The 12 days that we travel through the country, include 8 days on the beautiful South Island where you skydive in Queenstown and take a transalpine train on its northern end, where you sip some of its best wine and enjoy bite of the just plucked apples. We fly into Auckland and out of Christchurch to cover the maximum in the time that we spend here.
