New Zealand - Touring Holidays

An escorted tour to New Zealand is the perfect way to see everything this spectacular country has to offer. Discover the beautiful sandy beaches, Maori traditions and active volcanic landscapes of the North Island and then head to the South Island, where towering mountains, stunning glaciers and breathtaking fjord lands await.

Amazing Auckland

Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, is awash with glorious beaches, wonderful walking trails and fabulous islands. Search for dolphins, whales and orcas in the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park, hike to the summit of volcanic island Rangitoto, or visit the Auckland Museum to see fascinating displays of Maori artefacts. This stunning harbour-side city has so much to offer.

Wonderful Wellington

At the southern tip of the North Island, Wellington is New Zealand’s capital city. With its buzzing cultural scene, outdoor activities and stunning waterfront, it’s a delight to discover and a trip on the famous cable-car will reward you with sensational views.

Incredible Rotorua

Rotorua is in the heart of the North Island, surrounded by mountains, rivers, forests and lakes. A dramatic wonderland of geothermal activity, the extraordinary Te Puia Thermal Reserve is only a few kilometres from the city centre. Here boiling mud pools and clouds of steam dominate the landscape and the famous Pohutu Geyser sends hot water shooting 30 metres into the air, up to 20 times a day.

New Zealand’s Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers

A truly sensational site, the Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers are vast valleys of glistening ice that flow down through rainforest almost to sea level. Even at lower levels the glacier ice is thought to be an incredible 300 metres thick and on an easy, scenic walk to the foot of the glacier you’ll see ancient river valleys through which the ice has advanced and retreated over hundreds of years.

New Zealand’s Fiordland National Park

Dramatic fjords, tumbling waterfalls, mountainous peaks and sparkling lakes combine to make the scenery of Fiordland amongst the most breathtaking in all of New Zealand. Rudyard Kipling described Milford Sound as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ and a boat cruise is one of the best ways to experience the dark waters and majestic cliffs of this iconic natural landscape.

Queenstown – adventure capital of New Zealand

Cosmopolitan Queenstown nestles on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, the third-largest lake in New Zealand. Over the years Queenstown has earned its reputation as one of the country’s top tourist destinations, with a huge array of adventure activities on offer. How about a bungy jump, a thrilling ride on a jet boat or a whitewater rafting experience, in Queenstown, the list of exhilarating activities just goes on and on.
