New Zealand luxury

Crooked Compass launches luxury New Zealand holidays with Classe.

25 June 2020


Crooked Compass’s luxe brand Classe has launched with three exclusive itineraries for travellers visiting New Zealand in 2021.  The curated excursions offer exclusive wilderness accessed by helicopter and private boat, age-old Maori practices and luxury lodges.

Those who like to mingle with the finest winemakers will love the Myths and Mountains itinerary that entwines storytelling and indigenous culture with food and wine. Kayaking through millennia-old caverns with glow worms lighting your way.

This ten-day itinerary is available on its own or can be added with The Land Before Time, which explores New Zealand’s South Island. Discover Fiordland via helicopter and private boat and spot a wild kiwi on a beach at Steward Island. Age-old Maori cultural practices will give you a deeper connection to the life of this land.

These are group tours with a maximum of eight per departure.


In response to COVID-19, Crooked Compass is offering peace of mind on bookings made in 2020, honouring pricing and waiving change fees for bookings postponed as a result of COVID-19. Additional health and safety measures will be implemented on all departures, in line with government regulations.

Crooked Compass is a boutique tour operator uncovering the world’s best-kept secrets through small group touring and customised itineraries. Created to inspire and educate through culturally immersive experiences and the power of storytelling, itineraries offer travellers a new perspective on a deeply personal level.

Crooked Compass strategically and sensitively integrates local communities, aligning with their values and protecting the authenticity of their culture.
