Our Wairarapa Wandering tour has a stay-put holiday feeling with three nights out in the Martinborough countryside at Brackenridge Country Retreat. On the way south we stay in Napier. From Martinborough we explore the Wairarapa coastline out to Cape Palliser lighthouse and Ngawi fishing village. Visit Greytown, where the boutique shops are tempting, and stunning gardens. Stay at the 5 star Bolton Hotel in the heart of Wellington, visit Te Papa and enjoy three private lunches along the way.
I love this tour's stay-put holiday feel with three nights to relax and enjoy Brackenridge Estate in the Martinborough countryside. The coastline out to Cape Palliser lighthouse is like nowhere else and you have to see the most incongruous sight in the Wairarapa, Stonehenge Aotearoa, sitting in a farm paddock.
