Nestled within and isthmus of two oceans, the Pacific Ocean and Tasman Sea, Auckland contains much serene natural beauty.  Auckland has so much to see and do - there’s plenty of entertainment for a few hours, a few days or a few weeks - museums, galleries, zoos and parks.  Swim with sharks or stingrays at Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Encounter or see a collection of intriguing artifacts showcasing New Zealand’s history and culture at the Auckland Museum. Climb the Bridge, take a chartered cruise around the harbor or jump off the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere.

Fly south to Rotorua where you will have a myriad of activities to entice and entertain.  Whether seeking to experience Maori culture, geothermal earth forces, spa rejuvenation, thrills and adventure, or any of the other natural assets such as 16 lakes, some of the world’s best mountain biking trails, fantastic trout fishing and myriad forest walking tracks – Rotorua delivers it all!

Continue south by air to Wellington, the capital of New Zealand!  Visit the dynamic National Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa which is located on the waterfront! Ridge the historic Cable Car to visit the Botanic Garden or hear the birdsong of a tuatara as you walk through Zealandia, the Karori Sanctuary Experience.

Fly from Wellington to Queenstown is in the center of an area of extraordinary natural beauty and is an essential part of every NZ itinerary.  Paradoxically, although the area exudes a peaceful tranquility and gentle beauty, it also offers a wide range of fun filled and action type activities.  Take an exhilarating jetboat ride, bungy jump from a choice of locations or go white water rafting. Explore Milford or Doubtful Sounds, visit the historic township of Arrowtown or relax on an afternoon wine tasting journey.  Whatever your passion - Queenstown has it all!

Enhance your New Zealand vacation with a Maori experience in your New Zealand itinerary. Maori culture is an integral part of Kiwi life and adds a unique, dynamic experience for visitors.

In Auckland, absorb the area’s history and admire the magnificent traditional Maori carvings that stand guard. Experience Auckland’s unique cultural heritage with the Auckland Maori Tour and hear stories of Maori people, learn about the language and see some of Auckland’s very best sights.

Rotorua boasts a strong Maori presence. Te Puia is home to New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute and the world famous Pohutu geyser. Enjoy a culinary experience like no other as you select traditional and indigenous food to steam above this geothermal wonderland.  Meet the Mitai Family and experience a culture that has come to live in harmony amidst this unique environment of geothermal wonders during a Maori Cultural Experience. Learn the haka, try the poi, play stick games, warrior training, weaving and learn about tattooing and carving at Tamaki Maori Village Hangi and Concert and see the traditional hangi meal being lifted from the ground before entering the ancestral meeting house for a powerful cultural performance.

Wellington offers extraordinary natural features and contrasts. Hear about Maori legends of the sea monsters that once inhabited the harbor’s mysterious depths or the legendary warrior who landed his canoe on the Wellington Shore during the Wild Wellington Tour. Visit the Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa Tongarewa, an innovative and interactive experience that offers a unique natural environment, Maori culture, art heritage and history.
