Places to visit in New Zealand

Hiking on the great white tongue of the Tasman Glacier. Cruising Milford Sound, keeping watch for dolphins. Spotting whales breaching in Kaikoura… On a tailor-made vacation with Audley, we won’t just show you the popular places to visit in New Zealand. Our specialists, leaning on their experiences of traveling and living in the country, will help you decide on the places that speak most to you.

Hear Maori prayers sung by twilight in the sacred kauri forests of Northland. Boat through caverns spangled with glow worms in Te Anau. Go behind the scenes at a kiwi sanctuary in Rotorua, and, if you’re lucky, meet the latest batch of hatchlings. Chink glasses of biodynamic wine and linger over cheese platters at family-owned vineyards in Blenheim or Hawke’s Bay. Traverse the snowy shanks of the Southern Alps by train.

Tongariro’s volcanoes and fumaroles. The Coromandel Peninsula’s beaches, where hot water naturally burbles up through the sand. The bosky island nature reserves of Lake Wanaka. Travel at your own pace, in your own style, with the confidence that we’ll show you the best places to visit in New Zealand.
