1 nights in Greymouth

The wildest side of New Zealand, the West Coast has an impressive landscape of brooding mountains, icy glaciers and surreal coastal formations. Greymouth, the largest town in this region, is a peaceful place: the residents are friendly and the city has a unique flavor of both English culture as well as some Maori. It is both rich in history and steeped in Maori heritage. South of Greymouth, nearby Shantytown offers a fascinating insight into the gold rush days of the 1880's, re-creating the atmosphere of the era.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Walk the Brunner Mine Site, Go Off-Roading Adventure, Take a Day Trip to Lake Brunner, Take the transalpine through Arthur`s Pass, Taste the famous beer at the original Monteith`s Brewhouse, and so much more!



2 nights in Franz Josef

Franz Josef is a small town in the West Coast region of the South Island of New Zealand. The glacier's terminal face is 3 miles from the town and its accessibility makes it a major tourist attraction and the main reason to visit Franz Josef. The scenery changes every day on the glacier because it is constantly moving and new routes are always being made. If you budget permits you, try the scenic helicopter flight with the glacier landing, it will be unforgettable. If you're into hiking, there are full day and half day options and easy/ beginner climbs to difficult/more competent climber routes. If you're lucky you'll spot a 'kea' or alpine parrot.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Hike to Alex Knob, Take a hike in the Tartare Tunnel and check out the glow worms, Chase waterfalls, Explore Peter`s Pool, take the challenge on Roberts Point Track, Take the Callery Gorge Hike and view the Waiho River, Kayak on Lake Mapourika, and so much more!

Queenstown provides a wide variety of sports including skiing, jet boating, bungee jumping, mountain biking and hiking. In the winter time Queenstown is a major gathering place for snow sports with people from all over the country, and the world for that matter, traveling to ski here. Locally, Queenstown has a reputation as one of New Zealand's wine and cuisine centers and also feature a vibrant nightlife.

New Zealand

Located in the South Pacific Ocean, off the southeast coast of Australia, New Zealand is made up of two spectacular islands. The North Island is well known for its beaches, islands, volcanoes, geothermal areas, and Maori heritage, while the major cities of Auckland and Wellington, are also exciting hubs of culture, cuisine and nightlife. The South Island is famous for its dramatic landscapes, outdoor activities, and astounding wildlife. The majestic Southern Alps stretch almost the length of the island, sheltering glaciers, alpine lakes, and some of the world's best skiing.
