Winelands
and wildlife

From geothermal pools and national parks to sandy beaches and mountain ranges, traverse the coasts from north to south exploring the vast and varied landscapes that come together to create New Zealand.

Begin your adventure in Auckland – a city considered to be a foodie’s paradise – before flying to Rotorua to discover some of the rarest native wildlife not found anywhere else on Earth. A short drive south, Hawke’s Bay boasts a wealth of rolling vineyards where exceptional bottles from over 80 wineries are savoured and the Art Deco streets of nearby Napier are cycled.

This is all before flying to Nelson, New Zealand’s second oldest city nestled between three national parks. Up the scenic East Coast, Kaikoura waits with whale watching by air or sea, before heading to Christchurch to soak up the historic architecture and art galleries. Finally, finish up near Queenstown – often referred to as the adrenaline capital with activities ranging from bungee jumping and skydiving to white water rafting and hot air ballooning.
