DETAILED ITINERARY

Detailed Tour Description

Australia and New Zealand occupy a lost corner of the world map, each country remaining relatively unexplored and unchanged. On this Australia and New Zealand tour, you will discover that the endless red desert is fringed by dazzling city lights; tropical delights entice you above and below the surface, and landscapes dance with the sun's irrevocable curve. Of course, you should be expecting natural beauty, but which ecosystem will most capture your imagination? Perhaps white sand beaches or maybe incomprehensible desert. The colorful reef beneath the ocean or the rugged trails through the indigenous rainforest? It's most likely to be the subtleties and contradictions; verdant green jungle merging into dramatic mountains or unadulterated coastline, snow-capped peaks towering over vast fjords and serene lakes. These two countries put on a beguiling spell, each day feeling like you're experiencing a new country and destination.

But the land is just the start of the canvas from which your adventure is painted. Start in iconic Sydney, a city that is defined by the nature that surrounds it. Surfers patrol the beaches, boats cruise past the Opera House and beneath the Harbour Bridge, and within 30 minutes you're out of the city and into the enchanting Blue Mountains. Flights take you across the country, catapulting you to new colors and charms. Continue to tropical Cairns, where the Great Barrier Reef and an immersive Aboriginal experience await. Swoop into the red center and discover that Uluru is more than just a big rock in the desert. Uluru is a spiritual center that epitomizes the inimitability of both Australia and its residents.

Then continue the adventure in Melbourne, a city that promises kangaroos and koalas, as well as evocative glimpses of the country's past. Throw in the astonishing delights of the Great Ocean Road and your ten days in Australia are looking pretty full. Striking fjords provide a provocative welcome as you cross the Tasman Sea to New Zealand, and stark mountains rising vertically from turquoise waters. It looks unfamiliar. The landscape is crisper and more defined. Rocks grow bigger, lakes become calmer, and nature's great playground provides the final week of this unique vacation.

Your travel experience is defined by the volcanic-shaped land. Cruise through the tranquil waters of Milford Sound, rocking your head back and marveling at the Fiordland National Park from below. Helicopter ride between the mountains, skim across glacial rivers in a jet-paced boat; and dare yourself to jump into the abyss. Queenstown is the world's adrenaline capital, but there's a wonderful calm that contrasts your three days here on the country's South Island. Fly north and be welcomed to Rotorua in true Maori style, with traditional warriors inviting you into their tribal home. Like every day in New Zealand, it will be the nature that captures your heart. Mountain bike through pristine forest, kayak to natural hot springs and weave through a unique landscape that looks every bit as surreal as the movies. Discovering the Hobbiton movie set provides a fitting conclusion to your vacation because even if you've seen it in photos or movies, nothing compares to experiencing the firsthand beauty of Australia and New Zealand.
