See waterfalls, emerald-green hills and the elusive kiwi bird
Waterfalls, emerald-green hills and a famously warm welcome are all on offer in the Southland region of New Zealand. Raw and rugged, untouched and uncrowded, our south New Zealand tours incorporate the wilderness of the Fiordland National Park, the dramatic rocky cliffs of Milford Sound and a huge array of birdlife on Stewart Island.
If you’ve ever seen The Lord of the Rings, you’ll already recognise the dramatic waterfalls and rivers of Fiordland National Park from the fictional location of Rivendell. Accessing the park through the lakeside town of Te Anau, discover this stunning region up close on a private boat cruise. There’ll be towering peaks to marvel at and the refreshing mists of nearby waterfalls to experience as you pass by.
Just off the coast is Stewart Island, the birding capital of New Zealand. Home to the famous, flightless kiwi bird, from which New Zealanders take their nickname.
