New Zealand

New Zealand is synonymous with awe-inspiring beauty and dramatic natural scenery. No other country in the world has so much to see and experience within such a compact space. The country comprises two large islands, each offering unique travel experiences. The North Island is full of subtropical forests, thermal geysers, and golden beaches, while the South Island features mountains, fjords, glaciers, and tranquil countryside.

An oasis of nature, New Zealand boasts with a mild and temperate climate that is pleasant all year long. Temperatures range from a warm 85℉ high in the summer to 60℉ in the dead of winter. (Temps are markedly lower in the higher elevations, which nicely accommodate world-class skiing and snowboarding.)

New Zealanders, or Kiwis as they’re affectionately known, share a unique cultural heritage and are renowned for their genuine warmth and friendliness. Opportunities to enjoy home-stays or farm-stays with locals are abundant here and are a unique

way to get to know New Zealand and its people in a genuine and personal way. 

The country’s clean, green environment is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. Summertime has enough warm sunshine for everything from bush treks and whale watching to cycle touring, bungee jumping, and spending an entire day at the beach. 

Nature activities get some competition from New Zealand’s sophisticated and energetic cosmopolitan cities.

Queenstown, renowned for its adventure sports—bungee jumping, cycling, kayaking, skiing, and more—offers an equally exciting café culture, with more than 150 diverse places to relax with a glass of wine and a great meal, many with a bay window view of the area’s breathtaking scenery. And Christchurch and Auckland each have a unique sense of culture and history. Beyond these cities lie charming small towns offering wonderful itinerary options, including vineyard tours and tastings, dining in lovely restaurant gems, strolling through alpine gardens, and guided tours through nature.
