An extraordinary 3-day honeymoon in Fiordland and South Westland, for a Saudi Prince and Princess, 2020


This private itinerary was organised in collaboration with Neil Fox’s team at Based on a True Story, for a Saudi Prince and Princess to celebrate their marriage experiencing the very best of Fiordland and South Westland.

We planned this 3-day exploration of Fiordland, Mt Aspiring and South Westland with equal parts excitement and trepidation, conscious of our crucial role at the start of this young couple’s journey together. NewZeal® ‘s founder Paul personally led an itinerary of achievable adventure experiences to enable our guests to engage fully with these wilderness environments. This involved working closely with the Dept. of Conservation to secure one-off concessions that gave us the ability to undertake activities that had never been done before.
