  • Iconic New Zealand-LP

    Iconic New Zealand

    The best of New Zealand includes time on both islands as well as lots of guided activities. As one Indagare client raves, “It was by far the most adventurous trip I’ve ever taken, and you were right to spend the money on the activities and not only on the accommodations.”

    • When to Go

      Year-Round, but note that the winter months can be cold and rainy.

    • Ideal Length of Stay

      7-14 days

    • Itinerary Highlights

      Guided hikes in stunning nature, scenic helicopter tours with a glacier landing, fly-fishing classes, meeting local farmers and vintners.

    • Days 1-5

      New Zealand’s North Island has a wealth of experiences, from getting out on the water at the gloriously scenic Bay of Islands on the northern tip and world-class golf and wine near Hawke’s Bay to fly-fishing at Taupo, cultural exploration at Rotorua and farm visits in the bucolic region around Wellington.

    • Days 6-10

      New Zealand’s greatest hits are found in South Island, including the coast track in Abel Tasman National Park, the gloriously scenic drive along the eastern coast and Queenstown and Glenorchy, the country’s de facto pinnacle of outdoorsy action. South Island also has the most spectacular accommodations – after all, the term “super lodge” was coined here. Indagare’s favorites are selected for their incredible locations and excellent food and wine.
