Beaches, boats, and BBQ's. New Zealand has over 14,000km of coastline, from sheltered sandy beaches to spots a bit more rugged and remote. Needless to say there’s a fair bit to do – swimming, surfing, diving, fishing, sailing and sand-dune boarding to name a few. It’s all here, and it’s all uniquely New Zealand.
Food, wine, nightlife & wildlife. Beautiful within themselves, but it’s what you can do within just 30 minutes of New Zealand cities that makes them so unique. Have a wine, then visit the vine. People watch, then whale watch. Shop from leading kiwi designers, then see native kiwi birds in the wild.
Maori, mud pools & friendly locals. The North Island’s welcoming people, geothermal wonders and legends of the land have been amazing visitors for years. Visit a marae (traditional Maori meeting house), soak in natural hot pools, and get into nearby adventure like white water rafting or go fishing with new friends.
Stunning scenery, friendly wildlife, epic encounters. New Zealand has wildlife and landscapes like no other place on earth, but it’s not just for taking pictures of. Get right in it! Hike national parks, climb glaciers, raft rivers, kayak with dolphins, swim with seals, wave at whales.
Road-trips, music festivals & good vibes. The New Zealand summer is packed with spectacular outdoor music festivals set in some truly breath-taking locations, and they’re a great excuse for a road trip. Jump in a car, pack the tent, your swimsuit and a sense of adventure and get off the beaten track.
Epic adventures, both on & off the snow. New Zealand has some spectacular ski spots, but this winter playground is not just about the white stuff. Bungy jumping, skydives, canyon swings and jet boat rides are just some of the awesome activities waiting when you need a break from the mountain.
