Learn to surf in Raglan
Raglan, New Zealand | Day 1 & 2
In the small & unassuming coastal town of Raglan, travellers will find some of the best surf in the world along with an environmentally conscious local community, who have banned single-use plastic and packaging in all cafes.
During a 2-night stay at the award-winning Camp Glenorchy Eco Retreat, you’ll learn how this accommodation has been designed, built and operated in line with the philosophy and principles of the Living Building Challenge (LBC), recognised as the most stringent environmental building design certification in the world. It reflects and celebrates the natural and cultural environment through buildings designed with non-toxic construction materials, native plantings, and creative touches from New Zealand artists and craftspeople.
We’re passionate about protecting New Zealand’s unique beauty and heritage. That’s why take you off the beaten track, to ‘second cities’ and remote lodges, and work with local, eco-conscious suppliers. But that’s not all: from visiting the Treadright-supported Kiwi Hatchery to providing lunch for a kid in need via local charity Eat My Lunch, this trip is packed with sustainable experiences that are as inspirational as they are educational.
