New Zealand Adventure Holiday

This fabulous five-day tour of New Zealand’s – South Island Adventure starts with the dazzling view of the lower regions of the Southern Alps and a noon visit to Mt Cook. New Zealand‘s most elevated mountain. In the wake of spending the night in Queenstown, you’ll take an extraordinary journey on grand Milford Sound.

You’ll have a day allowed to investigate Queenstown all alone. At that point travel along New Zealand’s most staggering pathway to the World Heritage Westland National Park. The course up the West Coast takes you past mountain ranges, local timberlands and lakes to the Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers. A “living stream of ice”, the Franz Josef Glacier is over 7,000 years of age and an unquestionable requirement to see for any guest to New Zealand.

On the last day of your South Island visit, you’ll go along the rough West Coast to Shantytown. Here you will find a steadfast remaking of a Westland dash for unheard of wealthy town. You’ll additionally stop at Greymouth, the middle for a large number of diggers amid the notable gold strikes of the 1860s. Your five-day visit closes with an excursion to Christchurch on board the well known TranzAlpine Express.  One of the best 10 prepared trains traveling on the planet.
