Luxury Experiences

New Zealand is renowned for its dramatic scenery and adventurous lifestyle. It also boasts many world-class luxury experiences.

Tailor-made luxury tours to suit your preferences and travel desires

Since 2005, Travelling Light New Zealand has specialised in creating luxury guided, small group and solo traveller tours around the North and South Islands of New Zealand and across Australasia. Our tours are made from the ground up and tailor-made just for you – to maximise your time in New Zealand and the places of interest to you.

Accommodation and travel are designed especially to suit your needs and we are often asked to incorporate many other things into our luxury small group tours – including helicopter access to inaccessible locations, culinary experiences, vineyard visits, whale watching, fishing, golf and high-country hunting.

We see it as our role to seek out the rare, the special, the truly unique – in order to ensure that our discerning clients have an experience that is unmatched.

We’re able to take you to stunning locations and use our unique local knowledge to ensure your luxury tour and visit to New Zealand is an amazing experience.

Our luxury tours offer the ultimate in flexibility. We can meet and pick you up from anywhere in New Zealand and drop you off at any destination – and create a luxury tour to take you between those two points.

Relax – it’s all taken care of!

We drive on the right in New Zealand and we do the driving, so you don’t have to. Our experience and knowledge of New Zealand is at your personal disposal throughout your luxury tour. And, if you’d like to combine your tour of New Zealand with Australia or somewhere in Asia, we can help with that too.

Whatever your wishes, we can put together a luxury tour for you to make them come true

Coming ‘down under’ to New Zealand is often considered a once in a lifetime trip, so make every moment count whilst you are here and let us tailor-make a luxury tour which features everything that you’ve always wanted to do!

From your first contact with us, to your journey’s end, you’ll find our attentiveness and attention to detail refreshingly reassuring. We’re all about you – so tell us what you’d love to do.

Whether you’re a solo traveller who enjoys the finer things in life, dreaming of a romantic holiday for just the two of you, or you’re a small group of friends who enjoy travelling together, we will create an extraordinary luxury tour and travel experience just for you.

We work with New Zealand’s finest: accommodation providers, luxury experience and activity operators, artisan producers, restaurants, chefs, artists and wine makers. Through us, New Zealand’s finest locations, luxury accommodation and experiences are at your disposal.

With a professional background that includes event management and diplomatic/VIP transportation and security management, we’re particularly well equipped to create luxury tours for visiting dignitaries, celebrities and other VIPs – where a concierge service, personal attention and exclusive accommodation and experiences that offer privacy and complete discretion are of paramount importance.
