Oh look, there’s a car. Drive around New Zealand’s North and South Islands and - whether you’re visiting strange geothermal landscapes or glaciers, fjords or mountains - you’ll be inspired by many things. Including the lack of traffic.
When a New Zealander says ‘great outdoors’ the emphasis is on the word ‘great’. And one of the best ways to experience it – according to Jeremy Webster, one of our New Zealand specialists – is by walking. Jeremy will create a tailor-made holiday for you that includes strolling along the Milford or Routeburn Tracks in Fjordland. When you stand at the edge of a spectacular fjord, hoping your camera can do the scene justice, you’ll understand why.
Jaremy's tailored itinerary could also take you to the site of the turbulent forces that created this mini-Eden. In the geothermal region of Rotorua you’ll witness the power of nature as geysers explode skywards, boiling mud and hot springs. And ground hot enough to cook you a traditional Maori hangi feast. Brilliant with a glass of classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc!
Then there’s the whale-watching or dolphin-swimming at Kaikoura, walking or kayaking through the Abel Tasman National Park – more photo opportunities than your camera has memory! – or taking a helicopter to the top of a West Coast glacier.
And, as Jeremy says, Doubtful Sound is another definite! Talk to him about visiting New Zealand.
