Description

 

 

Journey with us to a land of stupendous beauty and diversity. In 16 exhilarating days, we’ll visit some of the world’s most charming and livable cities, and grandest natural wonders. We’ll see for ourselves how British and indigenous influences have combined to create a cultural milieu like no other. We’ll explore the landscape where the Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed, delve into caves where glowworms light up like stars, encounter glistening glaciers, cross the Southern Alps by train, and lose ourselves in the profound silence of an unspoiled fjord. Throughout our adventure, we’ll embrace the best of New Zealand life — its cultural treasures, time-honored traditions, succulent cuisine, acclaimed wines, and peerless hospitality.
