Get inspired with new NZ itineraries

INSPIRING Journeys has released a new Inspiring New Zealand itinerary which weaves the tale of two great islands into a 10-day adventure. The itinerary covers the length and breadth of New Zealand, starting in Auckland and traversing to the country to Queenstown.

From Auckland, travellers will have the chance to pop over to the charming Waiheke Island to savour delicious Mediterranean flavours at Casita Miro before taking in spectacular views of the Hauraki Gulf at Mudbrick Vineyard.

Next up is Rotorua, where guests are treated to a traditional country-style lunch and a visit to the Tamaki Maori Village for insights into the local rituals and traditions, followed by a Hangi Highlight dinner. Next the itinerary brings travellers face-to-face with New Zealand’s indigenous creatures within the Rainbow Springs Living Village.

A foodie extravaganza awaits in Wellington, where a local guide allows visitors to sample the delicious gourmet delights, before they discover Zealandia, a 225-hectare conservation project that has reintroduced 18 species of native wildlife back into the area.

The itinerary then zips over to New Zealand’s adrenalin capital of Queenstown. The first stop is the gold-rush village of Arrowtown, before settling in for an orientation tour of Queenstown. The next day sees visitors journey deep into the Fiordland National Park to explore the wonders of Doubtful Sound. Finally, guests can choose between a wine tour, a guided walk through forest or a 4WD minibus tour in Skippers Canyon before the journey comes to an end.

The Inspiring New Zealand itinerary is priced from $7,025 per person twin share.
