When you’re on vacation, we know being comfortable each night is really important and we reckon a little luxury from time to time isn't too bad either. Imagine waking up to the scenery of Mount Cook National Park, or falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach in Punakaiki.

We understand the importance of a good night’s rest after an exciting day touring New Zealand, and that’s why we’ve handpicked all of our accommodation on our tours. Take a look at where you'll stay when you're travelling New Zealand with MoaTrek, these are all places we know well and have hand picked after decades experience so rest assured, you're in good hands.
