...Continue gallery information: or the glaciers of Westland National Park.

We fly by helicopter around Mount Cook and check out the blue ice of Fox Glacier and the Franz Josef Glacier before we reach the rainforest and finally the beaches. We visit the old steam train, the Kingston Flyer, visiting Queenstown and Fiordland National Park. In the south we reach the not so know The Catlins with sandy beaches, hidden waterfalls, Nugget Point Lighthouse, the fossil forest if Curio Bay and the rich wildlife with yellow eyed penguin or hooker sea lions.

We "finish" the tour with the city of Dunedin, the Otago Peninsula, and the Banks Peninsula near Christchurch.
