The diversity of the landscape

From sweeping seascapes and soaring mountains to volcanic peaks and rainforest-clad gorges, the scenery in New Zealand is varied and beautiful. Probably one of the best ways to enjoy it is on a bicycle, and our specialists can recommend the best routes and locations to suit your preferences.

The outdoor lifestyle

It’s no wonder the Kiwis enjoy the outdoors, with so much space to play with and such stunning surroundings, it’s impossible not to. New Zealanders even have their own name for walking and trekking — ‘tramping’.

The low population

It’s very easy to get away from it all in New Zealand. With only four million people populating an area similar to the UK, it’s not uncommon to go for a walk and not see another soul. The Abel Tasman National Park is the perfect place to escape into the wilderness.

The abundance of activities

The concept of the ‘adrenaline activity’ originated in New Zealand. But if this isn’t your thing you'll always find something of interest, whether it be a scenic boat journey or a cultural performance. We offer a range of activities that means you're never too far away from a new adventure.

The history

The traditions and tales of generations of Māori are still evident around the country. This culture, woven with that of the European settlers, makes for an interesting and sometimes dramatic backdrop to today's New Zealand.

The actual kiwis, and other wildlife


New Zealand is home to a plethora of unique and wonderful birdlife, as well as mesmerising marine animals. With conservation a high priority, Stewart and Ulva Islands are ideal places to visit if you're interested in the natural world.

The passion of the New Zealanders for their country
