Luxury, adventure and gourmet trails are only a short (and private!) flight away

In partnership with Navair

As winter well and truly sets in, the time is ripe to plan a trip across the Tasman. Aotearoa New Zealand is calling our name, beckoning us to its shores with the promise of adventure, luxury, culinary delights, and some of the most dramatic scenery anywhere in the world. So swap a dreary city winter for an adventure filled with promise, where a world of discovery is only a short flight away.

Thanks to Australia’s leading private jet charter company Navair, getting to New Zealand has never been easier, with round trip charters also ensuring you can fit even more into your itinerary than ever before. To help you on your way, we’ve compiled our top three types of New Zealand escape, so all you have left to do is book your Navair private charter and unlock the winter of your dreams.

Hit the slopes

There’s nothing better than a winter spent in the snow and New Zealand offers a ski season that rivals even the European slopes. With ski resorts and towns dotted right across the country, snow bunnies can satisfy their adventure cravings, while more casual skiers can indulge in a spot of apres ski.

Head to the North Island for a longer season (from late June to October), or go down South for terrain made for freeriding. Wherever you go, get ready for a true winter wonderland, with panoramic snow-capped mountains, fresh powder, and bustling ski towns all at your doorstep. World-class ski schools are also available in all major ski resorts to help budding skiers and snowboarders sharpen their skills.

Dramatic luxury

Design-driven travellers can plan an escape dedicated to soaking in New Zealand’s panoramic vistas, with accommodation options that celebrate the country’s landscape with all the creature comforts anyone could desire.

Experience true seclusion amongst the waves at Annandale, stay riverside at Huka Lodge, or sink into the Ahuriri Valley landscape at The Lindis. Wherever you’re headed, New Zealand’s design scene has a luxurious escape ready to accommodate you and your guests, where the beautiful interiors can only be matched by the extraordinary landscapes that are just outside.

Gourmet trails

New Zealand is fast becoming one of our favourite destinations for gourmet indulgence, with their colder climate producing truly exceptional food and wine. If you’re after a delicious escape, why not book a round-trip with Navair, and try all the delicacies New Zealand has to offer?

Sample some of the world’s leading wines, with vineyards dotted across the nation. Follow the itinerary of master sommelier Cameron Douglas and you’ll also cover some serious sight-seeing, with some of New Zealand’s best drops found amongst the beautiful vistas of Waiheke Island, Hawke’s Bay, and Marlborough. Hike through rolling hills, sample wines on a private sailing tour, or spend a day in one of New Zealand’s many exquisite dining venues (our pick is Ayrburn on the South Island) and give all your senses the attention they really deserve.

Fly your way

At its heart, New Zealand is a place of possibility, where potential is tucked behind every corner. With so much to experience, it’s quickly becoming one of our go-to recommendations for holiday destinations to suit travellers of all persuasions. Adding to its appeal is the quick flight time and the possibility for a more bespoke approach to travel, with Navair able to provide a memorable, simple and luxurious transportation service to and from Aetoroa’s isles.

With two luxury jets able to make the journey, Navair can have you jetting to, from and around New Zealand in style, with the Citation CJ3+ or Phenom 300 . Expect spacious cabins complete with luxurious leather interiors, with service that will ensure you and your party are comfortable and relaxed from the moment you leave your door.

Whatever you have planned for your New Zealand escape, Navair will ensure you have a trip to remember, connecting you to one of the world’s best destinations so you can get ready to indulge, unwind, or experience the adventure of a lifetime.
