New Zealand Rimu Multisport Tour

Hike, Bike and Sea Kayak the South Island

This multi-sport tour is the best way to see the wilder parts of New Zealand. We backpack in one of its most beautiful and secluded national parks, enjoy a variety of wonderful hikes, sea kayak Okarito Lagoon, Queen Charlotte and Milford Sounds, and bike the Te Arora Track.

Days 1-4: Kaikoura-Nelson Lakes

Shuttle to the seaside town of Kaikoura where we snorkel and swim with seals. Then choose a three-day option: a hut-to-hut hiking trip in Nelson Lakes National Park, sea kayaking through the more remote reaches of Queen Charlotte Sound, or mountain biking on the legendary Queen Charlotte Track.

Days 5-6: Punakaiki-Okarito

Hike among the limestone canyons and lush rainforest of the Inland Pack Track. After driving down the scenic and wild west coast, sea kayak in Okarito Lagoon, home to New Zealand's only white heron colony. 

Days 7-9: Franz Josef-Queenstown

Choose from two excellent hiking options at Franz Josef Glacier. It's then on to the village of Makarora, next to Mount Aspiring National Park. Bike the Te Arorora track to Wanaka. Transfer to Queenstown, stopping en route for an optional bungee jump. On your free day, hike, mountain bike, fish, water ski, bungee jump, go jet boating, riversurf, skydive, or raft raging whitewater.

Days 10-11: Routeburn Track-Milford Sound

Walk part of the famous Routeburn Track, with unbelievable views of the surrounding peaks. Explore Milford sound's massive, glacier-carved slopes and waterfalls in sea kayaks.

Days 12-14: Te Anau-Mount Cook-Christchurch

Transfer to Lake Pukaki, where we stay on a working high country sheep farm. A challenging hike up the main ridge of Mount Cook above Mueller Glacier provides unforgettable views. The final evening is spent with a traditional kiwi roast dinner before departing in the morning for Christchurch.
