This tour provides an alternative to large coach transfers between Christchurch and Queenstown ( or in reverse ) and is a more intimate journey than flying. The trip takes you across the Canterbury farming plains and eventually through the foothills to the Southern Alps. Further south the route takes you through the iconic MacKenzie Country, named after an infamous sheep rustler and past the glacially formed lakes Tekapo and Pukaki.Tekapo boasts a famous lakeside chapel while beyond the headwaters of Pukaki is New Zealand’s highest mountain, Aoraki Mt Cook. Photographic opportunities abound though weather permitting.From here the trip passes through the world renowned gliding area of Omarama and into the dramatic landscape of the Lindis Pass. The drive continues past Lake Dunstan and into the Kawarau Gorge, site of the world’s first bungy and home to award winning wineries.
