NEW ZEALAND – STUNNING QUEENSTOWN, FABULOUS GLACIERS
Written By Admin
NEW ZEALAND -SCENIC BEAUTY TOUR – 10 DAYS
The Scenic Beauty Tour starts at Christchurch and you will begin by travelling the Arthurs Pass Highway to the West Coast. Weather permitting, you will explore the giant rocks at Castle Hill before being driven on to Hokitika. There, you will visit the Pounamu Factory (NZ Jade) before travelling on to the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers (optional helicopter ride on to the glaciers – see details below). While at Fox Glacier get your camera ready for fabulous photos of the most beautiful lake in NZ, Lake Matheson, the mirror lake.
You will be puzzled at Wanaka’s Puzzling World and at Queenstown relax and enjoy a cruise across beautiful Lake Wakitipu on the historic S.S.Earnslaw. On the far side of the lake at Walter Peak Station enjoy a barbeque. The station is a working sheep farm.
Queenstown is famous for its beautiful scenery and more recently for the movie Lord of the Rings so a Safari of the Scenes is a “must do”. Another in Queenstown is a gondola ride to the Skyline Restaurant for a scrumptious meal and stunning views across Lake Wakitpu, Queenstown and mountain range The Remarkables.
Arrowtown, a historic goldmining town, is fun to explore. Drop into The Remarkable Sweet Shop for delicious fudge, and discover what life was like on the goldfields of Central Otago. Later you will be wined and dined at the Waitiri Creek Vineyard. Returning to Christchurch, you will overnight at Tekapo and enjoy a visit to Mt John Observatory: you will feel you can touch the stars. We stop at Te Ana Maori Rock Art before we get back to Christchurch.
Before you depart Christchurch you will visit to the Antarctic Centre. New Zealand has had a long association with the South Pole and the Antarctic Centre showcases this. Experience a Blizzard, penguin feeding, ride in a Haglund Snowmobile and enjoy a 4D Theatre experience. It will give you an insight into the harsh but beautiful continent that is the South Pole.
Tour Includes: All Accommodation, Transport, Main Course evening meal, continental breakfast, all tours and Guide/driver. Does not include Travel Insurance.
