15 Day Fully Hosted Small Group Tour.

Discover this journey to New Zealand’s third and southernmost island – Stewart Island.  Each day will bring something new – drive over the rugged Kaikoura Ranges, see the White Stone City in Oamaru and the gigantic Moeraki Boulders, enjoy wildlife encounters, a guided tour through the Whitestone Cheese Factory and much more.


Following your voyage from Bluff, you’ll explore Stewart Island’s eastern shoreline, including the renowned wildlife sanctuary of Ulva Island.  Enjoy relaxing amidst the sensations, scenes and moods as we travel back to the mainland to continue our journey with an excursion through lush rainforest in the Fiordland National Park to Milford Sound.  Pass through Kingston at the southern tip of Lake Wakatipu to the lakeside resort town of Queenstown. 


We enjoy the panoramic views of Coronet Peak and The Remarkables, traveling through the rugged Southern Alps, up the West Coast to Franz Josef Glacier.  We take a scenic rail journey on the Tranz Alpine Train through the heart of the Southern Alps to Christchurch, before we head home to the Kapiti Coast stopping in the sunny Nelson region along the way.
