Welcome to New Zealand, a spacious country with a dramatic landscape that belies the humble slither on the map. Your first stop is a three night stay at the Bay of Islands and the luxurious surrounds of The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs.

Days 4 – 6 Hawkes Bay
Fly down to Hawke's Bay, the nation's oldest wine-growing region and still a top wine producer. Wine is not only the order of the day, excellent hiking and a stunning cliff-top golf course complete the recipe for an unforgettable holiday to the region. There is no finer place to enjoy all of this than a three night stay at the Farm at Cape Kidnappers, set atop 6,000 rolling acres of pasture lands.

Days 7 – 9 Queenstown
It’s time for a change of scene - and tempo - as you fly from laid-back North Island to alpine South Island, famous for the high-octane adventures it offers amongst its snow-capped mountains, raging rivers and spectacular fjords. Matakauri Lodge is one of Queenstown’s most elegant secret escapes and the perfect base from which to enjoy the very best the region has to offer.

Days 10 – 15 Laucala, Fiji
There is no finer place to relax after an adventure packed New Zealand journey than the private island refuge of Laucala. Just 25 Fijian-styled villas are set amid a backdrop of verdant mountains, coconut plantations and white sandy beaches. There are plenty of activities to enjoy here, including a wide variety of water sports, rainforest walks, diving, snorkelling, sailing, golf, farm visits, horse riding and cultural visits to the local village plus traditional Fijian therapies at the world class spa. The resort also has its own deep flight submarine available for one hour underwater trips, a must during your 5 night stay.
