    Signature

    We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

    Bistro

    These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Larger than life landscapes

Incredible hiking, fantastic local wineries, coastal walks, excellent eateries, and blissful relaxation are just a sampling of what’s on offer on this immersive journey through New Zealand—not to mention the unforgettable scenery. Spend a few days on your own in the North Island discovering the cultural capital of Wellington before we whisk you away south to sip on the Sauvignon Blancs of Marlborough, swim with the dolphins in Kaikoura, and explore the unrivalled beauty of UNESCO World Heritage area, Fiordland National Park. This vast land, though marked by few people, is sure to leave its mark on you.

Walking Sticks & Hip Holsters

Included with all walking trips are Leki telescoping walking sticks and custom-made padded hip holsters, which comfortably carry one full half-litre water bottle. And while the walking sticks get “recycled” for use by another B&R traveller, the holsters are yours to keep at trip’s end.

Sometimes your B&R trip simply isn’t long enough! Extend your stay for the best vacation possible. If you wish to spend a few days in region either before or after your official B&R trip, and need assistance making those plans, your B&R Travel Advisor can help. We can create an independent travel experience to fit your needs—and if you desire, arrange for a local guide.

Stay in Queenstown

Your trip ends in Queenstown—the beautiful lakeside town known as ‘the Adventure Capital of the World’—and for very good reason! With a winery, bike ride, jet boat, bungee jump, mountain hike, artisan shop, designer gallery and superb lakeside hideaway for any kind of traveller, this is the perfect spot from which to extend your stay. With Fiordland right on your doorstep too, the options are limitless.
