Stray Journeys Summer 17-18 Updates

Valid from 1 October 2017

As we prepare for the much anticipated upcoming Stray Journeys summer season, we have made a few improvements to our 2017-18 tour route that you'll be interested to know about. 

These updates can already be viewed in Stray Mate and on the Summer tour pages.

North Island: Southbound

In Wellington, the Weta Workshop tour will be removed as an inclusion, because our travellers wanted more time to explore the vibrant capital city and time to visit the world class National Museum of Te Papa.

Not to worry if you’re a Middle Earth lover, the Weta Workshop Tour will still be available as an optional extra (at own expense). 

South Island: Northbound

We are excited to announce we will now be overnighting in the spectacular Mt Cook National Park, home to New Zealand’s tallest mountain (Accom: Mt Cook Lodge). This will replace our overnight in Naseby in Central Otago. You can look forward to beautiful alpine walks, world class stargazing and optional extra activities such as scenic heli-flights while in the area. 

Instead of cycling in Central Otago we will include a cycling experience around some of New Zealand's most scenic lakeside trails in Wanaka.

On route to Christchurch you'll get the opportunity to sign up for an adrenaline fueled white water rafting experience with Rangitata Rafts, situated at the foot of the Southern Alps (optional - at own expense).
