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, New York 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.   Air New Zealand is the most reliable domestic carrier for for this short 60 minute flight.  If you are a 'visual' person, scroll down to see the map below..!

We 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.

Let us put you in touch with our New Zealand based Travel Agent who has worked with us for years and does a great job of organizing  our hunters flights and sightseeing tours.
