Tailor Made Holidays New Zealand

From skydiving to whale watching and glacier trekking, almost all holidays in New Zealand are centred around adventure. However, as one of the world’s most pristine and unspoiled countries, holidays in New Zealand are also about experiencing some of the world’s most beautiful national parks and awe-inspiring scenery.

From Able Tasman national park which runs the length of some of the most pristine beaches in New Zealand to the skyscraping peaks of the protected parkland around Mt Cook, New Zealand is nothing if not naturally inspiring. The only question is, which are New Zealand’s absolutely must-see natural wonders?

Watched over by Mt Cook, the highest mountain in New Zealand, holidays in the land of the long white cloud simply aren’t complete without experiencing the breathtaking expansiveness of the mountain locally called Aoraki. From nearby skiing on the Tasman Glacier to midnight star gazing, Mt Cook national park is a must for anyone who wants to experience alpine New Zealand at it’s finest.

Tongariro National Park

The oldest national park in New Zealand, Tongariro is a must for anyone interested in Maori culture and breathtaking mountain vistas. Encompassing Mt Ruapehu, one of the most active volcanoes in New Zealand, Tongariro is also the country’s winter sports capital making the area a mecca for snow seekers come June & July.

Abel Tasman National Park

For sun chasers rather than snow chasers, on the other hand, holidays in New Zealand are perhaps best complemented by visits to Able Tasman national park. Locally famous for benefiting from almost year round sunshine, the Able Tasman area covers 22,530 hectares of golden beach studded coastline and is absolutely perfect for nature lovers.

Of course, holidays in New Zealand are about much more than just inspiring national park adventures. To really experience the country, though, it’s definitely worth adding a visit to at least, one or two to your own itinerary.
