Luxury Holidays, Accommodation and Experiences

The best things to see and do in New Zealand

The best New Zealand experiences and guided activities.

Authentic New Zealand; private hiking tours, high country cycle trails through the southern alps, individually guided birding trips on the Otago Peninsula, kayaking remotely beautiful beaches in our National Parks, listening to the stories of local Maori guides, wine tasting at some of our small boutique vineyards and tours of small gourmet providers, as well as superb golf and the world's best fly-fishing.  Most of our activities are small group or private trips, locally owned and operated. We have also included iconic, must-do, experiences such as seeing the Fox  and Franz Joseph glaciers, Milford and Doubtful Sounds and the North Island's Volcanic Plateau.
