The South Island of New Zealand is dominated by the magnificent Southern Alps which run all the way from Kahurangi National Park at the top to Fiordland National Park at the bottom. The landscape either side of the mountains is very different, with steep, rain-forest clad slopes to the west and much drier, flat plains to the east and the island boasts majestic glaciers, beautiful beaches, rolling winelands and stunning lake vistas. It’s also home to a fantastic array of wildlife and it’s possible to see whales, dolphins, seals, penguins and albatross here. This self-drive itinerary gives you a flavour of all of the above and more, at a relaxed pace and with some spectacular drives.
