Central Otago is know as the fruit bowl of the south with its plentiful stone and pip fruit orchards among the spectacular Central Otago vineyards. The West Coast is a seafood haven, wild foods hub and productive dairy region. Canterbury delivers on beef & dairy resulting in moreish pies. We’ll dine on some of the best quality produce straight from the land to your fork as we travel through the regions.

We always travel with Plan A in mind however we are acutely aware of the variables that make travelling so memorable. Travelling in late spring through summer and to early autumn is recommended when the daylight hours are longer and weather is warm and reliable.
