Heli Photo Safari
Raise the bar on ‘The Perfect Honeymoon’ with a Heli Photo Safari.

Make the date even more special by hiring a personal candid photographer who will capture all the beautiful moments, taking the experience into forever.
Candlelight Hot Pools
The hot pool is the ultimate aqua powered relaxation you need after a tiring day full of activity. New Zealand hot pools come ensconced in a cedar-enclosed private pool-room with pure water and the warm glow of flickering candlelight. Embrace each other and the magic of the night and then surprise your lover when you add starlight to the ambience by retracting the roof and front wall with just the press of a button. Take in the unmediated views of the breathtaking alpine scenery! Breathe in. That’s the universe smiling at your love!
You read that right! Sail through Taupo’s lush water while watching a blockbuster movie on a 3-metre outdoor screen! Enjoy the sunset and spend the night out snuggling up to your beloved (who needs the ponchos provided) while New Zealand takes you on the best movie cruise experience you will ever have.
Cycling in the Vineyards
Take the two-wheeled approach and get up close and personal with Kiwi culture. Work up an appetite and quench it at the cellar doors of New Zealand’s Vineyards on the way as you spend the day with your beloved meandering along quiet country roads and through quaint wine villages. Relish their wines and a delicious picnic of local deli – wine, food, sunshine and your love. You won’t want for more.
