    Day 2 Lake Tekapo + Stargazing Experience

    Driving time Christchurch to Lakestone Lodge – 4 hours 

    The Mackenzie Basin is home to some of New Zealand’s most sublime scenery. From towering peaks (including New Zealand’s tallest, Aoraki/Mt Cook) to brilliant turquoise lakes and shimmering glaciers, the Southern Alps are an awe-inspiring destination. Your first glimpse of the glacial lakes is at Lake Tekapo, a picturesque settlement surrounded by mountains.

    Continuing south, you will pass by the breathtaking southern shores of Lake Pukaki before arriving at Lakestone Lodge, a purpose built, six bedroom, off grid, luxury lodge positioned in a spectacular location on the shores of Lake Pukaki. Your stay includes delicious three-course dinner each night, and a daily cooked breakfast.

    In the evening, enjoy a unique stargazing experience at Lakestone Lodge that will treat you to the best of the Mackenzie Dark Sky Reserve. Your guide will prepare a perfectly positioned hammock so you are looking directly at the wonders above and makes you snug with a warm woollen blanket and complimentary hot drink. Your guide will point out all the highlights of the southern sky with a high powered laser pointer and explain some Maori legends about the sky as well as other interesting theories.

    Stay 2 nights in Lake Pukaki.

    Accommodation: Lakestone Lodge

    Day 3 Mount Cook

    Enjoy a relaxing morning after your late night of stargazing. Make the scenic drive to Mount Cook Village (45 minutes each way), which is nestled at the base of the Southern Alps, with stunning views of Mount Cook and the surrounding mountains.

    You have the option to visit The Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre, located at The Hermitage Hotel.
    You could also visit the Aoraki Mount Cook National Park Visitor Centre. It’s like a state-of-the-art museum with two levels of informative displays about the flora, fauna, Maori heritage and walking tracks in the area.

    At 27 kilometres in length, the mighty Tasman Glacier is a powerful place to visit. While it slowly carves the valley sides, it provides a landing place for helicopters making it one of the best places in the country for a scenic flight or glacier heli-hike. You can also take a short drive to the Tasman Valley (just to the right of Mt Cook Village), where you can do a short 10-minute walk up to a viewing point over Tasman Glacier, New Zealand’s largest glacier.

    You can also explore Tasman Glacial Lake in a small boat and experience the enormity of NZ’s largest glacier as you weave in and out of floating icebergs. It’s a surreal and mesmerising experience in a totally unique environment.

    In the evening enjoy your three-course dinner at Lakestone Lodge.

    Day 4 Queenstown

    Driving time Lakestone Lodge to Queenstown – 3 hours 

    Today your journey takes you to Queenstown, the ultimate luxury destination on New Zealand’s South Island. From world-class accommodation to indulgent spa experiences, superb cuisine and exclusive tours, Queenstown is a one of a kind destination.

    The journey to Queenstown deserves to be savoured as well – stop and take in the views from the top of Lindis Pass, sample fresh fruit in Cromwell, and perhaps stop for a picturesque vineyard lunch as you pass through the Gibbston Valley.

    Indulge yourself at the stunning Queenstown Park Boutique Hotel. Right at the heart of all that is happening in town, yet perfectly placed for breathtaking alpine views. Relax in your spacious and contemporary Gondola Room, featuring a glass-walled bathroom, subtle chandelier lighting and your own private courtyard. Your stay includes daily gourmet á la carte breakfast and you are invited to the Remarkables Lounge every evening for complimentary pre-dinner drinks and canapés.

    Day 6 Queenstown

    Kick back and relax for 60 minutes in your exclusive classic cedar hot tub. Soak in the panoramic views of the mountains across the Shotover River. The idyllic cedar-lined hot tubs have long been a highlight for Queenstown visitors and locals alike. A unique kiwi twist on a Japanese tradition, pools are filled with pure water from the surrounding mountains which is heated to approx. 38.3 degrees. These pools have wooden side walls and a retractable roof so you can switch from an indoor to an outdoor experience at the push of a button! All guests receive towels plus a complimentary drink and snack to enjoy during your rejuvenating soak.

    This afternoon, if you are looking for a slightly slower pace there’s plenty of recreational activities including boat cruises, scenic flights, hiking and biking trails, the Skyline Gondola, the Kiwi Birdlife Park, or spa and wellness options to help you truly feel worlds away.

    Day 7 Queenstown or Day Trip to Wanaka

    Soak up one last day in Queenstown, or take the stunning drive to Wanaka, which takes just one hour. Drive over the beautiful Crown Range and admire the fantastic views along the way. Be sure to stop at the historic Cardrona Hotel for a refreshment before your arrival into Wanaka, an alpine town boasting panoramic views.

    Wanaka has a reputation for great food and wine, with a wide variety of lakefront bars, cafés and restaurants serving exceptional local cuisine, plus a wealth of artisans producing award-winning wine, beer, spirits, bread, and ice cream.

    For adventure seekers, there are hundreds of kilometres of tracks for hiking or biking. The crystal-clear water of the lakes and rivers are ideal for kayaking, fishing, lake cruises, and jet-boating, or to get an aerial perspective of the region and take a scenic flight.

    For a more relaxed vibe —stroll the streets and be inspired by galleries and stylish shops, visit Rippon Vineyard (pictured below) for a wine tasting or visit Wanaka’s very own Lavender Farm.
