Itineraries: Activities

At Luxe Guides we do things differently. We learn about our guests and itineraries are written from the ground up, individually handcrafted every time.

A unique creative process is the core of our bespoke travel experiences.

We find it is best to connect either by phone or email. This is where we discover what your ideal tour of New Zealand would be - what it is that you really want. We then put our expertise into action and create a first edition of your exclusive itinerary. Should you choose to proceed, the process that follows is to refine the itinerary until all of your wishes are satisfied and all of the components are in place. This may take several edits and editions before it is perfect, but perfect it will be! Once you are here in New Zealand, we are here, and we are always contactable. We support our guests during their entire stay. If there are any amendments or adjustments required we are only a phone call away.

With so many activities on offer it would be difficult for any visitor to know where to begin. Once you have narrowed down what you would like to do, how do you choose who to do it with?

At Luxe Guides our job is to remove the guessing for you. We meet with activity providers, understand what they do, check they are safe, sound and their offering is of a standard befitting our guests. Then we make sure we take the time to understand what you want so that we can create a perfect match.

True Mountains

The mountains offer up a huge variety of activities, some for the wild at heart, some for those who want to get as far from civilisation as can be, some for those who want to try something new and some for those who want a taste but prefer to enjoy a relaxed pace.

Skiing, snowboarding, back country touring, mountaineering, heli skiing, hiking, fly-fishing, hunting, horse trekking, cat-skiing, snowshoeing, dogsledding, ice climbing just to name a few!

Culture and History

For a small country New Zealand is brimming with an interesting and diverse cultural history.

Meet the descendants of Maori chiefs and hear their stories, legends and lore. Spend time with conservationists who are dedicated to bringing rare bird species back from the brink of extinction. Taste wine with viticulturists and winemakers who have received international accolades. Visit Oscar winning special effects studios and visit the actual spots where famous movies were filmed.

Fast Paced

Queenstown has long held the title of being the adventure capital of the world which is apt considering it is the home of bungy jumping and jet boating but it doesn’t stop there.

Across New Zealand there are hundreds of mind blowing activities designed to get your heart racing – Zip lines, canyon swings, sky-diving, learning to fly, learning to drive a jet boat, white and black water rafting, paraponting, hot air ballooning, ice-driving, kayaking and plenty more.


We can't miss out on those who regard their precious holiday as a time to unwind, to take it easy. For those who want to return to their world feeling rejuvenated.

For you we offer wellness retreats, boat cruises, picnics in secret spots, yoga, winery tours, galleries, gardens, golf, markets and small town fairs, wellbeing and beauty therapies and of course an appetite inducing array of dining option from rustic brunches to fine dining and all that comes between.
