New Zealand South Island Itinerary

Have you been dreaming of a New Zealand South Island holiday? New Zealand Guided Tours will help you create an amazing South Island itinerary that truly provides a once in a lifetime experience! Leave the city, get back to nature and marvel at the natural wonders that the South Island is famous for on one of our New Zealand tours.

Some of our favourite destinations include Milford Sound, Queenstown, Wanaka, Franz Josef Glacier, Mount Cook and the stunning Abel Tasman region. Though we can also take you to secret spots that without your local tour guide you would never know about.

Mountains, Fiords, Lakes, and Glaciers

The South Island is famous for its rugged mountains, turquoise lakes, majestic fiords, and crystalline glaciers. From the beaches and wine country around Abel Tasman and Nelson to the wild splendour of Fiordland National Park, our New Zealand South Island Itineraries will help you experience it all!

If you are travelling with younger children, you may wish to check out our South Island Family Guided Tours. And if you are especially interested in a New Zealand Lord of the Rings Tour, our Mountains of Middle-Earth tour might just be the one for you.

Your guide will reveal the best

It is hard to believe how much variety is packed into the South Island. Here you will find dramatic, awe-inspiring landscapes of every type. You will be grateful for your driver chauffeuring you around, because you won’t be able to stop staring at the fantastic views!

Some of the most memorable highlights on a South Island Tour are tricky to find, as they are not included in any tour books or planned excursions. Your guide will know about all of these, from scenic walks and hidden waterfalls to impressive caves and secluded beaches.

You will also stop at the best spots for viewing wildlife including seals, kea parrots, and – if you’re lucky – penguins and dolphins! Simply put, our New Zealand South Island Tours elevate your experience to a completely new level!

Your Guide does all the driving – sit back and relax

It’s no secret that roads can be narrow and tricky in the South Island – what a relief to leave that part to your driver. You just need to sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenery.

Choose between our New Zealand South Island Tours. South Island New Zealand Itinerary 7 Days, New Zealand South Island Itinerary 10 Days, New Zealand South Island Itinerary 14 Days or see both the North and South Islands with our popular New Zealand Itinerary 10 Days, these are just a few to take a look at!

Although we have designed a number of example itineraries to help you start out, we have found that no two guided tours are ever the same. All New Zealand Tours will be carefully crafted to surpass every expectation. Whatever you want, we will make it happen. No detail is too small to consider!

We can start with one of the existing itineraries and modify it to suit you, or design a fully customised adventure for a truly bespoke experience.  If you are interested in an entirely unique New Zealand South Island itinerary, we will arrange a time to discuss your interests and ideas so we can be sure your holiday suits your group in every way.
