Viva's Best Bits...
Be wowed by the Southern Alps from the air as you take a scenic flight to Milford Sound from Queenstown. The flight takes you over two national parks and provides you with a bird-eye view of this stunning, largely untouched region.
A fantastic week in the South Island that can be customized to suit your interests; horse-riding on a high country station, hiking, e-bikes, glacier flights or heli skiing - anything is possible.
"One of my favourite walks is Hooker Valley in Mount Cook National Park, also a must for keen photographers" Tara, Team Viva.
