New Zealand, roughly the same size as Great Britain, passes through a range of latitudes from the floral North Island to the sub-arctic southern tip of the South Island, and New Zealand holidays allow you to experience the country’s spectacular natural wonders and charming cities.
Auckland is the largest city and a holiday in New Zealand would not be complete without a visit. Here you’ll find a subtropical climate, thermal springs and geysers, rich farmland, national parks and lush forests aplenty.
Rotorua is the ideal spot from which to explore the hot springs and geysers. Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve and village is a good base, and. relaxing in one of the thermal pools in and around Rotorua is a unique experience.
Wellington is widely referred to as the art and culture capital of New Zealand, with many museums, galleries, a world-class orchestra and more. A picturesque city and the capital of New Zealand, it enjoys an enviable location on the tip of the North Island – a great place to spend some time on New Zealand tours.
The South Island is very different from the North Island. A land of mountains, glaciers and spectacular fjords, its population is small at only 1 million.
Christchurch is a pretty town in an idyllic position alongside the Pacific Ocean, bordered by hills and the Canterbury Plains. A green city with an abundance of parks and gardens, it is also well located for those who wish to pursue outdoor sports and activities.
Queenstown is a sophisticated town nestling on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. With its many lakes and stunning alpine scenery, this is a great area to explore. Wine trails are within easy reach of the town and a visit to a vineyard or two will certainly enhance your stay.
Board the TranzAlpine train into the Southern Alps in search of the magnificent scenery – in particular the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers - and you will be amazed by the wonderful surroundings. New Zealand holidays simply would not be complete without taking in this beautiful sight.
