Our tour departs from Christchurch in the morning, and travels through the lush farmland of the Canterbury Plains to Lake Tekapo. Here, you can see the iconic Church of the Good Shepherd as it stands in solitude next to the vibrant blue waters.

Leaving Tekapo, we will continue into the Southern Alps towards Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park, home to New Zealand's tallest mountain. Along the way, your driver/guide will keep you entertained and informed with commentary on the area's history and sites of interest.

The tour concludes on arrival at Mount Cook Village, where you can enjoy a three course lunch at the famous Hermitage Hotel.

You have the option to explore the village and soak up the views of Aoraki / Mount Cook as it towers above. You will have the rest of the day at leisure.
