* Sample Itinerary

Day 1 (Suggestion Only): Arrive Queenstown : Around Queenstown

Depending on your interests, you could climb Queenstown Hill or Ben Lomond for fantastic views of Queenstown and beyond, take a cruise on the TSS Earnslaw or for the thrill seeker try one of the many extreme activities such as jet boating, rafting or canyon swinging. Enjoy your evening at one of the many downtown restaurants and sample the local wines and produce.

Day 2 (Suggestion Only): Queenstown – Te Anau 174 kms

Day 2 Travel from Queenstown to Lake Te Anau. Your journey clings scenically to the edge of Lake Wakatipu. Start your day early so you have time to take a break in Kingston, the home of a remarkable vintage steam train and visit the small towns of Mossburn and Lumsden for unique shopping opportunities – a farm tour is another possibility. The picturesque Te Anau Township sits on the shores of Lake Te Anau. Cruise on the lakes, walk the tracks and visit the Department of Conservation wildlife centre. The Te Ana-au Caves are an excellent adventure. Travel pack includes specific information and recommendations so you can tailor your day to suit your specific interests.

Day 3 (Suggestion Only): Te Anau – Milford Sound 116 kms

Day 3 The road to Milford is one of New Zealand’s most scenic drives. The first part is relatively mild farmland, then you’ll ease into beech forest near the entrance to the Fiordland National Park. Look for the Avenue of the Disappearing Mountain and the Mirror Lakes. The rough hewn Homer Tunnel brings you into Milford Sound, an amazing 22km-long fiord dominated by Mitre Peak. A cruise on Milford Sound will be an essential component of your time in Fiordland, or you can get up close and personal in a sea kayak. Tall waterfalls, vertical rock faces and seals are just some of the things you’ll remember. The underwater observatory is an option with most cruises.

Day 4 (Suggestion Only): Around Milford Sound

Day 4 The grandeur of Milford Sound can be appreciated from the air or water. Bowen Falls, hurtling 165 metres into the sea, and the Stirling Falls further down the sound, set amidst the towering cliffs and dwarfed by Mitre Peak, are truly spectacular after rain. Take an early morning cruise to avoid the day-trippers from Queenstown. Or if you are feeling a little more adventurous, you can explore the Sound by kayak. Prepare to get cold and wet, but you will feel the true majesty of the surrounds by getting seriously up close and personal.

Day 5 (Suggestion Only): Milford Sound – Queenstown 290kms

Day 5 A free morning to relax and take it easy before returning to Queenstown. Spend as little or as long as you like at Te Anau or the other picturesque little towns along the way depending on how you feel on the day. Take the opportunity to get those last minute photos at Milford or on the way back to Te Anau. Stop lakeside for a bite to eat and enjoy the serenity! Drop the vehicle back to the depot by 5pm.

Day 6 (Suggestion Only): Queenstown to Wanaka 113 kms

Day 6 An easy day today. You have 2 routes to Wanaka, the Crown Range Road is the more spectacular shorter option, but a little more challenging. The other option will take you alongside the Clutha and Shotover Rivers. Crystal clear lake waters lap the shores of Wanaka town and the feet of the Southern Alps, which are home to winter ski fields and the dramatically alpine Mount Aspiring National Park.The lake is the picture and the mountains are the frame. Lake Wanaka is a place to take a deep breath and relax. Protected from the outside world by the grandeur of the mountains, you're enclosed in a hidden paradise. Lake Wanaka is New Zealand's fourth largest; its clean, blue waters are an inland sea for sailors and jetboaters to explore. Walking tracks and bridle trails wander the flats and foothills. In all seasons, outdoor adventures beckon.

Day 7 (Suggestion Only): Around Wanaka

Day 7 A free day to explore this beautiful lakeside region. Take to the air on one of the many flightseeing opportunities, a fishing charter or in to the surrounding area on one of the many walks. The Clutha river walk from the Southern end of Wanaka to Albert town is popular. The Mount Iron walk is a little more strenuous, but well worth it for the views of the lake. If you don’t want to use your own legs, horse trekking is available.

Day 8 (Suggestion Only): Wanaka to Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers 262 kms

Day 8 Todays first scenic highlight is Lake Hawea, followed closely by the northern end of Lake Wanaka. The famous 'bra fence' is impossible to miss - it started as a joke, but it's become a local legend. At the wilderness town of Makarora you can fuel up and refresh before you take on the dramatic twists and turns of the Haast Pass. Enjoy waterfalls and river scenery as you arrive in rainforest country. It's a town with a touch of the wild west. Just north of Haast is Lake Moeraki, a peaceful forest lake.A 40 minute walk takes you to the penguin colony at Monro Beach. Next is pretty Lake Paringa, where you can enjoy a delicious meal of salmon at the salmon farm.The terminal face of Fox Glacier is just 5 kilometres from the township that serves it.The Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers are unique relics of the last ice age. Mighty rivers of solid white, tumbling down ice-hewn rock valleys, they are classically beautiful in the glacial sense. After a short drive north, you'll arrive at Franz Josef Glacier. You can walk to the terminal of the glacier in about 10 minutes. Franz Josef township has a good range of accommodation and eating establishments.

Day 9 (Suggestion Only): Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers to Greymouth 203 kms

Day 9 You will head towards the "frontier town" of Hokitika this morning. Previously settled in 1860 after the discovery of gold, Greenstone (NZ jade) is now the town's treasure - watch it being carved. You might also want to investigate the museum and do the historical walk. The road between Hokitika and Greymouth provides great views of the wild west coast. Detour to the beach and breathe the salt spray air. Driftwood is the ornamentation of choice for west coast beaches - every shape, size and colour. Shantytown, just south of Greymouth, is a reconstructed 1880s gold rush town - great family entertainment. Greymouth has a long gold mining history. It's the largest town on the west coast and is known for its awesome seascapes. The local brewery runs tours or you can catch up with west coast history at the museum. White water rafting, sea kayaking and gold panning are other things to do. Travel pack includes specific information and recommendations so you can tailor your day to suit your specific interests.

Day 10 (Suggestion Only): Greymouth to Christchurch 254 kms

Day 10 Classic west coast river and forest scenery leads you east. Rushing water, impressive bridges and tiny towns gradually give way to the misty mountains of the Southern Alps. Arthur’s Pass is memorable for its scenery as well as its breathtaking civil engineering. The settlement of Arthur’s Pass is a base for climbing, hiking, hunting and skiing adventures in the adjacent national park. There’s a good choice of shorter walks. The road follows the Waimakariri and Bealey Rivers Lakes Pearson and Grasmere are photo opportunities along the way. Rural serenity and friendly towns lead you across the Canterbury Plains to Christchurch. Your vehicle is due back to the depot by 5pm today.
