Pristine New Zealand – A Walking Wonderland

by iflores on September 7, 2018

If time is of the essence and you simply have to experience the contrast between the North and South of New Zealand, while still keeping the pace smooth and easy (just like our Pinot Noir), then your journey starts here.

Cruise out to Waiheke Island, New Zealand’s most sought after island lifestyle destination, to walk the coast and sample wine before taking a short trip to the cultural heart and most dynamic geothermal area of New Zealand – Rotorua. Explore the outrageously beautiful landscapes of the volcanic central plateau, and then it’s on to the South Island where you’ll discover a new meaning of the word ‘dramatic’ in Fiordland and Milford Sound.

Walk the valleys and forests surrounding Lake Wakatipu and relax with some of the world’s finest wines from Central Otago. In true kiwi comfort and style, relish the diversity that is the ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’.
