Day 1 : Arrival in Christchurch

Upon arriving at the Christchurch Airport and after clearing immigration, you will be met by our local Joy Travels representative, who will escort you to your hotel. On the first day of your Coast-to-Coast New Zealand Tour, you will have the rest of the day to relax, or explore the city on your own. Christchurch, near Canterbury Plains, with the Pacific Coast on its’ east, is New Zealand’s largest city in South Island. The water here is amongst the purest in the world. Worth visiting landmarks include: Botanic Gardens (with the Peacock Fountain and an Arts Gallery), Lake Victoria (in Hagley Park) with black swans and yachts, Ferrymead Heritage Park, Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, Whitewash Head (bird sanctuary), and the International Antarctic Centre. Tourists often venture for mountain biking in the Bottle Lake Forest or the Port Hills, while the Summit Road provides great views of the surrounding areas. Most satisfying will be the Mt Pleasant Trig that gives complete views of the hills, Southern Alps, the Pegasus Bay, and Christchurch city from Lyttleton Harbour. There are several restaurants, inns, and cafes serving a wide variety of food and cocktails, while there are shopping malls selling all kinds of merchandise. “Untouched World” offers unique, quality clothes made from mountainsilk and merinomink, while Ballantynes sells apparel for men and women, besides speciality items. Overnight at hotel in Christchurch. 

Day 2 : Christchurch-Dunedin

After breakfast, you will be leaving Christchurch for Dunedin. You will be discovering South Island a little better, as you travel to Ashburton in the fertile Canterbury Plains; go on to the port city of Timaru, built on the rolling hills of an extinct volcano; travel through the pastoral town of Oamaru with its impressive limestone buildings; and, finally reach Dunedin. After checking into a hotel, you will have some time to relax or go for sightseeing (on your own). You may wish to explore the cultural centre of the city, Octagon. Overnight at hotel in Dunedin.

Day 3 : Dunedin-Queenstown

Following breakfast, you will be boarding the historic Taieri Gorge train on an engaging journey to Pukerangi. This daily train service transports tourists along the rugged Taieri River Gorge through several tunnels and wrought iron viaducts made over a century ago, where you can admire the sheer drops to the river flowing underneath. You will be disembarking at Pukerangi, called the “hills of heavens”, and travel ahead to Queenstown on Seat-in-Coach (SIC) basis. Those who wish to self-drive can continue their journey in a rented car. Overnight at hotel in Queenstown.

Day 4 : Queenstown-Milford Sound Cruise

After breakfast, you will be going on an unforgettable cruise to the World Heritage Site of Milford Sound and Mitre Peak.

You will be returning to your hotel in the evening and can spend the rest of the time to relax. Overnight at hotel in Queenstown.

Day 5 : Queenstown

Post-breakfast, you may go sightseeing or indulge in one of the thrilling sport activities (at your own cost) in the city.

Day 6 : Queenstown

Following breakfast, you will be going for another unforgettable tour to visit beautiful lakes and glaciers in the South Island. You will be driving past the beautiful Lakes Wanaka and Hawea, before you arrive at the fetching Haast, where the Landsborough River, running parallel to the Southern Alps, meets the sea. The Haast lies in the protected wilderness region of the South Westland World Heritage Site, lush with natural beauty. The Landsborough Valley allows glimpses of hanging glaciers and thick rainforests. Later, you will be proceeding to the Fox Glacier in the World Heritage area of Westland National Park and the nearby Franz Josef Glacier. Both the glaciers descend from the Southern Alps to about 300-m above sea-level in the midst of great scenic beauty. There are many activities you can indulge in (at your own cost), such as: guided valley walks, ice-climbing, heli-hiking, white-water rafting, or relax in hot pools fed by the glacier’s waters.
