SUGGESTED ITINERARY

Day 1: Arrival- Christchurch
Upon arrival at the airport, your local guide will be waiting at the airport and escort you to your hotel. Later proceed to the Antarctic Centre where you have an opportunity to come closest to experiencing life in the continent. Here the four seasons of Antarctica are portrayed with a stunning sound and light show. At the Snow and Ice Experience, slide down an icy slope, shelter in the ice cave, brave the wind chill machine at -18 degrees Celsius, or get ‘exhilarated’ in the ‘Antarctic Storm’. The stunning lighting, storm audio and 40 km/h winds, the Antarctic Storm blowing every 30 minutes are all definitely an experience to look ahead to. After the enthralling Antarctic experience, proceed on a guided city tour of Christchurch. Drive past the city’s parks and gardens including Botanic Gardens (which along with Hagley Park is the second largest inner city park in the world) and Ferrymead Heritage Park, a recreated Edwardian township and museum. See the Gothic style University building now converted into a complex of over 40 specialty art and craft businesses and performance venues. Stop over at Cashmere Hills for breathtaking views of Christchurch and the Southern Alps. Cashmere was voted the top suburb in a recent survey in the Christchurch Press due to its fabulous views over the city and sea for the same reason. Dinner and overnight at the hotel in Christchurch

Day 2: Kaikoura-Christchurch
After breakfast, proceed on a day trip to Kaikoura for a whale watching boat cruise (weather permitting). The seaside settlement of Kaikoura is located on the rugged east coast of New Zealand’s South Island and is overlooked by majestic mountains, which remain snow-capped for many months of the year. This unique combination of ocean and mountains offers excellent coastal alpine scenery and a host of eco-tourism oriented activities including whale watching, dolphin swimming and more. Watch the Giant Sperm Whales that can grow up to 20 metres and weigh over 50 tonnes. These whales can be seen all year round making Kaikoura one of the most popular whale watching locations in the world. You may encounter New Zealand Fur Seals, pods of dusky dolphins and the endangered Wandering Albatross. Stay overnight at your hotel in Christchurch.

Day 3: Queenstown
Early morning after breakfast, check out and drive to Queenstown which is a long but scenic drive. En route, pass through Mt. Cook National Park. Mt. Cook is the highest peak in Australasia and an icon of New Zealand. Standing at an imposing height of 3764 metres, it dominates the Southern Alps that separate Christchurch from Queenstown. Forty percent of the total area is still covered in a spectacular sweeping glacial ice. We also visit the Church of Good Shepherd at Lake Tekapo which was built in 1935 to the glory of God as a memorial to the pioneers of the Mackenzie Country. Congregations of the three main faiths worship regularly in the Church, which offers awe inspiring views of the lake and mountains through the altar window. Then proceed to the spectacular lakeside resort town of Queenstown which is the adventure capital of New Zealand. Prepare to be spell bound by the natural beauty of the Alpine resort town, famous for its lakes, fjords, water sports and Bungee Jumping. The evening is free to enjoy the town on your own. Overnight at the hotel in Queenstown

Day 4: Queenstown-Arrowtown
Today, visit Arrowtown where you can leisurely browse through the shops for a wide range of New Zealand made merchandise. One of the most picturesque settlements in New Zealand, Arrowtown sits alongside the Arrow River – once the scene of a frantic gold rush. The town retains its historic character – there are more than 60 restored buildings from the 19th century. Explore the Chinese miners’ settlement, visit the Lake District Museum, catch a few holes at the challenging local golf course or take a 4WD journey to Macetown, a ghost town accessible only by wagon track. Rest of the day is free to enjoy the activities of Queenstown on your own. Overnight at hotel in Queenstown

Day 5: Queenstown-Milford Sound
After breakfast, embark on a day trip to Milford Sound through the lush beech forests of Eglington Valley. Pass through Homer Tunnel and arrive at Milford Sound. Here, board an enchanting cruise (weather permitting) and enjoy the fjordland scenery of cascading waterfalls and lush green rain forest, clinging on to the mountains. The majestic presence of the magnificent Mitre Peak will leave you spellbound. Mitre Peak is one of the most iconic and commonly photographed peaks in New Zealand. With luck, you will see dolphins and penguins in the area. Later, drive back to Queenstown. Overnight at hotel in Queenstown

Day 6: Rotorua-Maori Village
Check out of the hotel and drive to the airport to board your flight to Rotorua.  Rotorua is the Geothermal capital of New Zealand. Whether seeking to experience Maori culture, Geothermal earth forces, Spa rejuvenation, thrills or an adventure - Rotorua delivers it all. Your local guide will be waiting outside the airport to welcome you and take you on a visit to Agrodome and the sheep shearing Show. At Agrodome, learn about the different breeds of New Zealand sheep and watch an informative entertaining presentation on sheep shearing. Later visit Te Puia Thermal Reserve which is world famous for the ‘healing waters’ of its thermal spas. Here view the molten heat of the earth surfaces in boiling mud pools and steaming geysers. Finally,visit a Maori Village. Meet the colourful Maori people and learn about their culture. See master craftsmen at work in the Arts and Crafts Institute. Overnight at hotel in Rotorua

Day 7: Rotorua-White Island
Today, proceed for a full day excursion to White Island also known as Whakaari. For this, you board the cruise at Whakatane to get across to White Island. It is one of the most fascinating and accessible volcanoes on earth. The volcano is estimated to be between 100,000 and 200,000 years old. However, the small portion of the island that is visible above sea level has been in its present form for an estimated 16,000 years - evidence of a continually changing landscape. Walking on White Island is like walking on the moon. Virtually no vegetation survives the harsh acidic environment inside the crater walls. In the late afternoon, board the cruise back to Whakatane and then return to your hotel. Overnight at hotel in Rotorua

Day 8: Auckland
Today, proceed to Auckland by road. The scenic drive takes you to the famous Waitomo Glow worm Caves. Take a boat ride on the underground river and visit the world-renowned Glow Worm Grotto. As your boat glides through the darkness, thousands of tiny glow worms light up the cave to give you an unforgettable experience. The delicate incandescence of thousands of tiny glow worms is a magical sight. Later, head to Auckland, the City of Sails. The city of Auckland boasts of huge shopping malls and colourful yachts decorating its harbour. On arrival, you are taken on a city tour. Your tour will take you to visit Mount Eden a cinder cone and surrounding suburb in Auckland City, New Zealand, situated five kilometres south of the city centre. The mountain is the highest natural point in the whole of Auckland. Also see Mission Bay and Tamaki Drive, the scenic waterfront route around Auckland's eastern bays. The Bay has a dedicated cycle lane and is also popular with walkers, runners and skaters. Kayaking is another option. Peaceful views across the harbour to the volcanic island Rangitoto accompany you all the way. See the Harbour Bridge, Auckland domain, Queen street and City centre which are must-see sights in the heart of the city. Finally go to the top of Sky Tower for a breathtaking view of Auckland.
