SOUTH ISLAND DOWN THE MIDDLE
INCLUDING MOUNT COOK, WANAKA STATION & 
DOUBTFUL SOUND

9 Day Fully Hosted Small Group Tour.

 

Discover the middle of the South Island on this scenic journey through the mainland, with each day bringing something new.
Enjoy picturesque Lake Tekapo with its remarkable turquoise coloured lake, to the mountainous drama of the Southern Alps by day and with it being part of a UNESCO Dark Sky Reserve, there is no better place to see the dazzling night sky, than in this perfect stargazing spot.


Those seeking incredible scenery, hidden gems and some of the best kept secrets the South Island has to offer, this is the journey for you. From the tallest mountain in New Zealand, we travel deep south into the heart of Central Otago to Cromwell with rugged mountains, the meeting of two rivers and the pristine waters of Lake Dunstan – the natural beauty of the area is astounding.
Enjoy a back country 4WD safari as we discover Wanaka Station, before sampling the local artisan delights at Cardrona Distillery. Our adventure continues with a visit to the famed Croydon Aviation Heritage Centre, before we head to majestic and serene Doubtful Sound.


No “down the middle” experience would be complete without Queenstown, our home for two nights, as we journey deep into the heart of the world-renowned Mt Aspiring National Park, where myth, heritage and fantasy come to life as we experience a unique combination of breath-taking scenery and an exhilarating experience by jet boat and then later topped off with the magnificent views from Walters Peak.


Experience all this and more on this fabulous South Island tour.
