Adrenalin-charged Hikes

Experience New Zealand’s remote landscape and glacial marvels by pedal and paddle, on foot, jet boat and plane. From the startling face of Franz Josef Glacier to the “Cloud Piercer” (Mount Cook), the torrents of waterfalls, skyscraper peaks and fictional teal Blue Pools, it’s one big playground. The South Island hikes are challenging and unforgettable—we check off biggies like the Devil’s Punchbowl, Haast Pass, Routeburn, Kepler and the behemoth, Ben Lomond Track. We also visit two knock-out national parks on this 12-day adrenaline-infused adventure: Mount Aspiring and Fiordland.

Feel the Supernatural Rush

Spin into the Scenery

In Queenstown, we sop up the backdrop of the Southern Alps. It’s the hopping off point for bungee jumpers at the Kawarau Gorge Suspension bridge and jet boaters on the Shotover and Dart river—it’s also a very cosmo base for exploring the region’s coveted vineyards and historic gold mining towns. Jump from biking the Milford Sound Bike Queenstown Trail and the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail (New Zealand’s longest), to hiking hidden pockets of wild forest, to sea kayaking in the sanctuary of the Okarito Lagoon among the white heron rookery.

The guides were absolutely superb! Great driver, great cooks, great hikers, wonderful stories about NZ. The group was really nice but the guides made the trip the wonderful adventure that it was.”
