In Christchurch, board one of the world’s most scenic trains and travel across the Southern Alps. Two nights at Franz Josef won’t be enough as you admire the incredible views and have a chance to participate in a Glacier Valley walk. But that’s not all…you’ll enjoy an excursion to Fiordland National Park, boasting some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery, where you’ll have an unforgettable cruise on Doubtful Sound.

It’s not just amazing scenery you’ll experience on this Cooks Islands, New Zealand, and Sydney tour.
