Dreaming about your next adventure holiday?

Everyone has their our own definition of adventure travel. We think it’s all about discovering new places, meeting new people, experiencing nature and being active outdoors. Walking and hiking, snowboarding, mountain biking, kayaking and scuba diving are just some of the many activities you can enjoy here in New Zealand. Add to that a rich and unique culture and a diverse landscape of beaches, lakes, mountains, glaciers, fiords and volcanoes, all packed into a relatively small country, and you’ve got the makings of the perfect adventure holiday destination.

Still need some convincing on whether or not to visit New Zealand for your next holiday? It is after all a long way for many visitors to travel. Let us inspire you with some of our own experiences as we travel through Aotearoa, the land of the long white cloud.

Need help planning your New Zealand adventure holiday?

We get it. Visiting a new country for the first time can be both exciting and a little daunting. New Zealand is a welcoming country and kiwis are friendly people but they’re also quite protective of their island nation, understandably so given it’s natural beauty.

It pays to be prepared before you arrive with some important biosecurity rules to be aware of when you first step foot off the plane. Then there are our narrow winding roads to contend with, made even tricker if you’re not used to driving on the left hand side. Planning on freedom camping? You definitely need to be aware of the increasing restrictions around this popular form of accommodation.

But don’t worry, there’s nothing that a bit of forward planning can’t prepare you for and we’re here to help. Head on over to our New Zealand travel guide section where we’ll do our best to answer all your questions from our own experience or at the very least, guide you in the right direction as you plan your ideal New Zealand itinerary.
