South Island Showcase

Product Image
From the east coast to the west and back again, this 9-day journey through New Zealand’s South Island comes filled with soul-stirring scenery and unique experiences. Beginning in Christchurch, you’ll travel counter clockwise around the island, with overnight stays in Franz Josef, Wanaka, Te Anau and Queenstown.

Don’t forget your camera - photo opportunities abound throughout this tour! Explore picture-perfect Queenstown, framed by the aptly named Remarkable Mountains; embark on a cruise through UNESCO World Heritage Site, Milford Sound, and discover one of the most beautiful places on earth; spot endangered Hector dolphins while onboard a nature cruise in Akaroa; and be sure to grab a window seat as you board the TranzAlpine - one of the world’s greatest train journeys.

On this South Island tour, you’ll also get the chance to learn about Maori culture. Watch a jade (pounamu) carving demonstration with a traditional carver and learn about its cultural significance, before exploring the beauty of Franz Josef Glacier on a guided walk, where you’ll learn about the Maori legend behind this breath-taking landscape. With the perfect balance of active adventure and relaxation, this Cosmos tour is the best way to explore the spectacular South.
