Kiwi Encounter

Up to off this trip

Trip Overview

Wherever you look it’s beauty, beauty and more beauty. You’ll see everything from soaring volcanoes and towering mountains to mirror-like lakes and dolphins. Journey through wine regions (and try the local goodies) and chill out in a craft beer capital. Make friends for life and see the best that New Zealand has to offer. Are you ready for it?

 

Trip Itinerary

  1. Christchurch to Fox Glacier

    1

    And so the journey begins! The Canterbury Plains make for pretty window views today – but we’ll be in mountain territory in no time. We’ll make a pit stop by the stunning Lake Matheson en route to Fox Glacier. Fingers crossed for good weather so you can see New Zealand’s two tallest mountain peaks reflected in the mirror-like lake!
