Overview

New Zealand conjures up soaring mountains, spectacular fjords, Maori culture, unique flora and fauna, and stunning landscapes. This ultimate "kiwi" sampler is designed to appeal to the active adventurer who wants to thoroughly explore all these aspects of this unique country in reasonable comfort. It features the Milford Track with native NZ guides and full-service accommodations including prepared meals, Auckland and Queenstown cultural highlights, part of the Routeburn track, ascent of Ben Lomond and Roy's peaks, Maori culture, and wine-tasting. On our hiking days we cover 7-13 miles and up to ~4,000 ft. gain always with just a daypack. Outside of the Milford track we stay in hotels.
