  • How to Sleep Like a Baby in the Icehotel

    December 4, 2014

    Lapland seems to be chock full of snow hotels, and there is none better known than Sweden’s Icehotel. This hotel, built out of some 30,000m2 of snice (a special blend of snow, ice, and water that helps to insulate the hotel) and 1,000 tons of ice, is the 25th iteration of an idea that Yngve…

  • Being Immersed in Maori Culture in Kaikoura

    November 19, 2014

    When someone mentions a Maori tour, it usually brings to mind thoughts of mass tours in Rotorua that consist of a performance following a hangi.

  • The Best Photo Spots (from Dusk til Dawn) on Hamilton Island

    October 21, 2014

    The names of Hamilton Island and the Whitsundays are synonymous with tropical relaxation. Every year, hundreds of thousands of holidaymakers make their way to this chain of islands — possibly the most gorgeous along the entire Queensland coast — so they can kick back with a cocktail under the palms and listen to the tinkling…
