Matuka Lodge

With Imagine NZ Travel, where you stay is very much part of the experience. We offer a wide range of unique accommodation, boutique hotels and luxury lodges. We regularly inspect the accommodation, and know many of the owners, hosts and managers personally. Tree houses, vineyard cottages, historic estates, eco-lodges, choices are endless. 

The majority of our sightseeing tours we offer are small and personalised tours. The guides we work with are the best available and offer a real insight in their region. New Zealand is jam-packed with things to do. Based on a detailed understanding of your interests, we can offer experiences, which focus on those interests. 


The Tiaki Promise
Imagine NZ Travel supports the Tiaki Promise. Tiaki means to care for people and place. The Tiaki Promise is a commitment to care for New Zealand, for now and for future generations.

Meet the team
Imagine NZ Travel was established by Nienke Jansen, who has over 30 years experience in the travel industry. She gained a strong grounding, working in travel agencies and travel wholesalers in her homeland The Netherlands. In 2006, together with husband Arno Jansen, she moved to the country they both fell in love with, New Zealand. Nienke worked for about 8 years for New Zealand inbound companies, before establishing Imagine NZ Travel in 2014. Two years later Nienke, Arno and their daughter Fleur moved to Wanaka and Arno joined Imagine NZ Travel full-time.

At Imagine NZ Travel Nienke, Arno and their team are doing what they love most - creating unique holidays in the destination they love. When planning a holiday in New Zealand you can rely on their extensive destination and product knowledge, creativity and attention to detail.
