About This Trip

From Christchurch to Auckland, you will drive a car to admire fascinating New Zealand at your pace. During the journey, you will relish the tranquility of Lake Tekapo and Lake Wanaka, view Mount Cook and Franz Josef Glacier, and glimpse into the history of the gold rush and Maori culture in Rotorua. Also, the world of fireflies - Te Anau Glowworm Caves, The Lord of the Rings scenery, and the peculiar creatures such as the Kiwi Bird of New Zealand are amazing and worth discovering.
