New Zealand Vacations

New Zealand vacations explore the immense natural beauty of this pair of islands southeast of Australia. Some itineraries focus only on New Zealand, while others also include Australia. Most tours are escorted, and a guide will accompany you for the duration of your visit. These expert tour directors will enhance your experience as they point out remarkable sights and share many tales about the destination.

New Zealand tours journey through scenic landscapes that seem to come out of a storybook. "The Lord of the Rings" movies were filmed in some of these stunning regions. Take in the indigo lakes, swift rivers, rock-strewn mountains and powerful geysers. Some itineraries swing by Mount Cook, the country's highest mountain, surrounded by 12 massive glaciers. Many tours include a cruising portion through Milford Sound, a marvel of blue water and glacier-carved valleys.

Get a glimpse of Maori culture in Rotorua or big-city life in Auckland. We offer many opportunities for adventure travel as well. Queenstown, for example, is known for such exciting activities as bungee jumping, skydiving and mountain climbing. For more relaxing pursuits in Queenstown, there are art galleries, wineries and cafes.
