Day 19: Mount Cook to Christchurch

Before we leave the Southern Alps, we stop at Lake Tekapo. We are now in Mackenzie Country, a landscape with character. Sparse rainfall makes this highland appear barren, with wide tussock plains spanning the hills like a carpet. Our journey continues through the extensive farmlands of the Canterbury Plains.

In the afternoon we reach Christchurch, the ‘Garden City’ of New Zealand. Today is the last evening of your trip and we invite you to a dinner, where you and your fellow travellers can review and celebrate the experiences you have had together over the last three weeks.
