N ew Zealand is a country made for walkers, and we've selected two of South Island's most renowned 'track walks' as the centrepiece of this outstanding holiday. Firstly we take the Abel Tasman Coastal Path, a gentle three-day trek, with luggage transported by boat. Then we fly south to Queenstown where we embark on our second trek along the famous Milford Track. This five-day adventure requires us to carry some personal items but this small effort is amply rewarded each day by the truly amazing high mountain scenery. Our holiday ends with a cruise across the deep blue waters of Milford Sound, a fitting end to a superb trip.' Please note that as access to the Milford Track is strictly limited to 40 trekkers a day. Early booking for this trip is essential to secure your place(s).Private departures We can also offer this trip as a private holiday for a minimum of two people sharing for £3,875 per person, Land Only.
