Combine the wonderful and dramatic scenery of the South Island with some of its finest foods and wines. Spend a full day at the Akaroa Cooking School where you can get first-hand knowledge of New Zealand ingredients and styles. You then journey north to Marlborough, where you'll discover the world renowned wines on a half day tour. After free time spent in Nelson where you can enjoy an Abel Tasman National Park adventure or taste the craft wines and beers of the region, you then journey south along the spectacular West Coast Road. Ending on a high, you spend two days in the alpine village of Wanaka, where a truly memorable experience awaits - a scenic flight in a vintage Tiger Moth aircraft, before landing lakeside for a picnic and opportunity to drink in the views.
