Paradise Found

“This ranks as one of the most unique stays imaginable... an utterly divine location accessible only by helicopter. A beauty and solace found in the utter isolation, a paradise ringed by majestic waterfalls and a superb landscape. The lodge has amazing staff and exquisite cuisine to boot. A day in the Fiordland with your own helicopter and guide should be on every one's bucket list! A stay that you'll never forget!”
