Special guests are invited to experience an exclusive 10-day luxury tour of New Zealand hosted by Frontiers International Travel President Mike Fitzgerald. Guests of the tour will experience a mixture of New Zealand’s refined lifestyle and cultural excitement through excursions like hiking, private helicopter rides, garden tours, jet boating, vineyard visits and more.

The tour will begin with three days on the North Island in Hawke’s Bay. Considered to be one of the country’s leading producers of red wines, Hawke’s Bay plays a large role in maintaining New Zealand’s reputation of world-renowned farm to table cuisines and fine wines. In Hawke’s Bay guests will visit the premier wineries among a few other excursions before heading to a full week on the South Island.

While on the South Island, travelers will visit some of the scenic coastal and inland areas of the island, spending a lot of time outdoors in between bouts of fine dining and wine tastings. While in the Central Otago region outside of Queenstown, guests will experience what’s been named as some of the best pinot noir in the world before further visiting the wineries of the Christchurch and Canterbury regions.
