Keep­ing the kids en­ter­tained th­ese school hol­i­days just eas­ier. School-aged kids go free on a range of trips with Real Jour­neys, when ac­com­pa­nied by a full-fare-pay­ing adult (up to two chil­dren per adult). Glit­ter­ing Glow­worms This is a trip full of en­chant­ment. The cruise starts at Te Anau and crosses the lake to un­der­ground caves sculpted by rush­ing wa­ter. A na­ture guide steps you past the gush­ing wa­ter­falls into the quiet and com­plete dark, where glow­worms shim­mer in their thou­sands. Tip: Kids love this ad­ven­ture! Mil­ford and Doubt­ful Sound Turn your hol­i­days into an ad­ven­ture the fam­ily will never for­get, head to the fiords of our World Her­itage Area. Just twenty min­utes drive from Te Anau, the vil­lage of Manapouri is the start­ing point of your jour­ney to Doubt­ful Sound and a Zealand. Chil­dren love feed­ing the farm­yard an­i­mals and cheer­ing on the sheep­dog round­ing up the sheep. On the cruise home sing along with the pi­ano player or sim­ply re­lax and en­joy the scenery.
