DAY 1 Kuala Lumpur => Christchurch
Your exciting holiday with New Zealand Holidays begins with a pleasant flight to Christchurch.
DAY 2 Arrive Christchurch (L/D)
Haeremai - Welcome to New Zealand... 'The Land of The Long White Clouds'. Upon arrival, you will be taken for your Christchurch Sightseeing tour. As you drive through acres of well-kept parklands, gothic-style buildings and Elizabethan mansions, discover why this city is also called 'The Most English City outside England'. Travel across the fertile Canterbury Plains. Bypass Geraldine, center of the prosperous farming regions, reach Farlie and cross Burke Pass to arrive at Lake Tekapo. This highland lake and settlement at 710 meters (2300 feet) is in the heart of Mackenzie District and surrounded by mountains and far from the glare of city lights. Lake Tekapo’s cloud free skies make it the best place in the Southern Hemisphere to see the night’s sky. World heritage status is currently being sought for the area as the world’s first starlight preservation area.
DAY 3 Lake Tekapo – Mt Cook Region –Arrowtown – Queenstown (B/D)
Visit Church of Good Shepherd, a small memorial set against a spectacular backdrop of snowcapped mountains and turquoise waters of the lovely glacier-fed Lake Tekapo. Next, visit one of New Zealand’s best known public monuments, a bronze statue of a New Zealand Collie sheepdog, surmounting a large boulder by the lake’s edge. Make a stop at Pukaki-Lookout for a closer look of Mount Cook, also known as “Aorangi” when we travel across Mount Cook Region. If weather permits, you may want to take an optional helicopter flight up to the glaciers and experience the thrill of landing on a sparkling white snowfield.
Continue on with your scenic drive through Lindis Pass and visit Arrowtown – a vibrant historic gold mining town established in 1862. It was the discovery of gold in the Arrow River, which led miners by the thousands into the district and resulted in the formation of settlements adjacent to the gold diggings. In the evening, you will reach the major resort town of Queenstown, nestled beside the deep blue waters of beautiful Lake Wakatipu.
DAY 4 Queenstown – Pure Inspiration Day (B)
A free day to explore the endless optional attractions available. Just minutes’ walk from downtown Queenstown is a 10-minutes scenic gondola ride to Bob's Peak for iconic views across Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu. The most sedentary of visitors will have trouble avoiding adventure in this part of the world. Bungy jumping and jetboating are the classic Queenstown activities, but many are the way to raise adrenaline levels. When you're ready to relax, you'll find a fantastic range of eateries and bars as well as shopping awaits you!
DAY 5 Queenstown – Cromwell – Lake Wanaka – Haast Pass – Glacier Regions (B/D)
