Getting Here

Arrive in the hunters’ paradise of the South Pacific in 12 to 17 hours on a direct overnight Air New Zealand flight from either Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston or Chicago.

 

Once you've landed in Auckland, you’ll transfer to the Air New Zealand Domestic Terminal and fly south to Palmerston North Airport (North Island) where one of the Alpine team will meet you.  We recommend Air New Zealand for this short 60 minute flight as it is the most reliable domestic carrier.

 

We also recommend an overnight stay in Auckland or Palmerston North (preferred) to shake off the jet lag and acclimatize to the time difference. Taupo or Napier are also pickup destinations as they are also around a 2 hour drive to get to the lodge..

 

From our preferred pick up point, Palmerston North, our Rangitikei based lodge is a scenic two and a half hour drive "up country" with plenty of photo opportunities and getting to know each other along the way.  You will arrive to a warm welcome and in time to shower and join us for our daily spread of fresh and tasty food for lunch.


Also, we have United States and New Zealand based Travel Agents that have worked with us for years and do a great job of organizing  our hunters flights and sightseeing tours. Let us know if you'd like us to put them in touch with you.
