River as you journey into the enchanted wilderness of the Mt Aspiring National Park, a World Heritage listed area.

Then it’s into your unique Funyak (inflatable canoe) for the fun downstream journey. Your specialist guide will point out sights and share stories of this awe-inspiring area as you explore the shimmering channels of the Dart River as well as hidden side streams, rock pools and dramatic chasms.

You’ll stop along the way and enjoy a delicious wilderness buffet lunch amidst spectacular surrounds before continuing downstream to ‘Paradise’. Return to Queenstown via a back-country route through the spectacular locations and scenery that formed some of the epic backdrops for the hit-movie, ‘The Lord of the Rings’.

Day 5
Queenstown

At leisure for last minute shopping or sightseeing before making your way to Queenstown airport and departing for your next destination.
