What everyone does
Visit Auckland and experience the colourful vibrant city. Due to its coastal location, it is a great place to sail, so why not head out on a day trip along the coastline. If you are looking for a holiday which covers the main places then our Introduction to New Zealand itinerary is perfect.
What some people do
Put your fears to the test and bungee jump off the Kawarau Bridge in Queenstown. There are plenty of other incredible destinations you can jump in New Zealand. You will be strapped in (by professionals!) and then take the leap of faith off the bridge and feel the awesome rush of adrenaline. A once in a lifetime experience we recommend.
What no one else does
Visit Stewart Island which is just off the South coast of New Zealand. A nice additional trip to make when visiting. Stay in Oban and visit the many beautiful bays and beaches. Like the majority of New Zealand, it is known for its beautiful scenery.
