The Route (and the Routeburn)
Meet up with your Contiki crew in Christchurch, wherever the coach will depart for Franz Josef (AKA glacier land!) En-route, there’ll be a transient end-off in Hokitika, wherever you will get a unique check out of the NZ rainforest from a 40-metre treetop stroll. Soon after a totally free day of kayaking, quad biking and climbing in Franz Josef, and by way of a vacation to Haast to look at out the popular blue swimming pools, you’ll head to Queenstown – the journey funds of the earth. Really don’t panic, you are going to have 4 times to make the most of the intense views, serious sports activities and severe(ly neat) neighborhood nightlife.
Upcoming, it is off for a Milford Sound fjord cruise en-route to Te Anau – identified around the planet for its nationwide parks. The speculate carries on into Lake Ohau, where by you will mattress down in a remote lodge with a scenic view of Mt Cook. The excursion ends back again in Christchurch, but only just after a ultimate hike in Hooker Valley. Cue icebergs.
