Wild New Zealand provides the best of South Island activities at a relaxed and enjoyable pace. Challenge yourself as you kayak on a lagoon with awesome views of Mt Cook, take an optional hike on the Franz Josef Glacier, see glowworms in an ancient landscape and do a multi-day hike on the Outer Queen Charlotte Track. You’ll also enjoy time to shop for beautifully crafted greenstone in Hokitika and cruise the famous Milford Sound. See Fiordland, Aspiring, Westland Tai Poutini and Paparoa National Park as well as Queen Charlotte Wilderness Park.  The hardest challenge you'll face will be leaving this remarkable country.

The Maori name for New Zealand is Aotearoa, meaning Land of the Long White Cloud. Carved by water, buckled by earthquakes and scorched by volcanoes, this is a land of time gone by where forces continue to shape the island nation. Wildlife here evolved for eons in total isolation, resulting in a country where the birds ruled, the bat is the only native land mammal and much of the fauna is endemic (found only in New Zealand). New Zealand is to home to three World Heritage Areas; you'll visit the Te Wahipounamu Heritage Area, encompassing Westland, Mount Cook, Mount Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks.

 

Don't forget the people! Kiwis, or New Zealanders, are world famous for their laid-back approach to everything and anything, their sense of humor and their friendly nature—traits that are truly contagious. Come and experience the best of Wild New Zealand.
