Why we love New Zealand

The latest insight from our time spent exploring New Zealand.

Adventure right across New Zealand

New Zealand's an adventurer's paradise. From jet boating in the Bay Of Islands, White water rafting some grade 5 rivers, to more leisurely cruising in the bays of the Abel Tasman National Park region and taking scenic heli rides over Milford Sounds. Activities are available to suit all ages and abilities.

Safety and Self Drive

We have navigated New Zealand by horseback, helicopter, by foot, bus, boat and car. We always recommend Self- Driving New Zealand. Not only is it incredibly safe, it also gives you the flexibility to stop and explore well-signed walking tracks, enjoy lunches in scenic spots and capture some of New Zealand's jaw-dropping scenery.

Scenery and National Parks

From active volcanoes, mountains, Fiordland's, waterfalls, lakes, caves, cascading glaciers and forests, New Zealand has it all. New Zealand's 13 national parks showcase more than 30,000 square kilometres of diverse, natural scenery. To prove just how natural and unique New Zealand is, an astonishing 71% of birds are endemic to New Zealand.  

Exquisite new world food and immaculate wineries

New Zealand's Lodges house world class chef's whose focus is on local produce, from kiwi and apple Orchards to lamb and venison complemented with world class wine yards.

Bay of Islands

Bay of Islands

The Bay of Islands is a sub-tropical micro region known for its astonishing beauty and history. It encompasses 144 islands between Cape Brett and the Purerua Penisula and is home to some charming coastal towns from Russell to Paihia. You will discover golden sands fringed by native trees, clear blue waters and sheltered coves. The area’s well known for its beaches, yachting, big game fishing, marine life spotting, cycling and heritage walking trails. Just North of Paihia you can visit the treaty house at Waitangi Treaty Ground’s which marks the beginnings of New Zealand as a nation. You can stop in Russell for an excellent fish and chips and swim in Kororareka Bay whilst at Eagles Nest. Experience the pink sands of Matauri Bay at Kauri Cliffs or head to Oke Bay, where pods of dolphins are frequent visitors. For the even more adventurous, there’s skydiving, water skiing and scuba diving. Golf can also be arranged at Waitangi or the internationally acclaimed Kauri Cliffs. The Bay of Islands is just three hours north by car from Auckland or 35 minutes by plane from Auckland to Keri Keri.
