11 Day Hiking Tour - Christchurch to Picton
The South Island of New Zealand is arguably one of the most scenic and landscape diverse areas of the world. From the beauty of the Canterbury Plains, the rolling tussocky hills of the Mackenzie Country, the glittering Alpine lakes and the stark rugged mountains jutting straight up to the heavens, there is nothing quite like it. From the magical beauty of the Marlborough Sounds, to the fabulous adult playground of Queenstown – this is one trip you don’t want to miss.
