Two islands, endless opportunity
New Zealand might look small on a world map, but it’s jam-packed with places to see. Active volcanoes, island sanctuaries and history top the list when visiting the North Island. From the far north where New Zealand’s political history began, journey through landscapes that blend magnificent white-sand beaches, sprawling farmlands and geothermal wonders.
Maori culture is rich and ever-present in many parts of the North Island, especially in Rotorua. South of Auckland, don’t miss the Hobbiton Movie Set, the Hobbit-sized village created for the films. Nearby, you’ll be wowed the underground labyrinth of Waitomo caves. Looking for an aquatic playground of 144 islands to kayak, sail and swim with dolphins? Head up north to the beautiful Bay of Islands. Beachgoers also flock to the stunning Coromandel Peninsula east of Auckland.
Imagine a cosmopolitan city where everyone lives within 30 minutes of beautiful beaches, hiking trails, vineyards, wildlife cruises, rainforest, and over 50 islands that dot the surrounding turquoise waters. Add a sunny climate, a background rhythm of Polynesian culture and a passion for outstanding food, wine and shopping – you’re beginning to get the picture of Auckland.
Must Do – Take the ferry to Waiheke Island
A magical blend of sunny vineyards, olive groves, native forest, beaches, art studios and funky cafés, Waiheke is only a 35 minute scenic ferry ride from Auckland and a great place to spend the afternoon wine tasting.
The South Island is famous for its dramatic landscapes, wildlife, glaciers, alpine lakes and fiords. A palette of dramatic scenes, the South Island hosts the purest natural landscapes you’ll ever experience. Showcasing the best of nature’s assets where towering alps meet peaceful sounds and rugged coastlines merge with sweeping plains. Let’s not forget the backbone of the island – the most down-to-earth locals you’ll ever meet. From Queenstown, don’t miss a scenic boat ride or flight through Milford Sound (pictured above), a guided glacier hike on Franz Josef Glacier and whale watching in Kaikoura.
An alpine town hinged at the foot of both a mountain range aptly named the Remarkables and crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is jeweled with epic adventure and relaxation, from ski slope to spa.
Must do – Get your adventure on
Enjoy jet boat rides, skiing, river rafting, hiking and biking, or go bungy jumping where it all began. Top off your days with wine tasting in surrounding vineyards, spa treatments, a round of golf and alfresco dining.
