South Island Road Trip Delights: Custom Multi Day 14D : 13N

The linking of special short road trips allows you to relax and take in more of the uniqueness of New Zealand. Having existing planned routes by a born local who understands that having custom options that can be tweaked to suit rather than a set plan creates a more flexible holiday.
The hot spots of New Zealand can then be interspersed with out of the way places that you may never have heard of or knew existed. New Zealand is a place of wonder and every hour the scenery changes to something more spectacular. Queenstown is a great stopping spot with so much to do and flying home is easy.
