More Information

DAY 1 Christchurch to Fox Glacier

Say kia ora to your fellow Topdeckers in Christchurch and soak up some incred views over the Canterbury Plains. Then: we’ll make a pit stop by the stunning Lake Matheson en route to Fox Glacier. Fingers crossed we’ll get good weather so we can see New Zealand’s two tallest mountain peaks reflected in the mirror-like waters! Tonight, we’ll get to know each other better over an included dinner. Cheers to an epic trip!

DAY 2 Fox Glacier to Queenstown

Who’s ready to hit the ice? If the weather is good, you’ll have the chance to explore this chilly playground on a heli hike. Alternatively, you could go all-out and get a bird’s eye view on a scenic flight. Then: the adventuring continues as we roll into the adrenalin capital of NZ – Queenstown. Get your bearings on an orientation tour, then be free! The nightlife here is on a whole other level. Ice Bar, anyone?

DAY 3 Queenstown

Ready. Set. GO! Queenstown is loaded with adventure activities – and you’ve got two days to cram them all in! For the thrill seekers: choose from bungy jumping, jet boating, canyon swinging, skydiving or zip lining. Doesn’t sound like your thing? Take the skyline gondola for some incred views over Lake Wakatipu. There’s even a sky-high luge track to challenge your Topdeck buddies on. It’s on! Tonight, why not hit up Fergburger for a meal that will haunt your dreams? Yep, it’s that good!

DAY 4 Queenstown (Milford Sound Day Trip)

Plaster your face to the window as we take the scenic route to Milford Sound for today’s main event: a cruise on the fjord, complete with thundering waterfalls and towering cliffs that will just blow your mind. Keep your eyes peeled for the resident seals and dolphins, too!

DAY 5 Queenstown

Quick! It’s your last day here. Our hot tip: sign up for some whitewater rafting on the Shotover River, or jump in a funyak (like kayaking, but better). Hungry after all of that adventuring? You’re in luck. We have an included dinner tonight at one of Queenstown’s most popular hangouts!

DAY 6 Queenstown to Lake Ohau

We’ve got an epic two-wheeled excursion in Arrowtown on the agenda today – so get ready to tone those thighs as we cycle along the banks of the Arrow River, crossing some OMG-worthy suspension bridges along the way. Later, take in all the pretty window views before hunkering down at our lodge for the night. Nestled between towering mountains and overlooking the sparkling lake, this is the perfect place to relax and recharge after a hectic few days. Clink glasses with your #Topdeckfam tonight over one last group dinner. It’s going to get emosh...

DAY 7 Lake Ohau to Christchurch

It may be our last day, but there’s still plenty of time to squeeze in one last pano at Lake Tekapo before we head back to Christchurch. We’ll say our goodbyes after an orientation tour of the city. *sad face* With so much to see here, we wouldn’t blame you for wanting to stick around, though!
