New Zealand & Fiji


August 3 – 18, 2013  (15 blissful days!)


Imagine a winter wonderland where rainforests and glaciers, alpine, coastal and temperate climate zones all exist in close proximity. Picture pristine rugged mountain peaks - the "Southern Alps"- covered by dry “Down Under” snow and irresistibly diverse terrain ideal for alpine and Nordic skiing and snowshoeing.  Envision crystal clear rivers, lakes and fiords etched into the landscape perfect for jet boats, hiking and kayaking.  Dream of fertile green valleys and rolling hills framing cities and rural towns where you can pursue golfing, shopping, leisurely wine tasting, touring and world class bungee jumping.

We will be visiting NEW ZEALAND in prime ski season (comparable to February skiing in the US). New Zealand has a temperate climate so while mountain temperatures are 20s – 30s, the valleys are 50’s and a full range of unique adventures await. We will be skiing the largest and best ski areas and there will also be ample time to select from a wide variety of other adventures, some at additional cost, to satisfy your bucket list. After flying from Boston to LA, our non-stop flight to New Zealand that departs in the early evening will allow us to have dinner, movies, and 5 – 6 hours of sleep before breakfast and arrival in New Zealand! Americans will get approximately 35% more for their dollar and tipping is not expected or readily accepted, making New Zealand one of the best values for the money anywhere.

Oh, and did we mention that we are stopping in the island paradise of FIJI in the heart of the South Pacific for 3 nights/4 days en route home?  Bask on the beach with temperatures in the low 80’s.  Snorkeling, kayaking, canoeing and full resort amenities are included.  Optional adventures include island hopping, sea kayaking, village visits and whitewater rafting.
