For a honeymoon bursting with surprises, New Zealand is the place to go. With its dramatic and ever-changing scenery, adventurous couples will be spoiled for choice.
Honeymoon days can be spent hiking through ancient forests, hopping around the Bay of Islands on a private catamaran, marvelling at the vast and soaring fjords of Milford Sound or traversing pristine mountains by train. A visit to the stunning Hokitika Gorge could see you crossing piercing blue waters on the famed swing bridge, or exploring the dense forest it cuts through.
With the option of enjoying a self-drive honeymoon, travel at your own pace and stop to take as many photographs as you wish. With vistas featuring snow-peaked mountains framed by pastel-hued lupins as far as the eye can see, you’re sure to want to.
After exhilarating days spent in the great outdoors, enjoy the comforts of a secluded and romantic glamping spot, situated on the banks of the river. Luxury accommodation combines with world-class food and wine to create the ultimate honeymoon which leaves nothing out. How about champagne breakfasts and exclusive winery tours? Or reclining in a natural hot spring after a Michelin-starred dinner?
To make your honeymoon extra special, Wayfairer have even joined with some Maori partners. Under the knowledgeable guidance of Bevan Climo, Hokitika’s paramount chief’s son, enjoy an exclusive experience hunting for greenstone along a stretch of the sacred Arahura river open only to Maori tribespeople. Afterwards, you can have it carved into a beautiful design for the most unique of honeymoon memories.
No matter how you choose to spend your time, a New Zealand honeymoon will set the tone for a lifetime of exploration and adventure together.
