Places to Visit in New Zealand

New Zealand is made up of two islands, north and south, which are easily linked by plane, helicopter or ferry. With any first time – or repeat – visit to New Zealand, we would recommend exploring both islands as they offer such varied and unique experiences and landscapes.

Places to visit

Our specialists will craft a tailor-made trip for you that takes in the best areas of the country depending on your interests. Start in the northern tip of the island in the Bay of Islands where hidden beaches and sailable waters beckon, before meandering south to the geothermal region of Rotorua where mud pools bubble and coastal redwoods soar in the Whakarewarewa Forest. Fine wines can be enjoyed further down along the easterly coast in the Hawke’s Bay wine region. In the South Island, explore the picturesque Abel Tasman National Park or sail through the meandering Marlborough Sounds, before venturing to Kaikoura in search of whales. Moving inland, climb up through dramatic rugged mountain ranges and across towards magnificent glaciers. Elsewhere, embrace the trendy alpine town of Queenstown and its lively restaurant and bar scene, before cruising through the remarkable Fiordlands or taking time out to relax in the laidback town of Christchurch.
