This trip was designed for a couple that included a very special proposal. This New Zealand honeymoon package (or pre-honeymoon package) was a special self drive journey that we designed so that they could enjoy the scenic beauty of New Zealand and visit some specific wineries. With an assortment of romantic lodges and boutique hotels and a picture-perfect backdrop of mountain and coastal scenery, this trip provided a great feel for the outdoors and many off the beaten path experiences. They went kayaking to a hidden cove in the Coromandel Peninsula, enjoyed a private Polynesia spa session in Rotorua, and sipped wine in the Marlborough region. And the proposal went off without a hitch, which was a helicopter ride to mountain top with amazing views and a private picnic. And no worries, if the proposal didn’t go as planned, he knew we had him covered. Suggested Length: 15 Days
