For such a short flight, New Zealand vacations have so much to offer. While you can easily spend a quick weekend in this beautiful country, it's inevitable you'll want to stay a little longer. And so you should. New Zealand accommodation is affordable and of a high standard. Kids and family friendly activities can be found almost everywhere, and there's a fascinating traditional culture to discover along the way.
Most travelers begin their New Zealand adventure in Auckland, the country's largest city. This harbor city is a multicultural melting pot. A place where art and creativity thrives and million dollar views accompany world class restaurants. While here, shop the city's concept boutiques, seek out the latest hotspot bar and confront your fear of heights at the Auckland Sky Tower. You can even bungy jump off it if you're feeling brave.
If a sky high jump sounds like your idea of fun then you're going to love Queenstown, New Zealand's adventure capital. Adrenaline junkies can bungy jump off bridges, ski down steep terrain, wiz around fjords on a jet boat and raft down river rapids. If moving at a glacial pace is more your forte, Queenstown's majestic scenery will have you captivated for hours. Cruise the remarkable Milford Sound or take a ride on a Gondola and admire serene views. For a more comprehensive look at the country's rugged and remote countryside, consider a New Zealand tour.
For a true taste of New Zealand lifestyle, a vacation in Wellington is an ideal option. The country's capital offers a wealth of history, a lively culture and breathtaking views of the surrounding hinterland. Though quieter than Auckland and less touristy than Queenstown, Wellington offers cosmopolitan living amongst a uniquely New Zealand setting.
