Bespoke trips that highlight hidden gems and immersive local experiences are among the top requests from Farag’s clients. So whether she’s crafting an itinerary for a pair of discerning millennials or a well-traveled multi-generational family, the Aucklander draws on her 20-plus years to plan activities like a helicopter ride to the rarely visited Lyell Glacier and a hands-on private foraging cruise around the Marlborough Sound. “Having traveled extensively and worked in the local tourism industry for more than two decades, my strong industry connections can also open doors and provide access to people and places that others quite simply can’t,” explains Farag.
Among her recent spectacular hotels finds are The Lindis, a sleek modern lodge in the Ahuriri Valley. “Spectacular surrounds, impeccable service, fine food and wine come together here,” says Farag. “The lodge also offers access to unspoiled wilderness that invites adventures such as fishing, horseback riding, hiking, and gliding.”
