When you are ready to relax and enjoy some food and wine, New Zealand does not disappoint. New Zealand has a number of international acclaimed varieties including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Bordeaux. Pair the award-winning wines with the unique food and dining styles offered across the country and discover the style of dining to suit your taste.

While most of the country’s landscape is quiet and serene, Rotorua is one of the world’s most lively fields of geothermal activity with spouting geysers, hot water pools and bubbling mud regularly putting on shows. Rotorua is the place to uncover the unique Maori culture and learn how their values influence present day life, with a number of opportunities to experience their customs first hand.

On the southern end of the North Island sits New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington. Rolling green hills and a sparking harbor border the city which is offers a rich variety of arts, heritage, culture and entertainment. Explore this fascinating city by foot, travel to nearby Martinborough for award-winning wineries or jump aboard the InterIslander ferry for a cruise through the Cook Strait to the South Island.
