This action-packed trip combines hiking, cycling and kayaking with other activities to give you an unforgettable adventure through the scenic highlights of New Zealand's South Island. Hike amongst limestone canyons and lush rainforest, and into rugged mountains.
Sea kayak on a tranquil lagoon with a backdrop of snow-capped mountains in the dark waters of Milford Sound where rainforest clings to sheer cliffs thousands of feet high, or in the clear blue waters of Marlborough Sounds.
Cycle through native bush between secluded bays and through glacier-carved valleys with spectacular granite cliffs and tumbling waterfalls.
Snorkel with fur seals at Kaikoura. Gaze in awe at formidable glaciers and stunning mountain peaks. Optional activities allow you to tailor the trip to suit your interests and abilities. The accommodation varies between high quality B&Bs and lodges, and more rustic accommodations chosen for their special locations.
