Departing from Queenstown, this ten-day-nine-night far South Island walking tour offers you the opportunity to walk in an area like no other on the planet - the Wakatipu basin, Mount Aspiring National Park, Fiordland, Milford Sound, Routeburn Track, and Milford Track are all on show in this incredible trip.
The far south of New Zealand is defined by incredibly beautiful jagged landscapes waiting to be experienced on foot, in the air, and from the water. You'll walk amidst towering granite peaks, pristine alpine lakes, crystal clear rivers, isolated valleys, Fiords, glaciers and rainforests.
The Central Otago region is New Zealand's finest producer of Pinot Noir. Venture down the Kawarau River Gorge to a local winery. You'll enjoy a winery tour, taste and immerse yourself in the wine-making process before relaxing in Queenstown with views of the Remarkables and the surrounding peaks.
Accommodation is included each night and chosen based on their quality, and location. On this trip, you'll stay at Crown Plaza featuring stunning views over Lake Wakatip, mountain view Milford Sound Chalets in Milford Sound, Distinction Te Anau Hotel & Villas along the tranquil shores of the beautiful Lake Te Anau, and Edgewater Resort on the shores of Lake Wanaka.
Most meals are included for the duration of the walk. At night, you'll dine with your fellow walkers as a group at hand-picked restaurants focusing on local produce and Kiwi meals of a high standard. There is one dinner not included, so you can head out and explore the options on your own. With dinner every night, you'll also be provided with local wines to enjoy with your meals.
All transfers to and from Queenstown as well as guides are included. Small groups of twelve walkers are hosted by highly experienced and knowledgeable guides. The walk is graded easy and fully supported. You only need to carry a day pack each day.
This Far South Island 10 day gourmet walk will enable you to relax, escape the day to day, and indulge in the incredible sights, sounds and tastes of New Zealand.
