Slow Travel

Considering a new mindset - “Slow Travel”?? - Why you should be...

I have had the chance to prepare trips around New Zealand as short as six days or up to far longer in length. When I am taking people for a ten day tour around New Zealand, there is a part of me that feels sorry for them. I mean, I know that this is what they decided to do... However I guess most of them eventually regret such a short ‘chase’. Especially when there is so much more to be pursued...

New Zealand is about its spirit, be this if you are in a rainforest, on a beach, or a mountain top, tasting delightful sauvignon blanc - you want to slow down, stop, take a slow deep breath, indulge the moment. To absorb this essence, you simply can't rush.

Slow travel is a mindset. The quality of your experience is more important than the quantity of your experiences when you travel. Embrace what each local region has to offer. Forget Lonely Planet or Instagram’s hotspots, and wander to the more remote corners. Just for You, regardless of the “Likes”. Allow YOU to Love... In the forest you can quietly listen to birdsong, observe several layers from mosses and ferns, and huge ancient trees. Be mesmerised by the orange sunset over the Tasman Sea. Let yourself submerge into the Kiwi culture. Sip a “cuppa” in a cafe. In the evening visit a local pub - characters from far and wide will welcome the opportunity to have a chat with you and warmly break down any barriers. Some pubs have live music on the weekend. You can dance or simply observe others and listen to the band.

We would love to show you the best of New Zealand according to your wishes. We can take you to all of the corners of Aotearoa and reveal to you and your group the hidden gems therein.
