3-Day Deep South Adventure from Queenstown

Our Three day Bottom Bus tour is one of the best ways to see the Bottom of the South Island.
In a minimum of three days you can experience the adrenaline in Queenstown, take in the breathtaking scenery with a cruise on the majestic Milford Sound in the Fiordland National Park, explore the Catlins wildlife and wonders and bathe in the heritage of Dunedin.
Want to spend extra nights at one of our stops? No problem you can hop off for a night or two and get on our next bus coming through. Want to catch a ferry over to Stewart Island (extra cost) and try your luck at spotting a Kiwi bird? Sweet as! We will drop you off in Bluff to catch the first ferry of the day. You can then spend a night, or even more, on Stewart Island and catch the first ferry from Stewart Island back to Bluff where we will be waiting for you to carry on through The Catlins to Dunedin.
