James Cameron's Ultimate New Zealand

See New Zealand through the eyes of world-renowned filmmaker James Cameron.

Four years ago, James Cameron and his wife Suzy chose New Zealand as their second home. Inspired by the infinite possibilities of nature, they’ve teamed up with Tourism New Zealand to create a series of videos that will engage your curiosity and allow you to explore vast landscapes from a place of pure luxury.

If you happen to like helicopters like I do, you could see 10 of the most stunning places you'll see in your lifetime in a day.

James Cameron’s Top New Zealand Experiences

“There is so much to see and experience in New Zealand and you can do it all because everything is so close together. If I had to choose my favourite experiences they would include:

Exploring Abel Tasman National Park

“It’s not difficult to find great hikes in Abel Tasman National Park. You can kayak in the ocean before you start your hike in the forest. You can do both in one day because everything is fairly close together.”

Scenic Flights in Fiordland

“Take a scenic flight across one of the most dramatic and beautiful regions of the South Island. The views of Fiordland from the air are just breathtaking. There are spectacular mountains and waterfalls absolutely everywhere but especially around places like Milford Sound.”

Discovering the Wine Regions

“Rent a car and drive to wine country.  From Wellington, you can drive over the Rimutaka Ranges, into Featherston and then down into Martinborough, home of some of the best pinot noir. It’s only an hour’s drive from Wellington”.

Experiencing Local Arts & Culture

“Walk the streets of Wellington or Auckland. There's a huge art scene with a lot of energy. New Zealanders have always been inventive, they've always been individualistic and when that’s funnelled into the arts, you get some pretty amazing things.”
