New Zealand is world famous as a paradise for those who love the outdoors. The South Island is divided by a mountain range, the Southern Alps, which are responsible for the islands' unique climate zones that include high alpine and glaciers, lush rainforest, beech forests, and plains.
On this adventure, you'll explore the mountains in Mount Cook National Park and Nelson Lakes National Park, hike the rainforests and coastlines of the West Coast, get up close to glaciers in Franz Josef, cycle the Alps to Ocean trail, paddle the Okarito Lagoon, cruise around Milford Sound, and so much more. Along the way, experience New Zealand's unique culture and wildlife in a mix of famous and lesser-known places on the South Island.
Dive into the customs and landscapes of Vanuatu to uncover raw beauty and vibrant culture of these tiny islands on five-day expedition that takes in the legendary land diving ritual of Pentecost island's Indigenous people.
This 17 day tour of Auckland, Wellington, Queenstown and Christchurch is the perfect way to bring New Zealand’s North and South Islands to life across land and sea, taking in both cities and small towns. You’ll traverse epic landscapes, indulge in fresh food and delicious wine, experience farming and Maori culture firsthand, and meet welcoming locals with stories to share.
