SEA LION SWIM  | Kangaroo Island, Australia

Kangaroo Island’s Southern Ocean Lodge is perched on a secluded bluff overlooking a wild stretch of coast, with far-reaching views of the Southern Ocean and unspoiled Kangaroo Island wilderness. From here, a short helicopter ride lands guests on Thistle Island, where the Adventure Lady awaits to glide through the ocean to nearby Hopkins Island. Just offshore, get up close to the residents – playful sea lions – with a private swim. After this , travel to one of Australia’s best beaches, Memory Cove, where a personal chef will prepare a beachside lunch using local produce paired with local wine.

From $21,500 per couple. Contact Suzy Mercien-Ferol, owner, suzy.mercien@touringtreasures.com, +1800 536 5328, touringtreasures.com

 

HELISKIING  | New Zealand

Registered as a Unesco World Heritage site, New Zealand’s Fiordland National Park is an incredibly remote (and famously inaccessible) area of sublime natural beauty . See it for yourself from above with a helicopter flight through the lakes and alpine valleys. Discover the fjords of Milford Sound (which you can only get to by helicopter) and forage for lobster thst will be served as your dinner at Minaret Station Alpine Lodge. Then spend the afternoon heliskiing through hundreds of acres of untouched terrain – expect an average of 10 to 15 runs. Each trip is customized to create your perfect day.

Minaret Station Alpine Lodge Chalet from $3,000 per night, from $10,000 for day trip per person. Contact Suzy Mercien-Ferol, owner, suzy.mercien@touringtreasures.com
