Handcrafted hunting, Fishing & Heli-skiing
Journeys through the heart of New Zealand

New Zealand is not just famous for its massive Lord of the Rings countryside. World-class Red Stag trophies, massive Bull Tahr and Himalayan Chamois bring people all the way down-under to arguably one of the best hunting experiences of their lives high in the remote Southern Alps.
Hunting & Travel
New Zealand is one of the most underrated heli-ski destinations in the world! With so few people actually doing it seriously there is simply miles and miles of untracked powder to be had virtually every single day. Combine signature Monarch luxury lodges, incredible travel experiences, fine food and wine, with some of the most amazing backcountry skiing you will ever experience.
Heli-ski Safaris
New Zealand is a never-ending maze of Trout and Salmon rich rivers. Many are exclusively accessed by Monarch by helicopter. Casting a fly up-river in the early morning sun for the cautious Rainbow Trout or stalking a glacial fed stream for the big Browns creates ever lasting memories.

I have been very lucky in life that I have got to travel the world and see some amazing places in my job as a rugby player. However, my heart and feet have always been firmly rooted in the towering Southern Alps around Canterbury. I grew up in those hills and today I am just as happy in a 5,000 acre back country field as “on the field”. Yet playing for the All Blacks and the Crusaders has given me one thing I always carry, an incredible sense of pride in New Zealand. Monarch is a manifestation of that pride - it gives me the ability to do what I love, roaming the mountains and showing off “my home” to international travellers, sharing the same passions as I do for fine New Zealand cuisine, local wines, out of this world luxury lodges and mind blowing outdoor experiences.
