Overview

New Zealand

MAR. 13-28, 2019
Auckland, Dunedin, Queenstown, Franz Josef Glacier, Christchurch

While small in size, New Zealand is packed with spectacular natural wonders – sparkling lakes, mountains, ice-carved fiords, glaciers, volcanoes and lush rain forests. On this enthralling 13-night small-group adventure, discover its diverse landscapes, from cosmopolitan North Island to South Island’s remote wilderness. Experience Kiwi life in vibrant Auckland, and feel the intensity of a Māori haka war dance. In Dunedin, stroll through the Scottish-influenced town, and choose between Taieri Gorge train ride or wildlife-watching on Otago Peninsula. Spend a full day in breathtaking Fiordland to cruise Lake Manapouri, marvel at the rain forest and sail by catamaran through the majestic Doubtful Sound fiord. Outside Queenstown, explore the enchanting backdrops of the “Lord of the Rings” movies. Stand before the Franz Josef Glacier and breathe in the crisp air. Then traverse the scenic Southern Alps on an epic TranzAlpine train journey to Christchurch.
