Day 1.
Day 2. Christchurch

Welcome at the airport and transfer to the hotel. Free time while we await the arrival of the rest of our fellow travelers.

We arrived in the city that on February 22, 2011 suffered an earthquake with terrible consequences.

Due to the devastating effect of this earthquake, there is a massive reconstruction process that, once completed, will give rise to a city with a markedly young, jovial and modern character. In addition to the creative architecture of the new buildings, the streets of the city contain many sculptures and colorful murals painted on the sides of the buildings. We have free time in the afternoon to visit the Canterbury Museum, Cathedral Square and the new Cardboard Cathedral (Buffet Breakfast)

Note: check-in at the hotel is at 2:00 p.m. but if you want to have the room before that time you have to pay a supplement

Day 3. Christchurch to Twizel

We leave the city and travel through the Canterbury Plains, littered with grain fields, sheep farms, deer and dairy cows, to the town of Geraldine. We climbed the plateau until we reached the Church of the Good Shepherd, located on the shores of Lake Tekapo, the first in the Mackenzie region. Built in 1935, this Church is arguably one of the most photographed in New Zealand.

Continuing through the plateau we find Lake Pukaki with its beautiful blue color and magnificent views of the Southern Alps and Mount Cook. Our destination is the Twizel village erected in 1968 to house the workers at the time of construction of the high Waitaki hydroelectric system (260 km) (Buffet Breakfast

Day 4. Mount Cook National Park

Today we travel to Mount Cook National Park, Aoraki in Maori, where the highest mountain in New Zealand is located, 3724 m high. It is a peak of the New Zealand Alps, a mountain range that runs along the entire western coast of the South Island of New Zealand, whose slopes hang several glaciers, such as the Tasman and the Hooker. It is a region much appreciated by climbers, with a long history of mountaineering, where Sir Edmund Hillary was preparing to climb Mount Everest. It is also a mountain known for having been the exterior location of some scenes in the movie "The Fellowship of the Ring". Here we take several short walks to see the Tasman Glacier, Mueller Glacier and the Hooker Valley so we can marvel at the dazzling views of Mount Cook.

Options : Helicopter flight + guided tour to walk on the Tasman Glacier, scenic flights of different durations flying over Mt Cook, the Alps and the Tasman Glacier (150 km) ( Buffet Breakfast )

Day 5. Twizel to Dunedin

In the morning a few kilometers from Twizel, we pass Lake Ruataniwha where we see the High Country Salmon Farm before reaching the town of Omarama, known for its merino sheep farms and for being one of the best places to fly in a glider. Going down the plateau we see huge hydroelectric power dams located in the valley of the Waitaki River. We continue to Oamaru town where we have time to see its magnificent sandstone neoclassical buildings from Victorian times and the old warehouses of the historic port.

In the afternoon we travel along the coast to the Moeraki Boulders to see these mysterious and peculiar rounded stone formations, sacred according to Maori oral traditions, lying on Koekohe Beach in North Otago.

We travel in the direction of Fjordland National Park where the landscape changes dramatically. We stop along the way to take pictures of the dreamy landscapes of the area, such as Hollyford Valley with waterfalls, cliffs and deep ravines on a journey back in time, in a world that looks the same as it did thousands of years ago. I pass through the impressive Hommer Tunnel.

Arrival at Milford Sound, known as one of the wettest places in the world, where we enjoy the cruise through this spectacular area with its immense mountains and numerous waterfalls. The cruise continues until reaching the mouth of the sea.

Day 9. Queenstown to Haast

We cross the Kawarau Gorge with its meandering river and pass through the Cromwell Fruit Country with its cherry orchards and vast expanse of vineyards. We stop to see the huge lakes of Hawea and Wanaka, both popular tourist destinations. Lake Hawea sits in a glacial valley formed during the last ice age and is fed by the Hunter River; Lake Wanaka is nestled between giant mountains and is considered the quietest of the South Island lakes. Mount Aspiring National Park, where the movie "Jurassic Park" was filmed, is a wonderful mixture of high mountains and beautiful valleys, a dream place for its orography, glaciers, river valleys and alpine lakes.

Once again we witness a spectacular change of scenery as we descend the highlands through the Haast Pass and pass waterfalls, crystal clear rivers and the immense rainforests found on the west coast of the South Island. We arrive at the town Haast (210 km) ( Continental Breakfast )

In the afternoon we stop at the Hokitika village, famous for its New Zealand jade shops (Pounamu in Maori), the stone with which the Maori traditionally make their pendants. Although New Zealand jade is scarce and therefore more expensive than that of other origins, Hokitika is the ideal place to buy it, since it is extracted from local rivers. The Pounamu has a special meaning for the Maori people of New Zealand, since in times past they used it to build tools, weapons and ornaments. We continue north along the coast and spend the night in the town of Greymouth (220 km) ( Continental Breakfast )

Day 12. Greymouth to Nelson

We continue along this coast of much wilder nature, until we reach the Paparoa National Park and the Punakaki town. Here we stop to see the peculiar Pankake Rocks, curious limestone formations, highly eroded, found by the sea, with sedimentation in alternate hard and soft layers (marine animals and plant sediments). During high tide, the water penetrates through vertical maritime geysers, offering a natural spectacle much appreciated by its visitors. Stopping at different points to appreciate the grandeur of this rugged coastline, we arrive at Cape Foulwind where we hike to see a colony of seals.

