Cook, Glenorchy and 3 other destinations in New Zealand. South Island Off-Grid is a guided group trip that includes accommodation, meals and others.

New Zealand's south island is full of wonderful wilderness, which is why this adventure takes you off grid. Journeying into the thicketed heart of the South Island, you'll encounter unforgettable experiences every single day.
