Travel up the Kaikoura Coast to lunch in a Marlborough vineyard and visit Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre. Celebrate Christmas on Endeavour Inlet at Furneaux Lodge, reached only by water from Picton. Check out the sights and stay a night in Nelson and a final night in Punakaiki on the edge of the Tasman Sea.
I love this itinerary’s variety of land and seascapes. From the Canterbury farmland giving way to the wild, raw Kaikoura coastline to the Punakaiki Rocks on the West Coast. We make the most of beautiful Queen Charlotte Sound with a private dinner cruise and then on Christmas Day cruising further down the Sound to lunch at Furneaux Lodge on Endeavour Inlet.
