This early spring trip will be a one-off departure for this season. It includes some of the highlights of our Ultimate South tour and guarantees to be 9 days of adventure – including stunning overnight and day hikes in five national parks. We make our way down the West Coast from Abel Tasman in the north before crossing the Southern Alps at Arthurs Pass. A great time of the year to be in the mountains of the South Island; spring is in the air, the mountains are still crisp with their winter snows and there are less tourists to photo bomb all those amazing photos you will take! On this tour you may be joined by some of our new guides for the season (as well as a senior guide) and be prepared - we may even check out a few secret hikes and places not mentioned in the itinerary! Be in quick as we have limited places available.

 

Highlights
