New Zealand holidays allow you to appreciate nature at its most spectacular. This is the country that boasts magnificent scenery, awe-inspiring natural wonders and breathtaking mountains.
On the North Island, consider starting your New Zealand experience in the largest city, Auckland. Often referred to as the City of Sails, the city has a vibrant waterfront, popular restaurants and cafes, and picturesque harbour scenery. Your visit can be spent sailing the harbour, or exploring the downtown area which is home to the tallest building in the southern hemisphere – the Sky Tower.
New Zealand’s capital, Wellington is set amongst steep hills and a magnificent harbour. Experience a mix of history and culture, as the city is known as the entertainment, commercial and political capital of the country. When travelling to the city, don’t forget to take of the iconic Parliament Building, which is affectionately known as the Beehive.
Known as the world’s adventure sports capital, Queenstown is a popular destination for adventure lovers. Experience virtually every adrenalin activity you can imagine including bungy jumping, snowboarding and white water rafting. If adventure is not your thing, holidays in Queenstown can also be spent visiting vineyards, wine tasting and shopping.
While on the South Island, be sure to take a cruise over the famous Milford Sound in the Fiordland National Park, hike through the beautiful Arthur’s Pass and investigate Christchurch. On other hand, arrange a tour to experience this extremely beautiful country.
There is perhaps nowhere in the world more enchanting, nor more naturally beautiful, than New Zealand. Here is a diverse fantasy land of dramatic mountains and forested valleys, majestic ice floes and glacial lakes, dormant volcanoes and rolling vineyards.
New Zealand has a temperate climate with moderately high rainfall and many hours of sunshine. While the far north has subtropical weather during summer, and inland alpine areas of the South Island can be as cold as -10°C (14°F) in winter, most of the country lies close to the coast, which means mild temperatures.
