Honeymoon in New Zealand
Description of Honeymoon in New Zealand
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAs with all of our luxury holidays, this itinerary has been crafted to ensure that it positively effects the local communities and environments visited.
This itinerary includes trips to some of New Zealand's precious natural wonders, including Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound and the protected Hokitika region. By visiting these sites (all entrance fees are included in your luxury tour), you are supporting the preservation and conservation of these areas, and indicating to authorities that tourists are interested in protecting New Zealand's incredible natural environment, which turn provides more funding.
In New Zealand's rural environments, please ensure that you donít leave any litter Ė everything you carry in, you must carry out. Aside from the environmental damage, litter can be harmful to the wildlife.
We also make a special effort to recommend accommodation providers which have responsible and sustainable initiatives. For example, Hurunui Jacks in Hokitika is committed to making sure the environment remains unspoiled; there is no electricity at the campsite. Instead, the property uses eco-friendly wood heating facilities and old style lanterns.
PeopleAll the local guides referred to in this itinerary are paid a fair wage. We believe that using local guides is important, as it helps generate local incomes and creates jobs, plus it offers a more authentic travel experience.
We recommend independent local hotels, lodges, guesthouses and campsites, rather than international chain hotels, which helps support local communities and allows you to experience true Kiwi hospitality. For example, the locally-owned Queenstown Park Boutique Hotel includes a hosted personal service and a commitment to using local products in food, decor and artworks, to support the local communities.
This luxury New Zealand holiday also includes a Maori cultural experience with the son of a paramount chief and a chance to visit the sacred sites of Hokitika, only accessible to Maori. Learn about the great outdoors from the perspective of New Zealand's indigenous people, as well as traditions such as greenstone carving.
There are also plenty of opportunities for trying New Zealand's iconic cuisine, with home-cooked meals at independent boutique hotels and sampling of locally-made wines.
