Unspoiled New Zealand - glaciers, rainforests, lakes and snowy peaks; the Southern Alps tour takes you on a breath-taking loop through some of the world's finest scenery. New Zealand was one of the last places in the world to be settled by man and it still retains a rugged, incomparable pristine beauty. "The Lord of the Rings" was filmed here on the West Coast and is rightly recognized as a World Heritage Area.
The South Island is known for friendly Kiwi hospitality, excellent local cuisine and includes interesting history from the region's gold mining days. Wanaka and Queenstown are vibrant towns and both on the shores of beautiful lakes with an astonishing alpine backdrop.
Accommodation includes luxury wilderness lodges, alpine chalets and character inns.
