We recommend

Begin your honeymoon in Auckland, where chic restaurants and hotels cater to the needs of LGBTQ travellers. Luxuriate in couples’ massages before toasting your nuptials from your private balcony overlooking the vibrant Viaduct Harbour. Then venture north to the Bay of Islands’ secluded stretches of coastline dotted with private villas, where you can bask in tranquility together on empty white sand beaches.

Next, journey south through the top of the South Island, stopping to hike past trickling streams and grand glaciers. Reach romantic Queenstown on Lake Wakatipu, where you can shop quaint streets together and enjoy adrenaline-pumping activities before cosying up lakeside each night. End by exploring Fiordland National Park’s remote wilderness, cruising past waterfalls and peaks on Doubtful Sound. New Zealand offers countless backdrops for connection and romance.

Throughout your escape, world-class hospitality ensures complete comfort. Luxury accommodations extend amenities from couples’ massages to private helicopter tours to accomplished guides revealing awe-inspiring sights like Mount Cook and the fiords. Savor globally inspired cuisine enhanced by fresh local ingredients at top restaurants. New Zealand's LGBTQ inclusivity means you can be yourselves while experiencing both indulgence and adventure.

Whether you envision days spent beachside or vineyard-hopping, helicopter glacier treks or hiking past crystalline lakes, luxury cruising or cultural immersion, you can craft your ideal gay or lesbian honeymoon in New Zealand.
