Over 24 unforgettable days you will experience it all: secluded beaches, jaw dropping scenery, Maori culture, mountainous ranges, lush rain forests and more adventure activities than you could ever wish for.
As with all our tours, we do include a few 'must-do' events, ranging from a Maori Cultural night to a Queenstown gondola ride, and even a 'Tiki' pendant carving experience.
You will see a massive range of optional activities available to add, from bungy jumping and dolphin swimming to jet boating and scenic flights. None of these are compulsory; just add the ones you want.
The tour price includes dorm share accommodation (4-6 share) but if you would prefer a little extra space you have the option to upgrade to a private room for the duration of your tour.
