South Island

Discover the South Island

Whether you’re an adrenalin junkie or a wildlife lover, you’ll find a perfect fit in New Zealand’s South Island.



Get set, go … hit the Queenstown ski slopes, tramp the famous Routeburn track, mountain bike in the hills, kayak on Milford Sound, climb Mt Aorangi, go white water rafting, jet boat on the Shotover River, catch a rainbow trout in Lake Te Anau, take a quad bike farm tour, and cycle the Lake 2 Lake Trail.


Milford Sound

Something a little less strenuous? Cruise Milford Sound, visit the Te Anau caves lit by millions of glow worms, see rare flightless takahēs and cheeky keas in the local bird conservation sanctuary, then strap yourself in for an exhilarating helicopter flight low over the mountains to Doubtful Sound.


Te Anau sauna

After a big day of sightseeing, soak in a hot tub overlooking spectacular scenery, sweat it out in a barrel sauna, enjoy the latest films at the fancy Fiordland cinema, shop for amazingly light and warm possum merino knitwear, and head to the Black Dog Bar for top local beers and wines.
