Despite its relatively small size – which is pretty similar to that of the UK – New Zealand packs a hell of lot into its borders. The North Island is home to vibrant cities like Auckland and Wellington, as well as sprawling farmlands, spectacular beaches and ancient kauri forests. The surrounding waters, meanwhile, allow for loads of aquatic adventures, while volcanic Rotorua is famed for its geothermal attractions. And if you’re interested in history, you’ll definitely want to include the North Island on your New Zealand tour as the Maori influence is especially evident here.
The South Island rocks a slightly different vibe and is all about the drama. A tapestry of craggy mountains, blue-hued glaciers, alpine fields and hillside vineyards, it’s bagged some of the most spectacular natural landscapes you could ever dream of seeing. There’ll be plenty of opportunities for walking during your New Zealand tour – this is, after all, one of the world’s best hiking destinations – but that’s by no means the only activity available. Biking, boating, skydiving, rafting, heli-hiking, kayaking and bungee jumping are all popular here and, if you’re game, you’ll be able to enjoy at least some of these during your tour. Relaxing activities like wine tasting, whale-watching and visits to the Hobbiton™ Movie Set can also be arranged.
While it’s not possible to tick off absolutely everything during a New Zealand tour, you’ll certainly visit a lot of the hotspots. And because we offer tours of various lengths, we can find you one which takes in even more highlights if time allows. So whether you’re a solo traveller looking to meet like-minded people, or you’re planning to travel with friends or family, our travel specialists can help you choose the tour that’s right for you.
