Relax during a one-way coach tour from Mount Cook to Christchurch, enjoying scenic views of New Zealand's South Island. Leave the driving up to an expert guide who narrates the landscape, from the shores of Lake Pukaki to the Canterbury Plains and Otago farmland. You’ll make a photo stop at Lake Tekapo before ending your 4.5-hour tour at Christchurch the garden city.
  • Scenic half-day tour from Mount Cook to Christchurch
  • See the iconic Church of the Good Shepherd on the foreshore of the glacier-fed Lake Tekapo
  • Travel through the farmland of the Canterbury Plains
  • Admire the stunning glacier-fed Lake Tekapo
  • Stop at Geraldine for afternoon tea (own expense)
  • Explore Mount Cook Village and see Aoraki (Mt Cook) New Zealand's highest mountain
Start your half-day coach tour to Christchurch — aka ‘The Garden City’ — with afternoon pickup at a central location in Mount Cook Village. Your driver motors down the western shoreline of Lake Pukaki, where you’re treated to exceptional views of Aoraki/Mount Cook, whose 12,217 feet (3,724 meters) in elevation makes it New Zealand’s tallest mountain peak.

Upon reaching Lake Tekapo, marvel at the glacier lake surrounded by alpine scenery. Disembark for a short visit to the Church of the Good Shepherd, a solitary structure that stands on the lake’s foreshore. 

After some photo ops, continue on over Burkes Pass before a tea break in the farming town of Geraldine (own expense). Afterward, you’ll travel through rolling green hills and via the pastoral stretch of the Canterbury Plains, listening to your guide’s informative commentary along the way to your destination, where you’ll arrive in the evening.

Not exactly a tour. More of a transfer service only. Were only given a short 15mins at Lake Tekapo. Check-in 10mins late and driver gave a scolding. We really didnt meant to be late. And well, it was still 5mins before departure time!

The scenery was stunning, but made all the more so, by the comfort and height of vision from the coach, and the amusing anecdotes, interesting commentary, and singing yes singing of the coach driver. The best way to do the journey with plenty of opportunity to take photos, stretch legs at the best possible places en route, and even a drop off at my hotel door in Christchurch.
