Begin in Auckland before transferring to Treetops Lodge and Estate in remote Rotorua where you'll enjoy acres of old-grown forest and trout-filled streams. Board the famous TranzAlpine train as you head west through to reach the idyllic Grasmere Lodge. Create your own adventure at your leisure in nearby Arthur’s Pass National Park. The TranzAlpine train ferries you next through the Southern Alps to Franz Josef and the eco-conscious Te Waonui Forest Retreat. Impressive glaciers and soothing hot springs are highlights of the small community, memorable points that can be reached by foot or scenic helicopter ride. Continue down the picturesque coast to Queenstown and Blanket Bay where you'll view Milford Sound on a helicopter tour.
