What To Expect:
New Zealand Travel Tour Highlights
Spend almost two weeks in the lap of luxury as you experience the highlights of New Zealand while staying in the country’s most exclusive hotels and lodges; complementing these elegant lodges and retreats are a number of exciting activities. There is good reason that interest in New Zealand has skyrocketed in the past few years: charming cities, landscape of unparalleled beauty, and opulent accommodation make it a perfect vacation destination. This trip begins with a two-night stay in Auckland, the “City of Sails,” including an introductory tour of this exciting harbour city and an afternoon visiting famous wineries, kayaking or horseback riding on Waiheke Island. Fly from Auckland to Wellington for two nights at a coastal sheep station, Wharekauhau Country Estate, where a tour of the farm will give insight into the industry that has made New Zealand famous. Continue on to Queenstown and the Matakauri Lodge, a new luxury property, on the banks of a glacial lake, overlooking New Zealand‟s Remarkables mountain range. Experience all that Queenstown and its surrounding area has to offer with a day trip to historic Arrowtown, boutique wineries and outdoor excursions along the Dart River and a glimpse at one of New Zealand‟s most famous treks, the Routeburn. Make your way by helicopter to picturesque Doubtful Sound, where you will board a luxury boat for the night as it gently cruises the Sound. Your final stop is the Bay of Islands, where you will stay at the world-famous Kauri Cliffs Lodge. Take a scenic flight to nearby Cape Reinga exploring its secluded bays and expansive 90 mile beach. Finally, fly to Auckland to catch your outbound departure flight.
