Sick of seeing so many beautiful photos of New Zealand online and wanting to go see them in person? Make this a reality by joining our 18-day adventure through the best parts of Aotearoa New Zealand!

We kick off the trip with 10 days on the North Island traversing across one of the most geographically diverse regions of the world - see beautiful coastlines, walk among geysers and geothermal pools, visit the filming location of the Hobbit and Lord of the Ring movies, ride on a boat through a cave filled with glowworms, and step afoot on the Northernmost point of New Zealand!

After saying "See you later", to the North Island, we will take a 1-hour flight to dive deep into the South Island with a 7-day tour across the Southern Alps. We will explore some of the world's most beautiful natural wonders, including Mt. Cook, Queenstown, The Catlins, Tasman Glacier, and a cruise on the Milford Sound, which has been famed as the 8th Wonder of the World.

Price is per person / double occupancy. A single supplement may apply. 

A non-refundable 10% deposit is required to reserve your space.

Full payment is due 90 days before adventure start date.
