New Zealand Photo Tour (Best of South Island) 

24th January - 30th January 2015

 

This Photo Tour is aimed at true adventurers who love to be surrounded by a palette of dramatic scenes and the purest natural landscapes you’ll ever experience.  New Zealand is on every serious landscape photographers wish list.  The photography opportunities here are endless with glaciers, fiords, mountains, remote rugged coasts, wildlife, and rolling countryside all within a short distance of each other.  It is a nature lovers' paradise.  We'll take pictures of the iconic Mitre Peak in Milford Sounds, hike the breathtaking Routeburn Track to Key Summit, visit glaciers on the west coast which still flow almost to sea level, and even have fun trout fishing.

 

We will have a blast travelling around the island in popular camper vans and stay right up close to the most extraordinary locations for photography.  Our local knowledge (we lived in New Zealand for many years) and photography knowledge is priceless.
