About this trip

Sometimes you just want to get off the tourist trails. Sometimes you're on the hunt for local experiences. Sometimes you're hungry for accommodation that’s truly special - accessible only by boat, or not usually open to the public. That’s why we've put together New Zealand Off-Grid. From learning the ways of Māori culture to hand-feeding parakeets in the wilderness of Lochmara, this isn’t more of the same: this is the future of travel - conscious, hyper-local and as authentic as it gets.

Auckland

Welcome to Auckland! We'll meet and greet in New Zealand's largest city today, before setting off on our first adventure.

Surf's up! Welcome to the laid-back town of Raglan, set along the mesmerising Manu Bay. As well as an easy-going surf culture and word-class swells, Raglan is a tight-knit and eco-conscious community. The people who live here champion numerous green initiatives to ensure the town has an environmental impact, and we'll learn how the residents keep green before hitting the waves. You can do as the locals do and opt for some surf lessons, or if you're after something a bit different, Stand Up Paddle Boarding is a great way to explore the coast with a bit more stability. As the evening draws in, we'll have the option to end our first day in style, with a cruise and dinner while we watch the sunset along the bay. NZ - you've stolen our hearts already, and we're just getting started.

It's also home to the Ngāti Whakaue Māori tribe, who will be our hosts for the next two nights. That's right, this is the first Special Stay of our trip, a traditional lakeside Marae, which is a traditional, ornately carved Māori home. Our hosts will make use feel welcome as they teach us Tikanga and Kawa, their customs and protocols. We'll then help them in the preparation of the steam Hangi (dinner) as they tell stories around the kitchen table. After a meal, we'll learn about Māori spirituality and healing practises, before the moment you've been waiting for. Yep, put on your best war face, as you're about to learn a haka!
