Detailed Description

This fantastic 16-day tour takes you through the gorgeous landscapes of the perfect New Zealand honeymoon, whether for newlyweds looking for intimate, secluded lodgings, luxurious surroundings, memorable activities, or all of the above. No matter the season, this romantic getaway will have you luxuriating in candle-lit dinners by night and exploring the sensational sights by day. Travel the expanse of the South Island for a honeymoon that you will never want to end.

Your romantic New Zealand vacation begins in Christchurch where the blossoming gardens of the city welcome you with colorful glee. You will make your way down to Kaikoura where the seaside town sits along the crashing waves and luscious prairies. Your suite sits within the trees and gives you a heavenly view of the landscape. Venture out into the ocean on guided tours that will have you swimming with eccentric dolphins, watching out for fur seals, and witnessing the incredible sight of a whale breaching the water’s surface.

From Kaikoura you will travel to Marlborough where some of New Zealand’s most famous and best-tasting wines are found, in addition to being home to the South Island’s Sauvignon Blanc region. The wines range from decadent to fresh, where any taste can be found for any flavor that is preferred. Continue on to the Rai Valley where the seclusion of your suite offers more than just a serene experience with the farmland and forests. Venture deep into the valley on a horseback ride along the Pelorus River, and deeper still if you prefer to partake in the Champagne lunch. As you depart from Rai Valley you will leave the horses behind but not the dreamy quality that New Zealand provides as you settle into Nelson.

Once in Nelson you will be able to explore the stunning sights of Able Tasman. Experience a brief helicopter flight to an island where you will kayak the day away in the sapphire water of the sea. Fly down to Wanaka where the splendor of the Crown Ranges and Mount Aspiring National Park sits outside your window of the Lime Tree Lodge like a painting. You will enjoy the Siberian Experience as you take a romantic scenic flight over the Siberia Valley, over the glacial lakes and beech trees.

Your dreamy journey continues with a cruise through Doubtful Sound, where the glacial waters thunder down the mountains and the luxury cruise ship floats calmly in the secluded region of country. Arrive in Queenstown with a sense of adoring adventure as you speed through the river on a jet-boat safari. You will also be able to soar through the air over the famous Milford Sound and land on one of the glaciers in the area giving you a unique walk along the icy cap in complete seclusion from the rest of the world. Eventually your journey through New Zealand will come to an end but the romance never has to stop; we know the honeymoon never will.
