tour: PJE1
18 days from Queenstown to Auckland
Waking up in Milford Sound. Whale-watching in Kaikoura. Wine-tasting in Blenheim. Get ready to cross them all off your bucket-list on this 18-day Globus tour of New Zealand, travelling from Queenstown to Auckland.

Exhilarating experiences await in the Land of the Long White Cloud, serving up some of the country’s most spell-binding scenery. Enjoy an overnight cruise in Milford Sound – an area often referred to as one of the wonders of the world; delight in the dazzling sights of Franz Josef at the Glacier Viewpoint; and savour panoramic views of the Southern Alps as you journey onboard the world-famous TranzAlpine.

Further north, bold and breathtaking views continue from a variety of vantage points. A sky-high walk amongst towering forests in Rotorua, a cruise across the glassy waters of Lake Taupo, and a subterranean tour of glittering glowworm caves in Waitomo, are just some of the ways you’ll relish in the country's unique natural wonders. A farewell dinner with 360-degree views atop Auckland’s iconic Sky Tower is a fitting end to this dream New Zealand holiday.

Continue your time on the North Island with a visit to the beautiful Bay of Islands. Your time here includes a full day excursion to Cape Reinga, a visit to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, and the scenic Hole in the Rock cruise. There’s plenty of time for you to kick back and relax or explore on your own. It’s the perfect ending to your visit to wonderful New Zealand!
