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, pick up your rental car and travel to your luxury lodge – Azur. Your stay at Azur is sure to exceed your expectations. From the moment you arrive, you will know you are somewhere special. With breathtaking views over Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding mountains.

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

 

Day 2
Queenstown

It’s time to make memories in Queenstown. Pick and choose from a long list of adventures – from thrilling funyak tours along the Dart River and horse-riding in Glenorchy, to panning for gold in Arrowtown or taking a tour of Lake Wakatipu via the TSS Earnslaw, there is certainly something for every speed. Or a scenic walk may do the trick, exploring the diverse range of stunning trails the region delivers in troves.

Your hosts will be happy to provide first hand recommendations for activities and dining.

Day 3
Te Anau

A leisurely drive takes you to Fiordland Lodge, your exclusive retreat on the hills overlooking Te Anau. Te Anau township sits on the shores of Lake Te Anau. From here, the delights of the Fiordland National Park are within easy reach, including the start of the Milford Track. Cruise on the lakes, walk the tracks and visit the Department of Conservation wildlife centre. The Te Anau Caves are an excellent adventure.

Set in a World Heritage Area, Fiordland Lodge offers the discerning traveller comfort and privacy, and is the perfect base from where to explore Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound, and the surrounding Fiordland National Park. The elegance and splendour of the Lodge is mirrored in the breathtaking views of Lake Te Anau and Fiordland. Private and serene, the lodge is perfect for relaxation, or as a base for your Fiordland experience.

Day 4
Doubtful Sound

Today you will join a Doubtful Sound Wilderness Cruise from Manapouri including picnic lunch. Cruise across the crystal waters of Lake Manapouri to West Arm before boarding a coach and crossing the alpine route of Wilmot Pass through some of Fiordland and Doubtful Sound’s most dense rainforest.

On reaching Deep Cove, board a modern catamaran vessel, the Patea Explorer for a three hour cruise exploring the waterways of this serene and isolated fiord. There is plenty of time available to explore points of interest and view the spectacular alpine scenery including waterfalls, rainforest as well as mountains all the way out to the Tasman Sea. It is home to bottlenose dolphins, fur seals and when in season, the rare Fiordland crested penguin.

An onboard nature guide with specialist knowledge of the region’s history, flora and fauna provides detailed interpretation in English with a roving microphone. On the return cruise, the vessel’s engines are turned off and visitors are treated to the ‘sound of silence’.

Day 5
Queenstown

Drive back to Queenstown and return your rental car to the airport.

Our compliments to all involved. We had a wonderful time. Everything went as smooth as clockwork from the car pick up to all accommodation. We were most impressed with Azur luxurious accommodation and attentive and thoughtful staff. Queenstown put on a spectacular weather display also! For us, we should have put the extra days at the end, as the Doubtful Sound day is a long day and it would have been nicer to relax for a day after that before heading back, but that was our organizational error. I have already recommended Relaxing Journeys to friends looking for a trip to New Zealand and my sister and I will be back with our husbands. Mum loved the trip. Thank you.
