Kia Ora.Welcome.

Imagine discovering destinations that inspire, motivate and reward. Our collection gives you access to contacts offering unique experiences in different regions – valid, exciting moments immersed in the creative, culinary and arts culture of a chosen destination. These are hands-on experiences designed to rejuvenate the mind, the body and the soul by taking part in inspirational creative or culinary activities. The bonus is the learning of new skills. New Zealand certainly has some of the most aweinspiring locations in the world and the most pleasurefilled activities from which to appreciate them – luxury living on-water, participating in a high country station cattle muster or kayaking through fiords. In a world where of many beautiful places, however, there is one feature that sets New Zealand apart from everywhere else. Your first introduction to Maori culture may be through an exclusive koru airport welcome to the land of the long white cloud, Aotearoa, New Zealand. You could spend time with an elder to gain a Maori perspective on the bi-cultural nature of New Zealand both historical and contemporary. You may care to make

music with a player of traditional Maori instruments or to learn the intricacies of traditional art forms including carving (whakairo), weaving (raranga), song (waiata),  and dance (kanikani, including haka) with leading practitioners. Like many indigenous people, Maori have a special affinity with both land and sea. Throughout the unique and colourful history fishing was – and indeed still is - an important task as a food source. Today’s authentic experiences can include being taken to collect shellfish from the shore and cooking the harvest with indigenous herbs for a splendid lunch. The more adventurous could explore the waters on a kayak fishing trip or, in a world first, kite fishing from the rugged black sands of the wild west coast of Auckland. Nature-based activities can include dolphin and whale watching, guided bush-walking, bird-watching or astronomy.  Secluded islands and river waterways around the Auckland region can be explored in the luxury of a catamaran or riverboat. Or, further south, immerse your senses in the magnificence of the world heritage Doubtful Sound on a private expedition vessel. Exclusive -use accommodation options range from

private lodges, historic homestead or a vineyard retreat. Transport options include customised helicopter excursions, luxury on water experiences and 4WD private guided charters to explore genuine New Zealand. Your activities can include heli-golfing, game-fishing or heli-skiing. In one exclusive location there are typical New Zealand activities such as stock-handling, horse riding, sheep shearing and sheep dog mustering.You may never want to return to the city again. New Zealand is both rural and urban. High class culinary experiences can include foraging for wild herbs and indigenous plants to use in contemporary fare. The piece de resistance, then, is surely enjoying personal cooking tuition by a master chef in a winery or an olive grove setting. All products are available for exclusive use and have a common thread - delivering on the promise of New Zealand as the ultimate destination.
