In A Nutshell

Stunning Island Resorts along the coast. Food, wine, scenery, culture, wildlife and history

There are a lot of beautiful places in the world, but New Zealand is really and truly a unique gem. It’s small, quiet and stunning. Incredibly diverse, yet amazingly compact. Look at the map and you’ll see there are two large islands—North and South. Both are brilliant and regardless of what anyone may suggest, neither is ‘better’ than the other. They’re just different. The North Island is best known for the relaxed city of Auckland, turquoise waters of the Bay of Islands, geothermal fanfare around Rotorua, scenic wine and farmland of Hawkes Bay, and the pretty city of Wellington where the two islands meet. The South Island is famed for the golden beaches of Abel Tasman National Park, marine life (including whales & dolphins) around the small Kaikoura peninsula, picturesque plains of Canterbury and full-throttle Lake & mountain glory of the Lake Wanaka & Queenstown areas. And yes, Milford Sound, New Zealand’s very own topographic exclamation mark.

Hotels

Top end Lodges Offering Impeccable Service, Mind-blowing food, and lavish Comfort

New Zealand has a wealth of wonderful small, owner-operated boutique or lodge properties, run with great care. There are essentially three tiers of hotels in the country. The top tier is the ultra-lodges, which are found in the countryside on vast estates, often spanning several thousand acres. The second tier is the boutique lodges and hotels – these are still quite charming with great service and comfort, Some of both the first and second tier properties include dinner and activities. In the third tier, you’ll find high end bed and breakfasts, small hotels, and boutique urban hotels in a range of sizes. Across the board, the calibre of accommodations in New Zealand is high to exceptionally high, and as stunning as you’ll find anywhere in the world.

Experiences

Breath Taking Experience in New Zealand

Milford Scenic Helicopter Flight – There’s no better way to get up close and personal with some of the most spectacular mountains and glaciers in the Southern Alps than in a helicopter soaring right alongside them.

Jet Boating in Queenstow – You’ll move at terrifyingly high speeds down the narrow Shotover River canyon, passing within inches of the shoreline and river bottom, and slowing only to make 360 degree turns. Fun (and wet) stuff.

Kiwi Bird Tracking – No, this isn’t about tracking fruit. Spotting the iconic bird of New Zealand is more difficult, but equally rewarding.

Abel Tasman Boat Charter – Board a catamaran and cruise around the headland to Split Apple Rock for some of the best views in country

Kaikoura Night Sky Tour – Get an introduction to the spectacular southern hemisphere night sky over New Zealand, with a combination of science and Maori stories to guide you from horizon to horizon.
