Bay of Islands
Arrive into Auckland and travel north to begin this honeymoon to New Zealand perched above the spectacular Bay of Islands, at the multi-award-winning Eagles Nest. Spend days cruising among the 144 islands, swimming with dolphins, kayaking, bushwalking or just relaxing and soaking up the stunning views.
Drive south to Rotorua breaking the journey with a night in the charming town of Matakana, a haven for food and wine lovers. Arrive at the edges of Tarawera Lake for a stay at Solitaire Lodge; secluded accommodation in a gorgeous lakeside setting backed by the dramatic peak of Mount Tarawera.
During your stay take an exhilarating helicopter flight over Hell's Gate Thermal Valley and land inside the crater of the active volcano, White Island. Also take to Lake Rotoiti for a private cruise aboard Tiua, a 53-foot sailing catamaran. Try your hand at sailing the yacht, jump in for a swim or a spot of paddle boarding or just relax and enjoy the view, gourmet cuisine and premium wines.
Board a flight to the South Island and the exciting city of Queenstown. While Queenstown is renowned for adrenaline and thrill-seeking, Azur offers the perfect bolthole in a hillside setting with breath-taking views just minutes from downtown.
Venture to Milford Sound in style. Travel there by helicopter before cruising the rainforest lined waterways and returning to Queenstown by heli, stopping for an alpine landing enroute, amidst pristine wilderness.
Also spend some time at leisure with a wealth of optional activities from bungy jumping to jet boating or time to indulge in long lunches, spa treatments and star gazing.
Mount Cook National Park, Christchurch and Akaroa
Pick up a hire car and journey north through mountain scenery and vineyards to Twizel, on the edge of Mount Cook National Park. The following day continue past the iconic lupin lined shores of Lake Tekapo to the city of Christchurch and the Banks Peninsula beyond. Just one and a half hours east of Christchurch are rolling green hills, colonial history, golden sand beaches and small settlements, including Akaroa Harbour.
In our opinion the perfect way to end your special holiday to New Zealand is with a stay at Seascape. Located in your own private bay far from anywhere it truly is a magical and romantic experience. Spend your day's beachcombing, watching seals and dolphins and soaking up the utter peace and solitude.
