Longer Christchurch Self Drive Packages 10 days or More

Our most popular itineraries, these longer Christchurch self-drive packages of 10 days or more are ideally suited for those that want to explore more of the South Island on their New Zealand vacation. These packages allow you to spend more time exploring the New Zealand's South Island. See the Church of the Good Shepherd at Lake Tekapo, spend time on a boat trip to Tasman Glacier at Mt Cook. Discover the wildlife attractions of Otago Peninsula or Akaroa. A Nature Cruise on Milford Sound, or Wilderness Cruise to Doubtful Sound to view two of Fiordland National Park's most spectacular fiords is a must. Be spellbound by the scenic beauty of Queenstown and Wanaka, nestling in the Southern Alps beside Lake Wakatipu and Lake Wanaka respectively. Cross over the Haast Pass to the West Coast for a scenic helicopter flight with snow landing, or heli-hike trip at Fox Glacier or Franz Josef Glacier. View the reflections in Lake Matheson, before crossing on the TranzAlpine scenic train through the magnificent Southern Alps from Greymouth back to Christchurch.

For those wanting to explore the top of the South Island, you can head north to Kaikoura for Whale Watch or Swimming with the Dolphins boat trips; or visit beautiful Hanmer Springs to bathe in the hot pools, walk or cycle through the forest, try bungy jumping or jetboating, or just browse the arts and crafts shops in the village. For those that enjoy food and wine, a visit to the Marlborough or Nelson regions are a must. Blessed with some of the best weather in New Zealand, the region has more sunshine than anywhere else in New Zealand, and is recognised as one of the premium wine growing regions world wide. However with Marlborough Sounds, Queen Charlotte Track, and the National Parks of Nelson Lakes, Abel Tasman and Kuharangi nearby, the region is popular with hikers, kayakers and everyone who loves nature and outdoors activities. from Nelson you can head south through Buller Gorge and down the West Coast to Punakaiki Pancake Rocks and Blowholes and Greymouth, one of New Zealand's most scenic drives. From Greymouth the route takes you back through the Southern Alps to Christchurch; or for those with more time to the West Coast glaciers and Queenstown.
