Another day, enjoy and exciting white-water rafting excursion, as well as private touring of the region’s top attractions, such as the geysers and steaming lakes of active geothermal areas, Maori culture and a New Zealand sheep show. During ample leisure time, enjoy mountain biking or hiking on the lodge property, venturing to panoramic viewpoints or a local waterfall.

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 artisanal food shops, cultural sites and Napier, a seaside town filled with Art Deco architecture. One day, enjoy a private, guided bicycle tour of local vineyards, some of the best in New Zealand.

Next, fly to Christchurch on the South Island. Following an introductory private tour of the Garden City, 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 to take short hikes with views of the mountains, native forest and indigenous birds such as the kea, an alpine parrot.

Next, 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. Another day, take a spectacular private helicopter flight over the Alps to Milford Sound, one of New Zealand's most iconic sights, and land on a glacier high in the mountains. Also, enjoy a private half-day hike with a local guide into lesser-known but stunning landscapes. Upon request, we can arrange additional activities in the region such as horseback riding, wine tasting, bungee jumping and more.

Then, fly to subtropical Northland and Kauri Cliffs, a plantation-style Relais & Chateaux luxury lodge on 6,000 acres of rugged coastline overlooking the spectacular Bay of Islands. During ample leisure time, perhaps opt for golf, boating, fishing, scenic flights, nature walks, horseback riding, kayaking, tennis, diving, spa treatments, or cultural touring.
