Explore New Zealand

Discover the enchanting beauty and soul of New Zealand, from awe-inspiring snow-capped mountains and sweeping vistas to friendly locals and iconic Maori culture.

Explore New Zealand’s exquisite North Island, with its endless coasts, pristine forests and thermal wonders. Visit cities that resound with a friendly welcome that’s normally felt in a small town from Auckland’s dazzling harbour to Wellington’s vibrant culture and coffee scene.

Travel into rustic, unspoilt coastal regions of the Coromandel and the Bay of Islands, where dazzling white beaches and historic villages are commonplace. Then unearth cultural treasures as you travel into the Maori heartland of Rotorua. Experience the wonder of a meal cooked underground in a traditional Maori hangi, uncover a part of New Zealand’s war history and even spot a Kiwi Bird in Rainbow Springs.

The South Island’s unparalleled natural attractions are second to none. From the spectacular alpine landscapes rolling past your window from the TranzAlpine train, the icy-blue Franz Josef Glacier inching toward the sea, to the breathtaking beauty of the unofficial eighth natural wonder of the world, Milford Sound. This perennial favourite will delight you, whether you relax on a cruise across its pristine waters, spotting marine life including seals and dolphins, or decide to get up close to the action with an invigorating sea kayaking expedition.

No visit to the South Island is complete without visiting the picturesque Queenstown. Nestled on the banks of Lake Wakatipu, it is easy to spend countless hours relaxing in Queenstown and taking in the breathtaking sight of the spectacular Southern Alps. Get your adrenalin fix while in Queenstown, with bungee jumping, canyon swings, flying foxes and more on offer. Or take a more serene route and wander the tree-lined streets and boutique stores of nearby Arrowtown.

With nearly 4,000 lakes in New Zealand, it really is a country of endless shores. Must-visits include the expansive Lake Taupo, with spectacular waterfalls and beautiful forests nearby, and the South Island’s Lake Tekapo with its iconic Church of the Good Shepherd situated a stone’s throw from the water.
