Our popular day walking tour spends time in seven wildly contrasting National Parks in New Zealand's stunning South Island including Abel Tasman coast, West Coast rainforest and glaciers, Fiordland and Milford Sound (Milford Track option), Mt Cook and after a flight to Rotorua, Tongariro National Park.
This ambitious itinerary combines adventure, real walking, good food, and great places to stay, with 'High Places' (and New Zealand's) own informal and relaxed style.
PLUS an option to leave us for 4 days to walk the world famous Milford Track (but book early).
The trip ends in Auckland but if you are short of time you can save North Island for next time and end the trip in Christchurch after Mount Cook.
What did you enjoy most about your trip?
"Adventurous discovery of New Zealand with friendly and informative leaders. Wonderful food and well thought out itinerary."
Vanessa Priestley, NZ Contrasts
Would you recommend High Places to others? YES Why?
"You are thoroughly professional and clearly care a lot about getting it right, and you employ great guides – which reflects well on you. Your local knowledge enabled us to do things we could not have organised ourselves. Most importantly, we enjoyed your company – and you seemed to enjoy ours.
Ian Steen, NZ Contrasts
"We had a great holiday and really felt that you had taken a lot of trouble to find the sort of places we would like. We will certainly recommend you to any one we know who is thinking of a New Zealand trips."
