Few places in the world can boast of such natural wonders as the South Island of New Zealand. Featuring majestic land and sea wildlife, this 9 Day holiday will captivate you with its stunning coastal scenery and abundant fauna including whales, dolphins and seals.
Arrive in Christchurch, the ‘Garden City’ and the newest city in world, thanks to its regenerative architecture. From there it is on to the charming township of Akaroa, regarded as the French heart of New Zealand. Your wildlife sojourn begins with a swim with dolphins, before heading north to Kaikoura. The village of Kaikoura is caught between the rugged Seaward Kaikoura Range and the Pacific Ocean, perched on a rocky peninsula.
In the waters off the peninsula a complex marine system provides an abundantly rich habitat for marine mammals and seabirds. After penguin and whale watching tours and a guided seal kayaking trip, round out your trip with an immersive experience in the Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa. This holiday is very definition of getting ‘closer to nature’.
