You will learn about New Zealand's lore and culture, taste the local kai, and experience what it is that makes New Zealand one of the best places in the World to live.
We call it Manaakitanga.
A once in a life time trip to d'Urville Island, in the remote reaches of the Marlborough Sounds. Try blue cod fishing, meet the locals and hear stories from the island's early history.
