“When in New Zealand, I would love to do the hot air balloon flight at Mount Hutt. With views across the Southern Alps and the Canterbury Plains at sunrise, I can only imagine it would feel like a scene from a dream,” Natasha, Content & Optimisation Executive.

“After a day of sightseeing around Queenstown, this hot pool experience would be the ultimate slice of paradise. Soaking in a hot spa while taking in the unreal views of the surrounding landscape is indulgence in its finest. Definitely on my must-do list for New Zealand,” Karina, Social Content Producer.
“New Zealand has some of the most diverse and amazing landscape our planet has to offer. Nothing would beat experiencing their glacier lakes, icefalls and the cloud-piercing Aoraki/Mt Cook from the scenic convenience of a helicopter,” Michael, Affiliates Manager.
“I’m excited to get across to New Zealand. I’d really love to stay in the geodesic dome’s in Otago!” Rebecca, Marketing Manager.
“At the top of my list is the submersible shark thrill ride. I mean, it looks so cool, and who doesn’t want to go in a personal submarine and leap into the air?! Caitlyn, Experience Consultant.
“At the top of my NZ bucket list is the Bay of Island scenic flight that touches down in the once off-limit Hole in the Rock. The views and landscapes look phenomenal,” Brittany, Group Digital Content Manager.
“A day sailing in the Bay of Islands on a comfortable catamaran and a very high chance of encountering wildlife such as common dolphins, orcas, blue penguins – what could be better? The operator has a clear focus on conservation, you get to snorkel, go for a short walk and sail amongst the 144 islands of the Bay,” Kristel, Experience Development Manager.
“I would love to take my hubby and kids (12 and 14) on this once-in-a-lifetime skiing adventure, as they are all massively keen skiers! In my youth, I spent a few ski seasons based in Wanaka – skiing Treble Cone which is a fantastic mountain in its own right. I used to see the helicopters leaving for these trips and would dream of the day I could be heading up there. I used to be so envious of the no lift lines, untouched powder and stunning scenery, it would be the ultimate day of skiing,” Kylie, Communication and Content Manager.
