Day 2 Nelson

Dense forest, snow-capped mountains and acres of pinot noir grapes. Green, white and red... no wonder Nelson has been referred to as the Naples of the southern hemisphere. Throw clay or wield a paintbrush in the creative artist hub. Skydive, kayak or take a hike through the mountains, forests and waters of
Abel Tasman National Park. Or go treasure hunting in Nelson's galleries. Round out the day with a traditional Kiwi BBQ dinner catered by yours truly. Not bad, Nelson. Not bad.

-Dinner

Day 3 Nelson to Kaikoura

More wine you say? Okay. Today we head back through the Rai Valley and Marlborough Wine Region to stop at our secret Marlborough Winery for some famous NZ wine tastings. Then it's down the coast to spy New Zealand fur seals at Ohau Point before reaching our destination at Kaikoura. This afternoon we can tackle the elements on the very scenic Kaikoura Peninsula Walk.

Then on to Christchurch, which has recovered from the 2011 Earthquake and bounced back with new pop-up bars and a shopping precinct, with still more to come.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Dolphin swimming
-Whale watching

Excited? You should be.

Day 6 Fox Glacier to Queenstown

Today's your chance to walk on water. Well, frozen glacial water to be precise. Scale a mountain in minutes to get amongst ethereal ice caves and formations.

Day 7 Queenstown

Here's some basic math: Queenstown has over 220 activities-you have two days. No rush. This lakeside city has adrenaline on tap and will match any adventure you had in mind and then throw a Fergburger (amazing Queenstown burger place) in there for good measure. Get your fix with bungy, a narrow canyon swing, Shotover Jet, or paragliding, hiking, horse riding and the skyline gondola. If you're bored here, there's something wrong. Need some time out? Head to the Kiwi Birdlife Park, or kick back with a local pinot.

Maori myth, this is a history and geology lesson rolled into one, minus the homework.
