New Zealand Tours
New Zealand is an adventure sports junkie's dream. The Tolkien-worthy landscape seems tailor made for adrenaline, and the country that invented bungee jumping takes their adventure seriously. A magical landscape of wild snow-capped mountains, shining lakes and roaring rivers serves as a giant playground filled with world class 'tramping,' skiing and rafting. When you're done, marvel at the thermal wonders of Rotorua, or set out in search of whales and dolphins. While there may be more sheep than people, the friendly English-speaking kiwis will make you wish there were more of them.
New Zealand’s North Island thoroughly engages the body and the spirit, often at the same time. This 10-day trip promises loads of both. Up here, you’ll learn Maori culture (and try your hand at bone-carving) straight from the source while bunking in villages in the bush and pick up some sustainable living tips on a conservation farm. Elsewhere, you’ll sea kayak in a secluded harbour, get a surfing lesson from an expert and overnight on a houseboat. There’s much more, but we’ve gotta leave some surprises, right?
Highlights: Snorkel in the beautiful Bay of Islands, surf world famous waves, learn about the Maori culture in a village homestay, conquer New Zealand's top-rated 1-day trek, dance the night away in Wellington.
Admittedly, we haven’t checked the numbers too closely, but we’re confident that New Zealand ranks among the world’s leading producers of excitement. This quick trip across the North Island jams as many thrills as permissible by law into seven electrifying, activity-packed days. Sea kayak, learn to surf New Zealand's world-famous waves, experience Maori culture directly from the Maori themselves and more, all in a breezy week that always feels full and never feels hurried.
Highlights: Surf world-famous waves, experience a historic Maori village with a local guide, conquer New Zealand's top-rated 1-day trek, dance the night away in Wellington.
