Auckland
Auckland’s blend of harbour, islands, Polynesian culture and modern city environment has created a lifestyle ranked amongst the best in the world. The natural assets of Auckland have made it a dream destination for all kinds of travellers, from doing-it-on-the-cheap backpackers to cost-is-no-issue super yacht owners. Welcome to Auckland, our largest and most diverse city. Being at the narrowest point of the North Island it literally stretches itself from one side of the country to the other – from the Pacific Ocean to the Tasman Sea. This means, wherever you are in Auckland, you’re never far from the water. From big wild rolling surf beaches to a beautiful gulf scattered with tranquil holiday islands, the sea and all its attractions are why this is known as the City of Sails. From some of New Zealand’s best shopping and dining experiences to a cruise on the beautiful gulf harbour – a few days in Auckland is the perfect beginning or end to your vacation in New Zealand.
Activity recommendations:
• Waiheke Island wine and food experience.
• Harbour Bridge climb & bungee jump.
• Shopping in Parnell and Ponsonby.
• Americas yacht sailing experience.
• Fishing for Snapper on the harbour.
• Enjoying the panoramic views from Mount Eden or exploring the black sandy beaches on the West Coast.
Bay of Islands

The Bay of Islands is one of New Zealand’s great holiday destinations - enjoyed by 'Kiwis' and international visitors alike. This is authentic New Zealand - both stunningly beautiful and historically significant. With a sub-tropical climate, you can enjoy beach and water activities, go exploring one of the many nature walks, swim with dolphins, charter a boat to go fishing or to explore the 144 different islands in our bay. The Bay of Islands was where the first European settlers arrived, and where they forged the first relationships with local Maori - not always a friendly experience! The famous Treaty of Waitangi became the founding document for our new nation, and is celebrated every year at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. Each town in the Bay of Islands has its own unique culture and lifestyle - from the more up-market lifestyle focus of Kerikeri, to bustling Paihia with its focus on providing a great visitor experience, to the calming historic atmosphere of Waitangi and the Haruru Falls, and the beautiful and sometimes quirky sea-side town of Russell.
Activity recommendations:
• Explore the Islands by charter boat.
• A day trip to Ninety Mile Beach and Cape Reinga.
• Visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds.
• A day trip to Hokianga and the Waipoua Kauri Forest.
• Visit the beautiful town of Russell.
• Diving, snorkelling and swimming with dolphins.
Rotorua & Lake Taupo
Rotorua is one place where the turbulent forces that formed New Zealand are most evident. This city, on the Volcanic Plateau, has one of the world’s most lively fields of geothermal activity. Skyrocketing geysers, hot springs and boiling mud pools all tell you that this place sits squarely on the Pacific Rim of Fire. Rotorua is also the ancestral home of the Te Arawa people who settled here more than 600 years ago and their presence offers the visitor numerous cultural experiences.
See the clear blue waters on a summer’s day and Lake Taupo can appear the most beautiful and tranquil place in New Zealand. Appearances deceive. Taupo is more than a lake. It is a volcano with no top – a top that was blown off in one of the largest and most devastating eruptions ever seen on the planet. Visit the Craters of the Moon and you will see evidence of its fiery birth in the geysers, steaming craters and boiling mud pools.
Activity recommendations:
• Visit Huka Falls and the geothermal parks at Wai O Tapu or Te Puia.
• Enjoy a relaxing massage or treatment at the world class Polynesian Spa.
• Visit a Maori village and experience a cultural show.
• Take a twilight cruise on Lake Taupo.
• Experience fly-fishing in the pristine rivers.
• Take a hike in the Tongariro National Park.

Hawke’s Bay

There are two words that sit with Hawke’s Bay and they are Wine Country. Hawke’s Bay is one of New Zealand’s warmest, driest regions and this has made it one of the country’s leading producers of wine; notably red wines – cabernet sauvignon, merlot and latterly syrah – but also with some quite stunning whites. But there is much more than wine to this glorious place. It is New Zealand’s Art Deco centre, rebuilt in the 1930’s after a huge earthquake. It hosts the country’s most elaborate celebrations of Matariki – the Maori New Year. It’s a place where you can shop at the farmers market for locally grown delicacies, indulge in artisan gourmet food, and join the lunchers at Napier’s Great Long Lunch. And it’s a place where you can walk the forest trails of the Ruahine and Kaweka Forest Parks or the glorious beaches that stretch along the coast.

Activity recommendations:
• Take a tour of the world class wineries.
• Enjoy lunch/dinner at the Craggy Range or Elephant Hill wineries.
• Walk amongst the Art Deco buildings in Napier.
• Visit the largest mainland gannet colony in the world at Cape Kidnappers.
• Visit the national aquarium on Napier’s seafront.
Wellington

Wellington is New Zealand’s capital city and one of the most picturesque. Wellington is known as New Zealand’s arts and cultural capital and if you enjoy the arts this is the place to visit. Visit the galleries, go and see the world-class New Zealand Symphony Orchestra or the Royal New Zealand Ballet. Keep an eye out for the public sculpture - there are many interesting and contemporary pieces around the city – or follow the Writers’ Walk along the waterfront. Here you will find Te Papa Tongarewa. Te Papa, as it’s colloquially known, means ‘our place’ and it presents New Zealand’s story through art and interactive display. Te Papa is a must visit. Wellington has a vibrant café scene and some of the best restaurants in the country. It’s a city that enjoys fine food and great coffee!

Activity recommendations:
• Visit the Te Papa Museum followed by a tour of Parliament.
• Enjoy superb coffee and a relaxed vibe in the inner city cafes.
• Take the Wellington Cable Car to the Botanic Gardens and the Carter Observatory.
• Dine at Logan Brown, one of New Zealand’s finest.

Queenstown

Queenstown is the New Zealand destination for international visitors. Its natural beauty changes with the seasons, the lake gleams in the summer sun, and snow clad mountains tower above the township in winter. Queenstown is a great place to visit all year round. Nestled in beside the mysterious Lake Wakatipu, in the Southern Lakes district of New Zealand, Queenstown is a cosmopolitan haven, offering a limitless adventure, southern wine and cuisine, and breath-taking alpine scenery.

Activity recommendations:
• Take the gondola to Bobs Peak and enjoy panoramic views of the region.
• Tour the Central Otago wineries where Pinot Noir is a speciality.
• Visit Arrowtown, a quaint village with a gold mining history.
• Partake in one of the several adrenalin adventures including bungee jumping, white water rafting, skydiving or jet boating.
• Trust the chef at Amisfield Winery.
• Take a scenic flight to Milford Sound or a nature cruise on Doubtful Sound.
• Visit Walter Peak Farm via the TSS Earnslaw. (see image above)
