A less-travelled country of New Zealand offers a wonderful surprise to the nature lovers. In the southwest Pacific Ocean, the country looks like a shining gem in the blue waters. Snow-capped mountains, green meadows, sandy beaches and scenic images have never failed in attracting attention. The side-by-side existence of cultures from the Maori and Colonial British has lend New Zealand a new touch.
It's easy to arrange luxury tours to New Zealand with it being a paradise in essentiality. Divided into north and south, there are two main islands. The North Island defines more of an adventure tour to New Zealand with surprisingly placed geothermal wonders of the Rotorua. Experience the Maori culture and soak in the clear waters of the Bay of islands. Called the Art Deco town, Napier is close to the wine region of Hawkes Bay. The capital city of Wellington celebrates the existence of the country.
Talking about the South Island, start from the Christchurch where English fashion is the talk of the town, along with swimming in the Avon River with the dolphins at Akaroa. Try Queenstown, the adventure capital of the world where you must try various sports like the bungy jumping, sky diving and canyon swinging. Apart from an adrenaline rush, stoke your senses with a walk in the farmlands, fjords and the national parks. We at A&K also ensure that you get to stay at a standard luxury lodge so that you have a relaxed trip. Either book private islands or settle for luxury resorts. Enjoy the dramatic scenic landscapes while getting blocked by a herd of sheep. With wilderness all across the country, New Zealand also is home to the world's most renowned wine and selective fine dining experience.
