Auckland
This vibrant city is well known as the City of Sails for its unique twin harbours, that are home to more than 500,000 sail boats and an endless number of beaches. Adding to Auckland’s fascinating identity are the 48 volcanic cones settled amongst the city. Visit one of these craters for 360° views of Auckland and beyond. Take a short scenic cruise out to Waiheke Island for your Gourmet Food & Wine Tour. You will enjoy succulent fresh oysters, award-winning olive oil at an olive oil mill and other locally-produced specialty foods, accompanied by wines from some of the Island’s top boutique vineyards.

Akaroa
This small town is the only French settlement in New Zealand and accommodates historic buildings, a magnificent harbour and exquisite locally sourced food. Explore this town by foot, visit Barrys Bay Cheese where original methods have been preserved for over a century, stroll past the historic cottages or head to the harbour to witness the dolphins, penguins and fur seals in their natural environment.

Stewart Island
In the Maori language this island is referred to as Rakiura, translating to “the land of the glowing skies”. It won’t take you long to find out why this remote island holds such a name. More than 85% of this island is National Park, with only 28km of road but 280km of walking tracks. This wildlife rich island is home to some of the rarest birds such as the Kiwi, which outnumber the humans on the island.

Fjordland National Park
One of the most dramatically beautiful destinations in New Zealand, where the air is fresh and the water is crisp. This mind-blowing landscape was carved by glaciers 100,000 years ago and today show cases waterfalls cascading hundreds of metres into the Fjords, surrounded by almost vertical mountains where rainforest clings, and deep blue water teeming with wildlife.

Picton
Cruise through the Marlborough Sounds to this picturesque town located seaside, with almost every café spotting great views. Stroll through the town and into the hills for spectacular walks amongst the native flora and fauna. If your up for more of an adventure, head out on a local fishing charter or paddle out in a kayak for a chance to spot a dolphin. No matter where you go, you’ll be surrounded by nature.
