In the south-western corner of New Zealand lies the majestic Fiordland, home to the snow-capped Southern Alps, remarkable glacier-carved fiords, ancient rainforest, shimmering lakes, spectacular waterfalls, and pristine vistas.

One lucky foodie will be whisked away to this picture-perfect destination thanks to our friends at Fiordland Discovery – a family owned and operated Kiwi company with roots deeply entrenched in this incredible region – for a Fiordland adventure valued at over $10,000.

The highlight of this once-in-a-lifetime experience is a luxury seven-day cruise for two aboard the Fiordland Jewel to explore the stunning Preservation Inlet and the surrounding southern fiords while taking in New Zealand’s largest national park in complete luxury.

Custom-built by husband and wife team Rob Swale and Kate Rollason, the one-of-a-kind Fiordland Jewel catamaran features a helipad, hot tub, nine cabins with private ensuites and chef-prepared cuisine.

The journey kicks off with a scenic helicopter ride from Te Anau. Take in the breathtaking views from the air as you make your way to the Fiordland Jewel in Preservation Inlet. For the next five days, cruise through the awe-inspiring Dusky and Breaksea Sounds, and Preservation and Chalky Inlets, with the option of some fishing if the weather permits (fingers crossed!). On the last day, the Fiordland Jewel departs from Deep Cove in Doubtful Sound and heads to Manapouri for the end of the adventure.

Included in this amazing prize is:

  • Helicopter transfer from Te Anau to the Fiordland Jewel
  • All meals
  • Complimentary tea & coffee
  • Toiletries available – Body Wash & Shampoo/Conditioner (Evolu)
  • Hairdryer in each cabin
