Our private, scenic tours are designed in-house, with our guest’s experience and enjoyment in mind. All our tours feature a range of experiences around Christchurch, Canterbury, and the wider South Island.

**NEW!** Expedition Style Tours

See Do - Like Never Before

Extreme South Island Expedition

Join us on the 2nd of March 2025, for an epic 28 days (4 weeks) expedition exploring the depths and hidden corners of the South Island. For a minimum of 2 people. Where possible, we spend at least one night out on the fiords. Watch out for seals, penguins, crazy locals, and outstanding natural scenery

Admire, photograph, and enjoy as much of the South Island as we can squeeze into one expedition. From Christchurch we prescribe a massive loop around the South Island exploring as many of its nooks and crannies that we can manage along the way.
