Discover one of the most beautiful countries in the world with flights to New Zealand. Rolling hills, rugged mountain ranges, and white sand beaches make it easy to see why New Zealand has been known by travellers since the 1800s as ‘Paradise in the Pacific’.
Where to spend your New Zealand Holiday
When you’re choosing your New Zealand flights you need to decide what you want to see and do, and how much time you have available to explore. New Zealand is a large country, split into two main islands and a few smaller islands that can be accessed on a trip by boat.
The North Island is green and lush, with a mild climate and active volcanoes with bubbling mud pools. It’s also home to Auckland, the capital city. The scenery on the South Island is a little more dramatic, with fjords and glaciers inland and gorgeous beaches along the coast. The largest city on the South Island is Christchurch.
With such diverse scenery, it’s no wonder New Zealand was the perfect backdrop for Lord of the Rings’ Middle Earth.
What to do on a New Zealand Holiday
The cities of the North Island are worth spending a couple of days in, particularly Wellington with its boutique shops and cable cars. Spend a night in a bar watching rugby with locals for a real New Zealand welcome; just make sure you cheer for the right team! Once you leave the cities there are lots of areas of natural beauty, from Hot Water Beach, where you can dig your own spa in the sand, to Mount Taranaki, a dormant volcano that closely resembles Mount Fuji.
The South Island’s dramatic scenery lends itself well to adventure tourism. Unleash your wild side and get involved in white water rafting, rock climbing, or bungee jumping. If you prefer to live life a little more on the decadent side, the South Island is home to New Zealand’s finest wineries on the Marlborough estates. If you decide to take a wine tasting tour, remember to leave the car at home.
So whether its the scenery, the action, or the friendly locals that you’re visiting New Zealand for, rest assured you’ll find the best flight right here.
