Here’s What Your Amazing Holiday Could Look Like...
INCLUDES: Flights, tour & discount
In New Zealand, sheep outnumber people six to one, but fortunately for ewe, this wild country also has a remarkable number of towering mountains, lush rainforests, and breathtaking fiords. The Bay of Plenty of the North Island serves as the backdrop for the countless breathtaking sights you'll encounter on both of New Zealand's magnificent islands. The South Island's towering Southern Alps, which you can access from charming Christchurch via the scenic TranzAlpine train, are the only geysers that can compare to those in Rotorua. You'll have the chance to take in breathtaking views of the Franz Josef Glacier, warm your toes in natural hot springs, and take part in all the excitement that Queenstown, the "Adventure Capital of the World," has to offer throughout your trip to New Zealand.
