Come, join us as we travel to New Zealand’s South Island for an unforgettable autumn experience. Of the four distinct seasons, autumn’s arrival in a blaze of reds and golds is the most dramatic, attracting visitors, artists, and photographers from around the world. 

We begin and end in Christchurch, known as the Garden City. As the hub of the South Island, Christchurch offers visitors a mix of old English contemporary style along with true Kiwi culture. Wining and dining in the city is exceptional and the hip and happening ‘Strip’ on Oxford Terrace and swanky High Street are the places to explore.

From here we travel along the south’s center region to see all the beautiful colors of foliage up through Lake Tekapo, Mt. Cook, Queenstown, Twizel, Ommarama and Arrowtown.

Just when you think what more can there be, we are off on the Trans Alpine Express scenic train across the mountainous spine of the South Island. It is truly spectacular and is rightly described as one of the great train journeys of the world. Sit back and marvel on this great train journey of the world.
