In the North Island we discover authentic Maori culture around Rotorua and visit Tongariro National Park, in the South Island we tour the Mount Cook region and visit famous Milford Sound by land, sea and air. Meet the locals over private lunches at Lake Tarawera, a Marlborough vineyard and a mid-Canterbury farmhouse.

With a spectacular flight out of Milford Sound and private lunches with wonderful Kiwi hosts along the way, I can't think of a better way to see New Zealand. My favourite experiences include a catamaran cruise on a geothermal lake and lunch with Di and Ian Mackenzie on a South Island farm.
