Ever thought about escaping our winter and heading South? The journey to New Zealand has never been easier and once there, magnificent scenery and friendly, welcoming locals are amongst the many rewards.
Days on the islands could be as diverse as heli-hiking on a glacier, taking one of the world’s most spectacular ferry journeys across the Cook Strait or boarding the Tranz Alpine Train to traverse the Southern Alps.
The Otago Peninsula is home to the endangered yellow eyed penguins and a cruise in the Fiordland National Park could be where whales, dolphins and seals are spotted.
Your most memorable experiences could include a cruise around Aucklands harbour on board a yacht that once raced in the America’s Cup or perhaps a light aircraft flight over Mount Cook.
The vineyards throughout New Zealand make perfect locations for a delicious lunch. Allow time for a wine tasting session then purchase a bottle of your favourite to accompany lunch, usually taken alfresco.
No visit to New Zealand would be complete without a few days around Rotorua, a focal point of Maori culture. Forming part of the thermal region, the area also has many viewing platforms from which a variety of geysers, hot springs and boiling mud pools can be admired.
