Travel Specialist

I'm here to tailor-make your perfect South Island holiday. Give me a call and I'll use my expertise to create your personalised experience.

Visit the stunning Kaikoura region of Aotearoa New Zealand for a four hour stay at the luxury Matai Peak Lodge. This beautiful retreat was designed by the Wildings family to let you experience their favourite place in the world, with stunning views across the Pacific Ocean and the Seaward Kaikoura ranges.

Upon arrival at Matai Peak, enjoy a delicious, locally-sourced lunch prepared by the family. After lunch, you’ll be taken on a full tour of family’s historical farm, Te Mania. Soak in the spectacular scenery and fresh, rural air as the farmer shares stories of the property's long and eventful past. Keep your eyes peeled for New Zealand's finest bred Angus Bulls along the way! At the conclusion of the tour, your helicopter will fly you back to the South Pacific Helicopters base in Kaikoura.
