New Zealand's stunning landscapes, vibrant forests, amazing wildlife and great climate make it a fantastic destination for those who love the great outdoors. Often considered the adventure capital of the world, in New Zealand anything goes - from the original bungy jump over the swirling waters of the Kawarau River, swimming with hundreds of wild Dusky Dolphins, or landing on a glacier for a bottle of champagne, to simply relaxing on a beautiful beach without a soul in sight. With such a diverse society, New Zealanders are some of the most welcoming people you can find, and with their emerging world-class cuisine and spectacular wines, this really is one of the most diverse and exciting holiday destinations in the world. Scott Dunn’s highlights for New Zealand:
- Take a helicopter trip with a Michelin trained chef to fish for your lunch, served up in style on a deserted beach.
- Encounter giant sperm whales in Kaikoura, as they dive for giant squid in the depths of the Hikurangi Trench.
- Discover the Bay of Islands in the North, with its semi tropical climate and laid back way of life. Sail a private boat around the 144 islands as you spot dolphins, penguins and gannets.
