Next, transfer through the bucolic countryside to Rotorua, a highlight of the North Island. Enjoy flexible private touring of the region’s top attractions, such as active geothermal areas, Maori culture and a New Zealand sheep show. Continue to the lakeside town of Taupo and Huka Lodge, one of New Zealand's most acclaimed lodges. One day, take a private cruise on beautiful Lake Taupo, and perhaps try fishing for the lake’s abundant trout.

Continue to Hawke's Bay, a beautiful region of vineyards, orchards, rolling hills and beaches. Stay at The Farm at Cape Kidnappers, an exclusive lodge perched high above the sea. During private touring with your expert local guide, visit local vineyards, artisanal food shops and cultural sites. Also tour Napier, a seaside town filled with Art Deco architecture.

Upon arrival, transfer through the Canterbury countryside to Grasmere Lodge, a luxury lodge on a historic homestead in the foothills of the Southern Alps. Enjoy a four-wheel drive tour of the property, as well as a private tour of beautiful Arthur's Pass National Park.

Then, fly to Queenstown, a lakeside resort and gateway to some of New Zealand’s most exciting and dramatic attractions.  Enjoy a private tour of a historic gold mining town, wine country and other regional attractions en route to Blanket Bay, a legendary luxury lodge in Glenorchy that has outstanding views of Lake Wakatipu and the majestic Southern Alps. One day, take a thrilling Dart River jet boat safari into the magnificent landscapes of Mount Aspiring National Park.
