Chef Guillermo Muro

Our Scenic Freechoice activities offer a diverse range of sightseeing activities and dining experiences for you to choose from and tailor to your own pace. Take your time to uncover the little known world of the Bay of Islands, that few are privy to, during a variety of wonderfully immersive excursions.

You will get a chance to sample Olivado’s locally made avocado oil as well as some nutritious, freshly brewed K4 kombucha. Enjoy a stroll through the stunning vineyard of Marsden Estate and a taste of its famous chardonnay. As you savour the delicious local delights in the company of your small group (with a maximum of 17 guests), our expert guides will give you a brief tour of the history of the Bay of Islands and Kerikeri to complete the experience.
