with a touch of Mt Cook

11 Day Fully Hosted Small Group Tour.

Join us over 11 delightful days, exploring everything Central Otago, with a little bit of McKenzie Country & Mt Cook thrown in for good measure, before we travel further south to discover the unspoilt Catlins.  

From Oamaru to Mount Cook, from Cromwell to Dunedin, with a touch of everything in between, from remote sites, inland river basins and deep river gorges, fascinating history, wonderful wildlife, incredible scenery and rocky outcrops, Central Otago and beyond is sure to delight.

We take up the sport of Curling in Maniototo before discovering the Scottish heritage of Dunedin and the charming historic town of Lawrence with an overnight stay in Gore, New Zealand’s official home of Country Music and the fabulous Croydon Aviation Heritage Centre. 


All of this before venturing south to discover a world of native forests fringed by high cliffs, pristine sandy beaches, sparkling bays, and dramatic cascading waterfalls, along with penguins, fur seals, sea lions and native birds in the truly remarkable Catlins.  Our final leg of this majestic journey then takes us northwest, travelling through Southlands dramatic fertile farmlands and onwards back to Otago and it’s “jewel in the crown” Queenstown.
