South Island

See the spectacular South Island on an exclusive, personalised tour

Tour Description & Details

Join us for an unforgettable experience of the magnificent South Island of New Zealand. Travel with us in your own private coach, shape the itinerary to what suits your group best, stop and go wherever you please, do what you want, whenever you want! Flexibility is the key advantage of a custom tour as your time is your own, no big busses with schedules to keep and drivers that are inflexible to your needs and desires!

This custom tour can be as short or as long as you want to see every inch of the fabulous South Island! Catch a flight direct into Queenstown and explore the adventure capital of New Zealand, or go north from Christchurch with some whale watching en route and hike or kayak the world renowned Abel Tasman and Golden Bay area at the top of the South; explore the Wild West Coast, glacier hopping from a helicopter and revelling in the iridescent waters of Blue Pools and Hokitika Gorge; hit the Queenstown Lakes District and Central Otago for adventure activities galore, winter skiing or snowboarding in world class ski fields; Milford Sound, Wanaka, Arrowtown, Aoraki Mt Cook and a host of spectacular places to view, hike and enjoy!

Multi-day custom tours such as this one to the South Island must be booked well in advance to avoid disappointment and we would strongly advise starting your enquiry at least four months prior to arrival in New Zealand, so that we have enough time to plan the trip of your dreams with you, and ensure that we can acquire bookings and places for all of the activities that interest your group.
