Discover the breathtaking beauty of New Zealand's South Island with our Queenstown and Christchurch day tour options. Travel between these two cities with the majestic Southern Alps as your backdrop, and visit the tallest mountain in New Zealand: Aoraki/Mt Cook. Set within a pristine national park, this stunningly scenic alpine wonderland must be seen to be believed. Along the way you'll see sweeping vistas of New Zealand 'high country' farmland, as well as glacier-fed lakes with vivid blue waters.
Queenstown is known as New Zealand's adventure capital - a haven for thrillseekers, with bungy jumping, snow sports, jet boating, hiking and hang gliding all on offer. Tucked into the Southern Alps at the end of Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is one of the most popular destinations in New Zealand.
Queenstown is also the gateway to Milford Sound - consistently voted one of the world's most spectacular natural attractions. You can visit Milford Sound with us on a full day tour from Queenstown, with scenic flyback options available.
Christchurch moves at a slower pace, but is well worth a visit for its beautiful gardens and interesting architectural style. The city has long had a strong English heritage, but after severe earthquakes in 2010 and 2011, it's become a place where old meets new, as innovative buildings and exciting public spaces arise.
