Although New Zealand is relatively small and compact, there’s a lot to see and do. Take your time enjoying some of our most distinctive experiences on this epic journey spanning the North and South Islands.
Begin your adventure in our largest city, Auckland, featuring a vibrant city centre, before heading north to enjoy New Zealand’s famous relaxed coastal lifestyle. Northland & Bay of Islands is an aquatic playground where you can swim with dolphins, slide down giant sand dunes on the Ninety Mile Beach, see two oceans collide at Cape Reinga and be dwarfed by giant ancient kauri trees – including the largest one in the world!
To the south of Auckland, Waitomo is home to a subterranean wonderland of caves, glowworms and underground sink holes. Explore the hobbit holes on the Hobbiton Movie Set in Matamata before continuing your journey to New Zealand’s geothermal heart – Rotorua and Lake Taupo. Watch shooting geysers, experience the local Maori culture and soak in a naturally heated hot pool in Rotorua. Lake Taupo is equally exciting in its geothermal offering. Thrill seekers would love jet boating to the powerful Huka Falls, doing a bungy or skydiving.
Explore New Zealand’s cultural capital, Wellington, before you take a ferry to the other side – South Island. Get up, close to marine wildlife at Kaikoura and hike in the Abel Tasman National Park, two unforgettable highlights of New Zealand’s coastal lifestyle. Drive on scenic roads and through alpine passes to arrive on the West Coast, the ultimate outdoor playground and a land of untamed natural wilderness. The only way to truly enjoy its beauty is to get amongst it – walk on a glacier, hike in the national parks or relax and soak in the beauty of picture-perfect lakes.
Featuring a smorgasbord of outdoor activities as well as plenty of opportunities to enjoy a relaxed friendly vibe, there’s no better place to round-up your epic New Zealand adventure than Queenstown.
