Private entree into the cuisine, wine, gardens and art of New Zealand's Canterbury region.

A "Taste of Heaven" with Edible Tours.

An exceptional 5-day fully escorted tour of New Zealand’s 
stunning Canterbury region is newly available for lovers of 
panorama, cuisine, wine, gardens, art and local nuances 
from 28 October to 1 November inclusive this year.

Titled “A Taste of Heaven” it offers private entrée to the 

elegance of the South Island’s lifestyle. The calibre of this 
25-place intimate and fully escorted tour is extraordinary. 
Listed accommodation is premium and guests travel by 
luxury air-conditioned coach.

Special privileged entry to the annual showcase event 

The Culverden Christmas Country Fete on Wynyard Station 
offers guests over 200+ stalls of finest produce and hand crafted 
gifts  - even running to a welcoming Pimms’ tent.

The fabulous Art in the Garden event at Flaxmere Farm 
showcases works by some of New Zealand's most talented artists, 
sculptors and jewellery makers and is set within a garden deemed 
one of the country's most significant, near Hawarden.

Hamner Springs, a stunning alpine village is also on the 
itinerary offering natural thermal hot tubs, spa treatments,
local cafes, fly fishing with professional guides and walking 
tracks – plus extreme sports for the more daring.

A particular highlight is a fine regional dinner in a private, 

secret venue hosted by the Rural Women of New Zealand 
and local winemakers. The chefs will feature wild caught 
salmon and venison. Another is a full Pegasus Bay Estate 
private wine tasting and Chef’s Choice 3-course seasonal 
menu luncheon.

A rare cultural Maori experience bookends a day visit to 

the delightful French colonial bayside village of Akaroa. 
Guests will be welcomed by Maori elders on to the Marae 
and will then be invited to assist in the preparation of the 
Hangi - a feast prepared in an underground pit. After 
exploring Akaroa’s charming streets and stores there is 
a return 4 hours later for this authentic ‘Marae” food celebration.