Westport is a coal mining town, and from there we change direction and drive through the picturesque valley of the Buller River, passing old gold mining towns and immense pine forests until we reach Nelson (360 km) ( Buffet Breakfast )

Day 13. Abel Tasman National Park

This morning we pass through the fruit growing area of Golden Bay which has plantations of apples, pears, and kiwis.

This coastal area was declared a National Park in 1942 in honor of the European explorer, the Dutchman Abel Janszoon Tasman, who discovered New Zealand in 1642. The ship cruises past various beaches of golden sand and turquoise waters, making it possible to disembark at one of the stops, for those who wish to do an easy 12 km hike.

On this walk you can enjoy views of beautiful fern forests and idyllic beaches, where we can have some time to relax and take a relaxing bath if we wish. For those who do not wish to do this walk, there is the possibility of doing another shorter one or if you prefer not to walk, you can continue on the boat along the entire coast of this beautiful park until you pick up the rest of the group (140 km) ( Continental breakfast

Day 14. Nelson to Wellington

Nelson is located on the northwestern tip of the South Island and was named after Horatio Nelson. The city is an important administrative center and the region is reputed to be the sunniest in New Zealand. For those who are passionate about sports and as a curious fact, Nelson was where, in 1870, the first rugby match was played.

The town of Havelock is quite popular for the green shell mussels, which come from the crystal clear waters of New Zealand. We drive through the sprawling Marlborough wine country, famed in the wine world for its fragrant Sauvignon Blancs, until we reach the town of Picton.

At sunset we go up to the Mount Victoria Viewpoint to enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the city and Oriental Bay (340 km) ( Buffet Breakfast )

Day 16. Wellington to National Park

Leaving the capital behind, we travel north through coastal towns and through grazing lands up into the highlands to the Waiouru village which houses the National Military Museum. From here we have great views of Mount Ruapehu at 2,797m, which is the highest mountain in the North Island and contains the two longest ski areas in New Zealand.
Tongariro is the oldest National Park in New Zealand and has been recognized by UNESCO as a mixed nature World Heritage Site, for mixing culture and nature. This National Park was the fourth established as such in the world.

We continue and on the way we will stop to see Huka Falls, which displaces up to 220,000 liters of water per second and bubbles down the gorge jumping more than 8m away, to create a curtain of beautiful blue. Visit to the thermal area of Wai-O-Tapu, in Maori Agua Sagrada, in which collapsed craters with fumaroles and pools of boiling water and mud predominate. Here we see waters of different colors due to the minerals they contain, in addition to the impressive cava pool.

We arrive in Rotorua and in the evening we attend a Maori culture show and a Hangi (traditional Indigenous cuisine) dinner. The Maori cultural evening takes place with multiple representations of their culture, songs, typical dances of this ancestral culture and a demonstration of weapons.

We then pass by the Otorohanga Kiwi House where you can see New Zealand's best-known bird, the solitary nocturnal kiwi.

We continue to the city of Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand (340 km) ( Buffet Breakfast )

Essential information for all travelers:

  • Keep in mind when planning your vacation that, traveling from Spain, you need two days to arrive and one to return.
  • The guide will give general information about the country and each of the places we visit and will be there to help and solve small problems that may arise and to ensure that everyone enjoys an unforgettable trip. The guide is not responsible for the negligence that the rest of the travelers could commit.
  • There will always be a restaurant where you can have dinner, but during the day we stop in towns to eat where there are small cafes that sell take away food, sandwiches and hot and cold drinks. The lunch stop is between 45 minutes and an hour. The driver and/or the guide will decide, where appropriate, the time to spend depending on the place where we are. We want to show you the best of this country and during daylight hours.
  • The optional activities are designed to be carried out on free days and it is always preferable to make reservations a couple of days in advance, since most of the time places are limited. The guide will show you options and alternatives for each of them, to have an idea of what can be done, but he has no obligation to make any reservations for any tour or optional activity and if he does, it is for the maximum enjoyment of the traveler . You can therefore choose any company to do the optional tour and it will never be the responsibility of the guide if at the end of the tour, the traveler is not satisfied with the tour they have chosen.
  • The driver cannot change the itinerary or include any additional excursions because a traveler requests it. Optional activities are reserved for free days. Only the representative of the tour company is authorized to change the tour route due to weather, road conditions or road access.
  • The bus used for the tour is air-conditioned but basic. It does not have an upper tray to leave the backpack during the day, so you have to carry it on top or put it under the seat or in the free seats if there are any. We will rotate seats daily so that all passengers have the opportunity to appreciate the best views from the front seats.
  • Should there be a significant fluctuation in the exchange rate between the New Zealand dollar and the Euro, Holiday Australia reserves the right to charge an exchange rate fee. In this case, the agency will be notified at least one month before the departure date.
