No two Monarch trips are ever the same.
Each itinerary is customised to you.

But how do you know where to start if you are not a regular traveller to New Zealand? Here are some sample itineraries of trips we have created with our clients. Some trips you travel alone, others you can choose to have a Monarch guide in the background to show you the really amazing places off the beaten track, take the hassle out of driving or help with those things which are sometimes a little hard to organise in a foreign country.

On the sample itineraries below we suggest some of the variations that our clients like. Things like choosing a Southern Alps Taxi (we think you call them helicopters) to move between spots instead of driving, having the chef come to your residence instead of heading out, or adding in an extra day here and there. If you see an itinerary that seems of interest start by filling in the enquiry form where we will ask you for some preferences. We will then come straight back to you on your preferred method of communication at a time that suits you and start to shape the most perfect New Zealand adventure.
