Itinerary Description:

This New Zealand luxury tour by Ker & Downey begins in the country's capital city of Auckland with an exploration of the city harbor and a picturesque drive to the Bay of Islands. With the Cavalli Islands and an award-winning golf course as a backdrop, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is nestled in a native forest overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Indulge in two full days of leisure, from golfing to tempting spa services, at the glorious New Zealand coastal retreat.

Continue your New Zealand luxury tour at Huka Lodge in Taupo, one of New Zealand's finest recreational playgrounds. Create your own adventures around the Lodge and surrounding region with fly fishing, golf, water skiing, jet boating, horse riding, sailing, and mountain biking. Next, experience the Art Deco capital of New Zealand, Napier, within the heart of Hawke's Bay Wine Country. Your New Zealand luxury tour allows for two days of relaxation, exploration, wine tasting, and cozy seaside views amid the undulating farmland and Hawke's Bay perch of The Farm at Cape Kidnappers.

Your New Zealand luxury tour then retreats north to Wharekauhau Lodge in Wairarapa, defined by 5,500 acres of private ancient forests, tranquil lakes, rivers, farmland, and the rugged coast. Spend two full days here, touring the grounds, indulging in various cliff-side activities, and relaxing at the spa before bidding farewell to the North Island.

Conclude your New Zealand luxury tour in Queenstown at the gracious Matakauri Lodge. With secluded suites and uninterrupted views over Lake Wakatipu to the mountains beyond, this quiet lodge just minutes from bustling Queenstown is a perfect end to your adventure. Enjoy a stunning helicopter flight over Milford Sound, an experience that is a must for any trip to New Zealand, as well as activities on the lake and in the surrounding national parks and a private tour and tasting with the owner and winemakers at Valli Vineyards. The sights and scenery will infuse you with Kiwi spirit and warmth on your return journey.
