Enjoy New Zealand’s great outdoors

New Zealand, as one of the most recently populated countries on the planet, is an outdoor country.

Amazing scenery from the golden beaches to the snowy mountains and its thermal wonderland – it’s all there.

Although the cities are relatively new, and even if they’re really interesting to visit for a few hours, it would be a shame not to enjoy the big range of camping options, a lot being established by the DOC (Department of Conservation). In New Zealand, you are able to stay overnight beside the most famous lakes (Pukaki, Tekapo, Wanaka), on a beach (legally!), in a national park (Abel Taman, Tongariro, Fiordland) or in the middle of the mountains, waking up with breath-taking views literally every morning.

During the day, the country offers a huge range of outdoor activities: explore many spectacular hiking tracks, some of them among the most world-renowned like the Tongariro crossing. Or bike the NZ Cycle Trail to enjoy fantastic views by biking across country on all levels of tracks and with very low road traffic. There is a whole range of stunning activities that NZ has to offer. You will be able to try anything, from the quiet horse ride or Maori cultural show to the thrill of a skydive, a bungee jump or the unique experience of swimming with wild dolphins.

New Zealand is definitely an outdoor utopia, and one of the best ways to explore it is by optimizing your trip and travelling with a tour operator by bus. Trips offered by Flying Kiwi, the only NZ Company listed in National Geographic as one of the “Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth”, allows you economies of time and money in your trip organisation, and include food, accommodation, ferry crossing and much more.  This added to all the transport being taken care of, giving you the chance to enjoy the best of New Zealand’s outdoors, their specialty. Travel from 3 to 28 days all around New Zealand by bike or by bus, camping at night in stunning scenery and exploring, hiking and outdoor activities beyond the normal tourist trail.
