East Cape
February 2021

The East Cape of the North Island has a rugged beauty inspired by its isolation and on this tour you will be travelling on one of the world’s greatest and least known coastal road trips. This will be a leisurely journey because around every corner there is something new to see: stunning coastal scenery, white picture postcard bays and coves, remote settlements and farming communities and the ornately carved gateways of the many Marae. Its rich bicultural history makes this a unique destination.  You will have the opportunity to meet some of the local characters working on the out of the way back country stations. With a warm Mediterranean climate, clear blue skies and warm sunshine, this an ideal opportunity to explore some of the local treasures in a part of New Zealand you may not have seen. You will enjoy two-night stays at most stops, meaning time to relax and less packing and unpacking.

Top of the South
March 2021

The top third of the South Island is an area of wonderful contrasts, from the glittering waterways of the Marlborough Sounds and Abel Tasman National Park to the rugged mining landscapes  of the Denniston Plateau and the spectacular high country of Hanmer Springs and Molesworth Station. Take your time seeing the best of the region with several two-night stays. For nature lovers marine and bird life abound in the Marlborough Sounds and at Farewell Spit. Top it off with whale watching off the Kaikoura coast. The late summer weather, luscious local wine and fresh produce, compelling history and scenic grandeur will make this a trip to remember.
