New Zealand is a land of opportunity. A place for thrill seekers as much as nature lovers, this South Pacific country is a harmony of striking landscapes, culture-rich cities, and endless adventure. When days here are spent kayaking on translucent water and summiting mountain peaks, it’s no surprise that this country ignites our childlike wonder. A luxury vacation unlike any other, New Zealand hotels and tours are not to be missed.
For a full dose of Maori culture, Rotorua is the place to be. It’s a place admired for its natural hot springs, explosive geysers, epic biking trails, and abundant trout fishing, thanks to the 18 lakes that surround the city. Holidays here will include a traditional hangi feast, craft markets, and plenty of outdoor tours. For a bit more adventure, ziplining and mountain biking are just two affairs for the more active.
An icon of the South Island, Milford Sound was created by glaciers during the ice ages, resulting in a dramatic and breathtaking landscape that fuses stark cliffs, dark waters, waterfalls, and wildlife.

We’ll bring you closer to the endangered species, including New Zealand’s national bird – including an exclusive opportunity to release a young kiwi back into the wild.
Of the 4,000 lakes in New Zealand, this is one of our favourites.
