What you will find in New Zealand

  • Big and beautiful scenery almost everywhere you turn - "jaw-dropping" and "mind-boggling" are well used terms but in all fairness they are quite appropriate.  See some of the views...

     

  • Superb food whether you are eating in a little café in the back of beyond, one of the country's finest city centre restaurants or at your accommodation...

     

  • Fine wine, craft beer and an almost obsessive passion for good coffee.

     

  • Animals and plants that you will see nowhere else on Earth and an opportunity to make a real difference by helping to conserve them. Visit Tiritiri Matangi, Kapiti Island and Ulva Island.

     

  • Genuinely friendly people who will take the time to talk to you.

     

  • A very British sense of humour.

     

  • Just about no traffic on the roads outside of the bigger towns and cities and not an M6 or M25 in sight - a five hour drive in New Zealand is an absolute pleasure with a different view around every corner.

     

  • For many of us, a rare opportunity to enjoy a real sense of space, peace and solitude – New Zealand is roughly the same size as the UK but has only 7% of the population and even then nearly a third of them live in Auckland.

     

  • To feel part of the place even though you are as far from home as you can get.

     

  • And once you have come home, you are certain to feel the pull to go back one day.
