Day 7 – Interislander Ferry and Coastal Pacific train to Christchurch

Leave your car at the Interislander ferry depot and enjoy the scenic cruise over the Cook Strait and through the Marlborough Sounds to Picton in the South Island. From here board the newly developed Coastal Pacific rail journey down the picturesque coastline of the South Island’s East Coast, eventually arriving into Christchurch for an overnight stay.

Day 8-21: Motorhome Hire

Pick up your comfortable motorhome for a total of fourteen days giving you ample time to explore the wonders of the South Island at your leisure. New Zealand allows motorhome users the option to ‘freedom camp’ meaning you can wake up in some of the most spectacular settings in complete seclusion.

Day 21: Farewell from Christchurch

Your adventure on the open road ends when you return your motorhome to the depot before a transfer takes you to the airport for your onward flight.
