Packed full of ancient Maori culture, world-heritage listed wilderness and adrenaline-pumping thrills, the land of the long white cloud has something for everyone.
North island or south island? There’s no other country that divides thrill-seekers quite like New Zealand. Culture vultures flock to the north island in droves to explore Auckland’s funky café-lined streets, conquer the incredible Tongariro Alpine Crossing and get up close with Maori culture in volcanic Rotorua. But down south you’ll find nature lovers hiking in Abel Tasman National Park, spotting whales in Kaikoura and carving up the slopes with a snowboard. Decisions, decisions. Either way you go, buckle up for a massive adventure.
