The travel authority describes New Zealand as “a wildly exciting place, where the best adventures are experienced under your own steam.” If you’d rather let us do the legwork, we can arrange bespoke itineraries of this laidback yet thrill-a-minute island nation.
A highlight for 2018 is the brand new Paparoa Track on South Island. It’s the latest addition to the Great Walks, a network of hiking and mountain biking trails that take you deep into the country’s stunning outback. The new route is a rollercoaster of limestone cliffs and river valleys, rainforests and alpine peaks.
The good life New Zealand-style isn’t just about wide-open spaces. Epicurean pleasures include an eclectic Pacific Rim food scene, bicycle tours of art deco wineries, and the world’s most vibrant coffee culture. Who knew the dwarves and hobbits of Middle-Earth had it so good?
