Here at Ingenious Travel, we’ve always defined our “niche” as luxury travel, but I’ve found that this means different things to different people.

There are some people to whom “luxury” means gilded walls, gold chandeliers, velvet covered furniture… and of course a hefty price tag. That’s not how we define luxury, and it’s not what most of our luxury travelers are looking for when it comes to their vacation.

We tend to focus more on exceptional, authentic experiences, a high level of service and hospitality, and a focus on comfort and convenience. Each client’s experience is customized and personalized to their wants, needs, and expectations. Moreover, we don’t focus solely on price because “more expensive” doesn’t always mean “better.” We look at the value rather than the price when evaluating travel experiences.

While it’s true that most of our clients book exclusive cabins and high-end suites, that isn’t the case for every vacationer. We also have clients who are less selective when it comes to accommodations and choose to focus instead on activities, experiences, and dining options for their vacation.

What makes New Zealand so popular to visit by way of rail or road trip? Perhaps it’s the fact that while riding along in a train on a railway or on the road in your own vehicle you can view the spectacular scenery. Or maybe it’s the fact that you’ll see more of the countryside because you’ll be constantly moving from place to place. Visiting this destination and touring it in this fashion is certainly something you’ll never forget.

By Rail

When touring by rail, you have several options for where you’ll visit. Just three of the options available to you include:

  1. Northern Explorer: This is the longest running passenger service between Auckland and Wellington. You’ll enjoy views of fertile farmland, volcanic peaks, and the sparkling waters of the Kapiti coast.
  2. TranzAlpine: This route is considered one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys, and will take you 139 miles through 16 tunnels and viaducts from Christchurch to Greymouth and back.
  3. Coastal Pacific: This rail journey will take you up the Kaikoura Coastline, which are famous for views of the marine mammals, and whale watching. Bring your camera and a zoom lens for awesome shots of dolphins, seals and penguins.

New Zealand features some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. But, there’s more to a vacation than gorgeous settings. With that in mind, here are a few of the things you can see and do while in North Island New Zealand:

  1. Try their award winning wines – Sauvignon Blanc is made here, and tourists and residents alike contend that there isn’t another country in the world that makes a better Sauvignon Blanc than New Zealand.
  1. Indulge in the fresh local produce. Some say that the food here is better simply because they are so good at farm fresh to table in terms of cooking.
