Things to Do in New Zealand

Although relatively small in size compared to its larger Aussie neighbor, we can confidently say that New Zealand packs a serious punch. Whether you’re dreaming of sailing beside a pod of dusky dolphins, sipping Sauvignon Blanc straight from the source, or heli-hiking till your heart’s content on practically private glaciers, we’ve got you covered.

Things to do

With such a rugged and varied landscape, New Zealand is a haven for those wishing to embrace the great outdoors. With everything from hiking the Tongariro National Park to horse-riding through the exceptional beautiful of Glenorchy in the South Island, you won’t be left twiddling your thumbs. Out on the water, go in search of sperm whales and humpbacks in Kaikoura, or grab your paddles and kayak off the Abel Tasman National Park where you’re sure to meet with inquisitive seal pups. After all that adventure, sup on sauvignon blanc in Marlborough, or a fruit-forward pinot noir in Otago. If you’re looking for something truly exceptional, speak to one of our specialists who can arrange a bespoke heli-hiking experience where you’ll traverse the secluded spots of the Fiordlands, unseen by most visitors.
