TOUR SUMMARY

Fly to Rēkohu (The Chatham Islands) for an island adventure in a fascinating place ahead of New Zealand – and behind it – all at the same time! This intriguing island group is around 800 kms east of mainland NZ, alongside the International Dateline. It is 45 minutes ahead of mainland NZ time but perhaps a generation or two behind, with a rugged character and relaxed lifestyle. Encounter the real Chatham Islands lifestyle when you stay at Awarakau Lodge, the impressive centrepiece of a 445 hectare working farm. Learn about the Chathams from your comfortable, scenic base by the coast. Travel the island with your knowledgeable hosts for an intimate glimpse into the many special places and unique experiences the Chathams are renowned for. One of your hosts is a sixth generation Chatham Islander from a family that has been farming this part of the Chathams since the 1800s – so sharing the stories and history comes naturally! You’ll have a day trip to remarkable Pitt Island too, a special privilege very few Chathams visitors ever get to do. Pitt Island boasts spectacular coastal scenery and is home to some of the world’s rarest birds and flora. Meanwhile weka were introduced to the Chathams in 1905 and can be seen everywhere. They are so plentiful that Chatham Islanders call themselves ‘wekas’ instead of ‘kiwis’! You are sure to spot a few cheeky wekas during your island travels.

See the Chathams in style – you know there’ll never be a better opportunity than this!
