INTRODUCTION TO NEW ZEALAND

New Zealand, a continent which spoils you with landscapes, outdoor adventures and instagram opportunities. This place is as action-packed or easy going as you choose for it to be. Looking for a destination where your days are full to brim with adventures and adrenaline filled experiences? Travel to New Zealand South Island where Queenstown lays and you’ll be doing just that - with bungee jumping off Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge, jet-boating on the Shotover or even a spot of skiing in the winter months as a given. Or maybe you’re all about laying back and exploring the neverending national parks and getting a lifetime's worth of fresh air whilst wandering through the likes of Milford Sounds or the South Island Fiordland and Southern Lakes were some pretty incredible footage from Lord of the Rings was filmed. With some of the best hiking spots on the planet, the great outdoors is all yours. Perhaps you’re all about exploring New Zealand's many bustling cities? If so Auckland and Wellington are for you - Where waterfalls, rainforests, volcanoes and harbours meet slick architectural cities full of vibrants bars, cafes and eats,

Trips to New Zealand will also have you digging deep into history and culture. Whether it’s learning about the heavily rooted Māori culture or learning the legendary Māori ‘Haka’ dance. Or it could be immersing into Christchurch, a city heavily influenced by the English heritage and exploring its art, churches and botanical gardens. And if that's not for you, culture can be found in just about every bite you eat.. think Kiwi burgers and the very best fresh crayfish.

The dramatic landscapes, enchanting beauty, culture and jam packed filled experiences of this vast country will have you falling head over heels. From South to North, tours of New Zealand are an absolute must!
