From Christchurch, travel through Arthur's Pass National Park then down into the Westland District to finally reach the Glacier region with many photo opportunities and short walks along the way in the company of your driver/guide. This tour/transfer can be done in the reverse order, or choose Fox Glacier instead.

Depart from Christchurch and travel through Arthur's Pass National Park with photo stops at Castle Hill with its limestone formations. Take a short trail to see the Devil's Punchbowl Falls. Stop for a quick "cuppa" and then continue through the Otira Gorge and stop at the Viaduct Lookout to admire the perilous journey the stage coach followed to reach Arthur's Pass.

Take a lunch stop in Hokitika and then a short trek through the forest and sand dunes to continue in early afternoon towards the Glacier Region. There will be possibilities to add on activities such as the White Heron Colony or a kayak excursion on the tranquil lagoon of Okarito. It is a short trip then to reach Franz Josef. Transfer to your accommodation in Franz Josef. Transfer can be personalized - choose different locations such as Wanaka or Queenstown.
