New Zealand is an unspoiled landscape of snow-capped mountains, sparkling fiords, deep and ancient forests, untamed coastlines, and rural farmland. This journey immerses you in the South Island, from the rugged tracks and coastlines of Abel Tasman National Park and Kaikoura in the north of the island to the soaring inland mountain country and its spectacular glacial-fed lakes to the deep, wild valleys and towering waterfalls of Fiordland National Park and finally, to the ornithologically significant landscape of Stewart Island.
Diverse activities reflect the style of New Zealand: kayaking calm, clear-blue waters, hiking through densely vegetated granite and marble formed coastline tracks to sandy beaches, wine-tasting in the Marlborough region, watching whales off the eastern coast, biking (or ebiking!) a segment of the Alps-2-Ocean trail, cruising through Doubtful Sound, evening Kiwi watching, and more! Enjoy cozy, unique lodges and inns, whose proprietors reflect the friendly, casual demeanor of New Zealand
