The Ultimate New Zealand experience! This trip encompasses the very best that New Zealand has to offer - hike the best sections of the Lake Waikaremoana Great Walk and explore the volcanic wonderland of Tongariro National Park. In the South Island swim in the crystal clear waters of Abel Tasman National Park, kayak on New Zealand’s largest unmodified wetland before being exhilarated by the adrenalin-packed activities of Queenstown. Be dwarfed by the peaks of Milford Sound and the awe-inspiring Aoraki/Mt Cook. The five multi-day hikes throughout the country flaunt the diversity of the New Zealand landscape. The range of accommodation includes: camping, backcountry huts, lodges and cabins. Revel in the outdoor atmosphere while sitting around the campfire. Rotorua thermal park, Row boats, Okarito sea kayaking, cycling the Wilderness Trail and the Milford Sound cruise are all included in the trip price.

This trip can be split into two:

The North Island is the Ultimate North and the South Island is the Ultimate South.
