Hawke's Bay - Private Travel

Fresh air, fresh food, sprawling vineyards, golden beaches – Hawke’s Bay is New Zealand’s resort playground.

Hawke’s Bay on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island is well-known as Food and Wine Country. Its fertile plains, vineyards and orchards turn out magnificent farm-to-table goodness and incredible wine. Plentiful private tours give guests a real taste of true New Zealand bounty – and hospitality – throughout the region.

As the oldest wine-growing region in New Zealand, Hawke’s Bay is internationally prized for its superb Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, as well as for excellent Chardonnays, all

thanks to long, hot summers and mild winters.

The coastal city of Napier is the cultural capital, renowned for its Art Deco buildings, fine-art galleries, and abundance of restaurants and wine bars. Hastings is on par with Napier on the food front, offering artisanal markets, farm-to-table restaurants and outdoor fun. The Hastings suburb of Havelock North is a tree-lined

town unto itself, a thriving arts community known for galleries, charming cafés, boutique shops and specialty food stores.

Near Havelock, Te Mata Peak sweeps up from the banks of the Tukituki River, its stone escarpments lending a Scottish Highland feel. The mountain is part of the Te Mata Trust Park, which offers almost 20 miles of “tramping” and biking trails, plus views of Hawke’s Bay that will fill your camera. The brave can also paraglide for the ultimate view of the landscape.

Cape Kidnappers, a small peninsula named after an attempt by a Maori local to kidnap one of Captain Cook’s crewmembers, is home to world-class golfing, an amazing spa and one of the world’s largest colonies of gannets. Further south, Waimarama Beach is a stunner, a popular weekend and picnic hub for swimming, fishing or surfing, or for getting your steps in on the hiking trails.

What is the most memorable vacation you have planned for a client?

I planned a lady’s trip to Portugal, for 8 women all celebrating landmark birthdays. We had our own Benz van with a driver and picked up local guides in each area. It was a lot of fun to put together!
