Christchurch to Mount Cook

Highlights

Christchurch
Mount Cook

This far-reaching road adventure takes you from sea level to the highest point of New Zealand. You’ll begin with the flat green tranquillity of the Canterbury Plains, but it won’t be long before you climb to the tussocky wilds of the high country. Amazing smoky turquoise lakes announce your arrival in the Aoraki Mt Cook region, a place for outdoor pursuits.

Amid the Southern Alps you’ll discover the magic of Queenstown, where adventure and indulgence are available in equal quantities. A memorable journey through the gold towns of Central Otago takes you to Dunedin, a heritage city with a reputation for outstanding eco experiences.
