Trip Itinerary

  1. Christchurch to Fox Glacier via Hokitika

    1

    One minute you’re stuck in that boring home routine, ‘nek minnit’ you’re landing in Christchurch, meeting a bunch of people who are 100% different but 100% the same – and making tracks to New Zealand’s most famous glacier. First stop? Historic Hokitika. Head to the beach and find the quirky sculpture made by the locals. Buy a pounamu (greenstone) for good luck. And give ‘mountain oysters’ a try (hint: Google it first). We’ll make a photo stop at Lake Matheson to make your friends back home jealous AF – before rolling into the jaw-dropping Fox Glacier region. After tucking into an included dinner with the gang, you could seek out the resident glow worms on an after-dark adventure – just ask your in-the-know Trip Leader.
