Nest Tree House in North Otago.
While travelling around New Zealand, why not make the trip extra special by staying somewhere a little unconventional?

With a busy life and the daily hustle and bustle regularly threatening to overwhelm, more of us are seeking an escape that reconnects us with nature. A good way to do that? Sleeping amongst the treetops.

With these accommodation options scattered around the country, you can experience Aotearoa’s beautiful views and great modern design and architecture from high among the branches.
