Top of the South Island 1 February 2022
Marvel at the coastal town of Kaikõura
A tour highlight on the 11 Day Top of the South Island itinerary is a visit to the coastal town of Kaikõura.
The township of Kaikõura is located on a rocky peninsula protruding from lush farmland beneath the mountains and is often referred to ‘where the mountains meet the sea’. Few places in the world can boast of such natural wonders as those offered here.
The region’s coastal waters are home to an amazing array of marine mammals and birdlife. Perhaps the most famous residents are the sperm whales who share this part of the ocean with dusky dolphins, fur seals and albatross amongst others.
There is the opportunity to take an optional scenic flight for a bird’s eye view of this fascinating region and its marine life.
