New Zealand Fly, Drive & Stay – 7 days
Celebrate the beauty of New Zealand’s South Island with this easy, freewheeling getaway!
Fly to Christchurch or Queenstown, where your week of amazing exploration and discovery starts. You can base yourself in either of these great cities, or travel around the South Island and we can help plan an itinerary for you.
The city of Christchurch has a quaint English feel, even down to the flat-bottomed punts gliding along the Avon River through the centre of the city. Explore beautiful Hagley Park and the Botanic Gardens, admire the colourful murals and enjoy getting to know the vibrant spirit of this great city. Not far from Christchurch, you can discover the picturesque Canterbury Plains, Banks Peninsula and the historic seaside town of Akaroa. If the idea of indulging appeals, then take a tour or hire a car to visit the alpine resort town of Hanmer Springs and stop at Waipara Valley to try some of New Zealand’s premier wines.
Queenstown is set against a backdrop of the dramatic Southern Alps and sits on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. As well as spending time in the charming village, Queenstown is an ideal base for visiting the region’s famed vineyards and historic mining towns. It’s also renowned for a thrilling variety of adventure sports. From bungee jumping off Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge and skiing on the nearby ski fields, to speedy jet boat rides on the Shotover and Dart Rivers – Queenstown is called the ‘adventure capital of New Zealand’ for good reason!
