Get set for a Kiwi adventure
Big news this week with the NZ border reopening for travellers from April 13. This means you’ll be able to fly there and back without having to quarantine.
With this in mind it’s a great time to consider booking a Life’s An Adventure pack-free walking holiday to Aotearoa for the walking season later this year. And we have some fantastic walks showcasing NZ’s natural beauty.
First up is the Best of Abel Tasman Coast Track walk. Sitting on the top of the South Island is NZ’s iconic Abel Tasman National Park filled with rich native forests, beautiful beaches and idyllic inlets.
This 4-day walk (plus one pre-tour night) will take you by private boat to the finest parts of the Abel Tasman Coast Track meaning you miss out on the least interesting parts the walk – and let’s face it, every great walk has a few boring bits!
Accommodation is next level. Tucked away on the edge of a forest is the secluded Awaroa Lodge featuring a bar, library, cosy log fireplace, outdoor courtyard and the superb Harakeke Restaurant where you’ll be dining.
Next up is the 3-day Queen Charlotte Track running along the coast of the scenic Marlborough Sounds. You’ll discover ancient beech forests, fern-fringed coves and traverse ridgelines revealing breathtaking views of Queen Charlotte and Kenepuru sounds.
And once again, accommodation is first-class. You’ll spend two nights at charming Furneaux Lodge on the waterfront at Endeavour Inlet. Built-in the early 1900s at the foot of Mount Furneaux, the lodge is set on three acres and surrounded by native forest.
And for those wanting to extend their NZ stay, you can combine both trips over six days and really have some stories to tell the relatives back home!
And right down the bottom of the South Island we have our 5-day Fiordland Four Great Walks showcasing the iconic Fiordland National Park. You’ll get to experience parts of the Milford, Routeburn, Kepler Track and Hollyford tracks. And of course accommodation and meals are first class. And did we mention the wine?!
