The South Island truly is Middle Earth. Home to some of the most diverse terrain on the planet.  One moment you're meandering through plains and twisting waters - the next you're passing blue lakes surrounded by ice-capped mountains. On our New Zealand South Island tours, you'll feel like an explorer conquering remote and beautiful lands with your expert guide leading the way.

The South, has a distinctively more extreme climate than the North, but is easily accessible all year, from sping in September & October, the summer months between November & February and into autumn from March to May. From June to September is Ski Season and Queenstown, in particular, becomes a Mecca for winter travellers.

But, what people on our South Island small group tours tell us they remember most is the Island's inhabitants. Sure, the crazy Kea and clueless Weka will make you chuckle, but it’s the Kiwi (the two legged variety) you meet in the little towns of the South that will really bring a smile to your face.
