Set off on an unparalleled seven-day self-drive tour of New Zealand’s spectacular South Island, experiencing incredible scenery, bespoke guided tours and luxury accommodation as you wind your way between cosmopolitan Christchurch and the alpine beauty of Queenstown. A road trip quite unlike any other, this voyage is sure to leave you enraptured by sweeping mountain ranges, mammoth lakes that shimmer liquid silver, and grand swathes of translucent ice. In between luxury stays at the likes of the five-star Hotel St Moritz Queenstown by MGallery, there’s guided sightseeing in Christchurch’s graffiti-covered, coffee-scented laneways, a chance to take one of the world’s greatest scenic railway journeys on the TranzAlpine Railway, and scenic flights over the Franz Josef glacier and the majesty of Milford Sound.

Whether you’re pining for respite from city life or seeking new adventures, this tour offers a vast array of terrain ripe for exploration, with five days of all-inclusive SUV car rental, a 4WD guided safari of Wanaka, a tranquil cruise of Lake Wanaka’s glistening waters, and a trip to the hidden island of Moi Waho.

Itinerary & map
What you'll see

Welcome to Christchurch, a cosmopolitan city of churches set against an ancient volcanic peninsula and Canterbury’s lush vines. Rebuilt following the earthquakes that shook the city in 2010 and 2011, Christchurch today is an urban centre of graffiti-covered laneways with aromatic coffee and architectural flair — best discovered aboard a beautifully restored tram on a 17-stop loop.

On arrival at Christchurch International Airport (CHC), you will be met by our local representative and transferred by private vehicle to your boutique hotel in the heart of the city. En route, discover why Christchurch is hailed as the ‘Garden City’, with a two-hour tour of the award-winning gardens and historic buildings.

This evening, enjoy an included three-course dinner at your luxury hotel.
