Bucket list adventures for film enthusiasts, Scott Dunn creates a variety of inspiring adventures to both locations and invites guests to experience Mulan in real life by exploring these destinations in all their glory and staying at some of the best hotels within the area.

The majority of the film was actually filmed in the beautiful landscape of New Zealand and Scott Dunn invites guests to explore some of the dramatic scenery through the below itineraries:

1. Active South Island
An ideal trip for active guests looking to reconnect with nature after the Covid-19 lockdown, this two week tour visits new Zealand’s off-the-beaten-track gems within the idyllic South Island including the remote sheep farm, Lake Heron Station, the picturesque Fiordland region and the Ahuriri Valley which valley flanks are easily spotted in the film! Exploring the island in a 4×4 allows travellers to witness the beauty that New Zealand has to offer, and spot locations that appear in the new film. Guests will follow in Mulan’s footsteps with guided hikes over the South Island’s sweeping hills and enjoy other outdoor activities such as kayaking, canoeing, horse riding and quad biking. Scott Dunn organises a memorable trip complete with an overnight stay on the Doubtful Sound, retracing the steps of early explorers who navigated these often-foggy waters in search of a landing point on the island.

Scott Dunn also organises a variety of outdoor activities throughout the trip including hikes, helicopter flights and kayaking and at the end of the vacation, travellers will tour Central Otago’s many wineries and indulge in the region’s renowned Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
