Other Activities on our Hosted Guided Tours of New Zealand
DAY SPAS & HEALTH RETREATS
Our unique trips of New Zealand are of course Adventure Tours but that doesn’t mean you won’t get the chance to indulge in the more relaxing things in life! Boutique Day Spas for Men and Women are available at many of our New Zealand destinations allowing you to nourish the body and feed your soul! Melt your muscles with massage, soak in a hydro-therapy spa pool or bath, feel renewed after a body scrub, release toxins from your body in an infra-red sauna, relax with a facial, give yourself the gift of time, space and rejuvenation. There are opportunities to pamper yourself at many of our destinations…choose from some of the spas and day retreats in Marlborough, Nelson, Timaru, Hamner Springs, Queenstown and more!
Please let us know if you would like to pamper yourself and we will book this with qualified, professional therapists.
Shopping hours - Most shops and businesses are open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, as a minimum. Many stores also open Saturdays and some open on Sundays. In resorts you will find most stores open in the evenings. Banks are closed at weekends.
New Zealand offers a huge variety of shopping from arts and craft markets, galleries and museum shops to exclusive designer stores. For traditional New Zealand souvenirs look for examples of superb Maori carvings in wood, bone and pounamu (greenstone or jade). You can also find jewellery and ornaments made from the iridescent paua shell (abalone), treasured by Maori for centuries.
Alongside top international fashion in boutique stores in the main city areas, you will also find New Zealand's own award-winning fashion labels, including Zambesi, NomD, Karen Walker and World.
