Are you and a group of friends interested in enjoying the best food and wine New Zealand has to offer? Perhaps you’re part of a hiking club and you’ve heard about New Zealand’s world-class walks, or you’re interested in a destination wedding in the beautiful Southern Lakes region. Here are a few group itinerary ideas.
The group of foodie friends
New Zealand offers a food and wine experience like no other. Vineyards stretch throughout every region and passionate chefs put a playful twist on beautifully fresh, local ingredients. The classic New Zealand wine trail is a food and wine themed journey through the Hawke’s Bay, Wairarapa, Wellington and Marlborough and showcases some of the country’s most beautiful culinary experiences – it’s highly recommended for those with gastronomy and fine wines high on the agenda.
The hiking club wanting to experience New Zealand on foot
New Zealand’s South Island offers some of the most spectacular hiking in the world. Awe-inspiring journeys on foot include beautiful waterfalls, alpine scenery, lush forests and beautiful birdsong. Tracks like the Milford and Routeburn are world-famous; and the landscapes they are located in are second-to-none. The central South Island landscapes come highly recommended for an unforgettable kiwi hiking adventure.
The rugby mad family
Rugby-mad visitors fit in well in New Zealand, because most of the locals are just as crazy about our national sport as you are. A good time to arrive is during autumn and winter, when rugby test matches are common and the All Blacks are likely to put on a good show. An itinerary that follows quality rugby matches throughout the country (interspersed with craft beer brewery tours and spectacular landscapes) would not disappoint.
