Experience New Zealand

With no part of the country more than 128km (79miles) from the sea, the coastline is amass with sensational beaches, beautiful coast walks and every opportunity to surf, soak and lounge in the sun.
New Zealand is also an enormously attractive destination for international skiers as well as being the white-knuckle capital of the world. Pit yourself against your fears and try luging, zorbing, sky-diving, paragliding, bungy jumping, jet-boating and much more!
You certainly don’t need to be an extreme athlete to enjoy New Zealand. This destination is as much about its beautiful landscape - some of the most photographed in the world as well as being a hub of indulgent qualities - tour wineries that attract world accolades, sample cuisine that is fresh, diverse and full of flavour and enjoy strong, rich caffeine hit at one of Auckland’s many cafes.
Be sure to take in the wealth of Polynesian and Maori culture that forms the backbone of an increasingly multicultural society that can be found predominantly in the cities of Auckland and Rotorua or for a history lesson, travel to Northland and explore the architectural and historical significance of a colonial past.
New Zealand is a perfect holiday destination for any occasion, whether that is a romantic/honeymoon escape, family vacation, backpacking adventure, cultural extravaganza or a much anticipated trip of a lifetime. Your vacation highlights may include: exploration of a Glacial Lake, whale-watching in Kaikoura, a visit to a Maori Marae, stroll around the dizzy highs of Auckland’s Sky Tower, getting wild in Queenstown - an adrenaline junkie paradise, walking the Fiordland tracks, basking in the sun on the golden beaches of Waiheke Island or Coromandel Peninsula or visiting Te Papa in Wellington - one of the largest national museums in the world, a magical place where art and artefacts meet technological brilliance.
