Few places in the world have the scenic diversity in such a small area as the southern South Island.

Our accommodation for two nights overlooks Lake Pukaki.

One our final day we’ll travel back down the Waitaki Valley past a string of lakes, and take in one or two of Dunedins highlights to finish our trip, including penguins on Otago Peninsula.
