5 Day Adventure

DAY 01 – Queenstown

Pick up your car rental from the airport and take a quick drive to your hotel where you will check in for 4 nights. The balance of your day is at leisure until your Gondola dinner experience.

Gondola & Buffet Queenstown Experience

Take a scenic ride in the iconic Skyline Gondola and take in the stunning views as you ride the steepest cable car lift in the Southern Hemisphere!

You’ll be carried 450 metres above Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu to the top of Bob’s Peak, where you’ll enjoy a spectacular 220-degree panorama with breath-taking views of Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, Walter and Cecil Peak and, of course, Queenstown. Dinner is included with this excursion.

DAY 02 – Glenorchy Safari

A Glenorchy safari packed with breathtaking Lord Of The Rings filming locations and thrilling 4WD action.  Along this magical journey, you will travel along one of New Zealand’s most scenic drives. As a result, there are stunning vistas and panoramic views of the Southern Alps.  As well as visiting the filming locations for Isengard we will also discover the Ithilien Camp, Lothlorien & Fanghorn forest, Battle of Amon Hen and many more.

DAY 03 – Doubtful Sound Wilderness Cruise

Doubtful Sound is a beautiful fiord. Three times longer than Milford Sound, with twisting arms, it has a surface area ten times larger. With its rugged peaks, verdant rainforest and twisting, hidden inlets, Doubtful Sound will take your breath away.  There’s no direct road access, so the only way to get to Doubtful Sound is via cruise across the picturesque Lake Manapouri, followed by a bus trip over Wilmot Pass – New Zealand’s most expensive (and majestic) road. You’ll pause along the way to experience the dense Fiordland rainforest and view Doubtful Sound glistening below. This isolation makes this fiord a very special place, only those in the know get to see.

Once you arrive, you’ll board a catamaran for a 3-hour cruise on Doubtful Sound – a spectacular pristine fiord. During the cruise the knowledgeable and friendly nature guides will share with you their passion for the region.

DAY 04 – Shotover Jetboat Ride

Embark on one of the world’s most exciting jet boat rides this morning. A unique combination of beauty and power, it’s an experience like no other, blending pristine natural landscape with wall to wall canyon action from start to finish!  Proudly owned by Ngāi Tahu, the Māori people of this land, our connection to the Kimiākau (Shotover River) goes back centuries. As the home of our tīpuna (ancestors), this place is part of us. Only we have access to the spectacular Shotover Canyons and no one knows this area like we do!

DAY 05 – Depart

Drop off your rental car at the airport this afternoon… why not stay longer?
