A country filled with natural beauty and raw exploration. New Zealand is simply one of the best destinations for roadtrip and adventure in the world. There are not many places when you can reach the alps and seeing stars at night with just a few hours of driving. You can go hiking and enjoying the view all day, and stargaze at night. If you’re lucky you might see some auroras as well. This roadtrip will take you to the best of NZ’s South Island. We’re driving along side the southern alps, and flying to the top of a glacier. We’ll cruise around the fiord and enjoy the stars. Are you ready, for an adventure of a lifetime?

Our schedule did not fit you?
CHRISTCHURCH - CASTLE HILL - FRANZ JOSEF
Once we touched down in Christchurch, we’re heading straight to the legendary Arthur’s Pass. One of the most scenic alpine route in the world. Where we will see waterfalls, and look outs along the way. We can also stop in Castle Hill, one of those LOTR scenery with rocks all around (it’s one of those LOTR war sceneries).We will end the day around the Franz Josef area.
FRANZ JOSEF GLACIER - HAAST BLUE POOL - WANAKA
We’ll start the day in an epic way. Flying on a glacier with a helicopter and landing on the majestic Franz Josef Glacier. Then we’ll make our way to Wanaka, with some stops along the Haast pass. Including the World’s Heritage Site, Haast Blue Pool. End the night chilling in Wanaka.
WANAKA - QUEENSTOWN
Today is an exploring time in Wanaka. There are dozens of short and long treks you can do in here, as well as just chilling around the lake area, where you can do many water sports or just strolling around enjoying the autumn vibe. Also we can see "That Wanaka Tree" a lone tree on the shore side of the lake, that is just so famous because how photogenic it is. After lunch, we will be heading to Queenstown. A short 1 hour drive through a scenic road. Chilling down once again in Queenstown enjoying some good foods, and hanging out with the group.
QUEENSTOWN - MILFORD SOUND
One of the most famous attraction in New Zealand, and arguably one of the most beautiful fiord in the world. We will take a bus from Queenstown and cruise along the fjord the whole day. We’ll be back to Queenstown in the evening and stay for another night.
Queenstown has such a laid back backpacker vibe in the town. There are also a range of activities to do, including hiking, bungee jumping, scenic flight and other stuffs. So many great restaurants and bars as well. If you want to do all that, today is the day. If not, then you can have a little rest before our next leg of the trip.
QUEENSTOWN - MT COOK
We will start early today. Heading to one of the most beautiful mountain on the planet. Mt.Cook. It is NZ’s highest mountain and one of the World’s Dark Sky Reserve. Which mean clear sky to stargaze in the night. We will hike to Tasman Valley and Hooker Valley, to get the sense of the ‘Lord of The Ring’ kind of scenery. And at night we will stargaze and (finger crossed) seeing some Southern lights or Aurora Australis.
MT COOK - TEKAPO
We will explore Mt.Cook a little bit more, before heading to Tekapo. Again one of the World’s Dark Sky Reserve. We will chill there in the hot pool, visit the church and another stargazing night.
TEKAPO - CHRISTCHURCH
We will be catching our flight back home tonight. There is still time to explore during the day. And we will catch our flight to Jakarta.
