Detailed Description

Your ideas of a dream honeymoon may include many different images. There are the classical tones of being alone on a remote white-sand island filled with indulgence, or dining at restaurants that always leave an impression. Reverie can also involve the adventure of exploring surreal landscapes that always imbue a sense of once-in-a-lifetime.  Australia and New Zealand provide a unique honeymoon destination as they seamlessly combine all these paradigms. Over 18 days, explore six perfect destinations, each with an inspiring backdrop that's incomparable to the last. Journey to iconic cities, tropical getaways, the red desert, white fjords, and the green charms of rural New Zealand.

Sydney provides an indulgent starting point, a city that's always celebrated exclusivity and luxurious experiences. Dine at the country's premier restaurant and experience urban life, then days later you will wander hand in hand through the eucalyptus forests of the Blue Mountains. Then travel into the heart of the desert to watch the sunset over Uluru (Ayer's Rock) and take a camel train to the majestic domes of Kata Tjuta. Lizard Island provides a new landscape, a small tropical outpost that's part of the Great Barrier Reef chain. Quiet white beaches dot the island with incredible opportunity to swim out to explore the marine world. Much like the other destinations on this trip, Lizard Island offers absolute privacy combined with a sense of adventure.

Continue to New Zealand's culinary hub, Canterbury, where a private cooking lesson introduces you to the atmosphere and flavors of a country. Spend several nights in Queenstown, on the South Island and a tranquil landscape of rugged mountains and alpine lakes. Amongst the excursions is a private helicopter charter to take you across the Fjordlands to land at a remote plateau that rarely ever sees people. Exquisitely green and gazing out onto the Marlborough Sounds, Nelson provides the final stop. Like each of the destinations on the honeymoon, combine luxury accommodation with unique activities and the privacy that all romantic celebrations deserve.
