New Zealand holidays
With epic mountain ranges, ancient forests, sweeping coastlines and monumental fiords, holidays to New Zealand reveal some of the most spectacular scenery on the planet. Travelling between the North and South Islands, you'll experience differing landscapes, from tropical rainforests to alpine meadows, sprouting geysers to volcanic plateaux, lush vineyards to gorgeous beaches.
New Zealand tours aren't just about looks, though. There's also 800 years of Māori culture to learn about, wildlife to watch out for (whales in Kaikoura, seals in Akaroa, penguins on the Otago Peninsula, kiwi birds in Rotorua) and world-class wines to sample. An extraordinary adventure awaits…
Holidays to New Zealand involve a fair bit of planning and organisation - luckily, we take care of all of that for you. Whether you have three weeks or four, we’ve carefully constructed our New Zealand tour itineraries to allow you to fill your time with the very best experiences that the 'Land of the Long White Cloud' has to offer. Flights, transfers, hotels, excursions - it's all taken care of, so you won't need to worry about a thing.
Your holiday doesn’t have to start and end with your tour, either. We can add stopovers, arrange extra nights, and sort out alternative flights if you’d like to visit friends or family before or after your New Zealand tour. If you’ve got the time, you could even combine two itineraries – perfect if you want in-depth tours of both Australia and New Zealand. Speak to one of our travel advisors and they can help you to plan your dream trip.
Plus with our award-winning VIP door-to-door travel service, you can switch on holiday mode from the get-go. You’ll be whisked off to the airport from your very front door (and they’ll drop you home again) no matter where you live in the UK.
Experience the almost otherworldly geothermal landscape of Rotorua, with its steaming geysers, bubbling mud pools and natural hot springs. Attending a traditional hangi feast here is an unforgettable highlight for many visitors. In Wellington, learn about the country’s fascinating history in Te Papa national museum, stroll through the lovely Botanical Gardens, and raise a glass of local sauvignon blanc at one of the capital’s smart harbour-front restaurants. You can also relive the 1930s in Napier, a city famed for its colourful art deco architecture, and explore Auckland's museums, galleries, parks and gardens.
Marvel at the wonders of the Southern Alps - Mount Cook, New Zealand’s highest peak, and the breathtaking Fox and Franz Josef glaciers. Board a vintage steamship for a scenic cruise on Queenstown's beautiful Lake Wakatipu, surrounded by mountains crags and canyons. On South Island's east coast, spot the Scottish influence in Dunedin. It’s the gateway to the Otago Peninsula, a beautiful wildlife haven where you’ll find colonies of endangered yellow-eyed penguins and albatrosses.
Flight time from London to Auckland is approximately 23 hours 20 mins.
