Lakes & Mountains in New Zealand with Elegant Resorts

New Zealand features highly on many people’s bucket list due to its breathtaking scenery, luxurious lodges, superb wineries, championship golf courses and fascinating Maori culture. Lying within the Pacific Ring of Fire with active volcanoes, craters, glaciers and hydrothermal activity – it is, perhaps, no surprise that New Zealand boasts a dynamic landscape covered by mountains, lakes and rivers, and that it attracts those with a love for all things outdoor. From the more populated North Island, famous for its long stretches of beaches, ‘City of Sails’ (Auckland), Lake Taupo, wineries, steaming geysers and strong Maori influence, to the dramatic scenery of the south, which is dominated by the dramatic Southern Alps, glaciers, turquoise-coloured lakes and fertile Canterbury plains – New Zealand offers natural beauty and adventure galore. Visitors who wish to ski, cycle, hike, sail and play golf will be particularly spoilt. Similarly, those who are keen to go fishing will be utterly thrilled, with attractions such as fly-fishing at Huka Lodge in the north, to sea-fishing in the stunning Marlborough Sounds.

Whether you visit Lake Taupo (the largest freshwater lake in New Zealand) or Lake Hauroko (the deepest lake in New Zealand), explore the Tasman Glacier (the largest glacier in New Zealand), or enjoy the striking scenery and colourful lupins that border luminous Lake Tekapo, you will be reaching for your camera! Whilst New Zealand is full of adrenalin-fuelled activities to experience, such as heli-skiing, bungee-jumping or Queenstown’s shot-over jet – it is the majestic Mount Cook (New Zealand’s highest mountain), that will have a lasting impact. Past forest, alpine wilderness and intensely blue, crystal-clear lakes, Mount Cook stands proudly (and is reflected) above the mesmerising lakes of Tekapo and Pukaki. By night, the brilliantly clear starry skies provide another dimension to this spellbinding part of the world.
