New Zealand is more than just your holiday destination, it’s our home. Our specialists have either lived, worked or travelled extensively across both the North and South Islands, so we’re well placed to create the perfect tailor-made package holidays to New Zealand.

There’s nothing we don’t know about the best places to visit in New Zealand, no matter what you’re looking for in your trip, whether it’s exploration of the country’s iconic and dramatic landscapes, sampling the delights of the hundreds of vineyards or the adrenalin that comes from jumping off a high bridge on a bungee cord.

There’s so much to see and do in this beautiful country, let us take care of the planning for you. Give us a list of what you want out of your New Zealand holiday, and we’ll conjure up a tailor-made package holiday that encapsulates the majesty of the North and South Islands just for you.

There is nowhere in the world more captivating and more naturally beautiful than New Zealand; its rich and stunningly diverse landscapes will leave you speechless. Jagged mountain ranges, majestic glacial lakes, bubbling mud pools, volcanoes and rolling vineyards sit alongside vibrant cities and rugged coastlines across the North and South Islands.

With such breathtaking scenery, it’s no surprise that the country has been known as the ‘Paradise of the Pacific’ since the 1800’s – and has been the spectacular setting for Lord of the Rings’ Middle Earth, as well as the mysterious wonderland behind the wardrobe in the Chronicles of Narnia.

New Zealand is the fifth largest wholly island nation, and with a population of just four million in an area larger than the UK, it’s sparse population preserves its magnificent natural beauty.

There are a thousand and one reasons to visit New Zealand, let us show you just some of them.

North Island
The smaller of the two main islands but the one where 77% of the country’s population resides, the North Island is a geothermal wonderland, littered with enticing hot springs, mud pools and geysters, alongside domineering volcano cones and rolling hills.

Rotorua
Rotorua sits right on the Pacific Rim of Fire, enjoying one of the word’s most lively fields of geothermal activity. Holidays to New Zealand just wouldn’t be the same without a visit here to sample the delights of traditional Maori culture and indulgent hot mineral pools and spa treatments. Take a boat ride or helicopter tour to see an active marine volcano, or if adrenaline is your thing, see the sights of Rotorua from 15,000 feet in a sky dive, or take part in some zorbing down one of its many rolling hills.

Bay of Islands
Visit the spectacular Bay of Islands, a subtropical haven of some 144 islands dotted around the north tip of the North Island. Famed for its stunning coastal scenery and wildlife, pristine warm waters and sandy beaches, the only way to explore this area is to get out on the water – sail, cruise, kayak or swim alongside friendly dolphins. A place of enormous historical significance, and the site of New Zealand’s first permanent English settlement, the birthplace of European colonisation. The Maori knew the Bay as Pewhairangi and settled here early in their migrations.

Auckland
New Zealand’s largest city, and one surrounded by water with its two magnificent harbours, Auckland is a city of volcanoes, with 48 extinct volcanic cones dotted around its landscape. Over one million of the country’s population call this city their home, and its blend of Polynesian, Asian and Kiwi cultures make it the most multicultural of New Zealand’s cities. Nicknamed the ‘City of Sails’ because of the hundreds of boats that fill its marinas, Auckland has it all, from exclusive restaurants and nightlife, to beautiful pristine beaches and enjoys a warm and humid climate all year round.

Wellington
The country’s capital city sits on the bottom of the North Island, and is the second most populous area in the country, with approximately 400,000 inhabitants. Its bustling inner city areas play host to a range of theatre, dance, art and performance shows, its streets lined with exclusive boutique shops, art galleries, and trendy cafés and restaurants. Wellington’s harbour is also the place to cross the Cook Strait to the South Island on one of the most beautiful ferry trips in the world.

South Island
The larger of the two main islands, but with only 23% of New Zealand’s population living here, the South Island is famed for its outstanding natural beauty, from the towering snow-capped Southern Alps to majestic glacial lakes and forest-fringed beaches.

An untamed paradise island of dramatic landscapes and lush rainforests, the South Island is a natural playground.

Christchurch
The South Island’s largest city, and is hailed the ‘Garden City’ by its inhabitants, in honour of its plentiful lush gardens and vineyards. Nestled in the heart of the Canterbury region, where within two hours of an international airport you can ski, bungy jump, go white water rafting, mountain biking, whale watching and more, Christchurch is a beautifully vibrant city with the Southern Alps to the West and Pacific Ocean to the East. The 2011 earthquake destroyed much of the inner city, but don’t let this stop you visiting Christchurch as part of your New Zealand holidays, it’s still a breathtakingly beautiful place.

Queenstown
Dubbed the adventure capital of the world, Queenstown is one for the adrenaline junkies, offering exciting activities such as bungy jumping, sky diving, canyon swinging, jet boating, river rafting and lots more all year round.

Franz Josef Glacier
Explore the majesty of the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers on foot or by helicopter flight, taking in the breathtaking sights from the air. The low altitude means the climate is temperate, making these glaciers the most convenient to visit in the world.
