If you don't have time for the full South Island tour, leaving from Christchurch this epic 9-day South Island adventure is one of our personal short tour favourites. With stunning coastal areas, remote countryside, glacier fed lakes, isolated fiords it’s definitely pretty sweet and an outdoor adventurists dream! You'll enjoy scenic cycle rides, some of NZ's great daily and multi-day hikes all while staying at some of our most remote and scenic camp sites.
