November 4-18, 2023, January 6-20, 2024, January 20-February 3, 2024, February 3-17, 2024, February 10-24, 2024, February 17-March 2, 2024, March 2-16, 2024, March 16-30, 2024

This dream journey brings you everything you could want to do on the South Island—that’s why we named it Ultimate South Island! It includes hikes on four of the country’s celebrated Great Walks: the alpine Routeburn Track, plus the lush Rakiura, Kepler, and Abel Tasman tracks, all protected in pristine national parks filled with soaring landscapes and native forests. Besides our wonderful hikes, we’ll take an overnight cruise in stunning Milford Sound (the jewel of Fiordland National Park), sea kayak in the azure waters of Abel Tasman National Park, look for kiwis (the feathered kind) on remote Stewart Island, and sip wines in the renowned vineyards of Central Otago. We’ve arranged three internal flights on the South Island to make the most of our time and get to the South Island’s most diverse settings. New Zealand’s acclaimed food and drink scene and our friendly lodges and inns keep us comfy along the way.
