Auckland City
Auckland city, 2 harbors, 20 extinct volcanoes and is New Zealand's largest city with a population of approximately 1.4 million. Auckland is often called "City of Sails".
Fascinating unique Maori culture
Maori make up 16% of New Zealand's total population and live mainly in the top half of the North Island because of the warmer climate.
Stunning natural wonders of Moeraki boulders
Moeraki boulders just south of Oamaru are truly fascinating. Stroll along a lovely peaceful South Pacific ocean beach and explore these large circular boulders. Great photo opportunities.
Wildlife close up, Kaikoura
New Zealand has many large Seal colonies around it's 15,000 km/12,000 mile long coastline. Playful and fun to watch but do not get too close, they bite!
Adventure activities, Cathedral Cove
Kayaking is very popular and fun in New Zealand particularly around the stunning Coromandel peninsula in the North Island and in the South Island the beautiful Abel Tasman National park.
Lord of the Rings and Hobbiton, Middle Earth
Experience Sir Peter Jackson's magic first hand, visit the original film set for our world-famous Hobbiton epic. The farm setting near Matamata in the central North Island is truly special, a "must see" attraction.
Spectacular Franz Josef glacier
Franz Josef glacier always spectacular in all its majestic glory. It is rare anywhere in the world where major glaciers are so close to any ocean and so accessible. An exciting option is a full day glacier hike, then a relaxing soak in hot pools.
