New Zealand Travel Info, Cheap Flights & International Holiday Packages
Composed of two islands, the North and South, New Zealand is the youngest
country on Earth. You only need to visit the beautiful beaches in the
northern city of Auckland or explore the lush greenery of Fiordland or take in the panoramic views
of the Southern Alps to realise that New Zealand’s natural environment
is one of the purest there is. New Zealand is also home to fascinating
fauna, such as the endangered kiwi, which New Zealanders are affectionately
nicknamed after, or the tuatara, a reptile directly descended from dinosaurs.
There are also many national parks to explore, either through camping
or hiking, which showcase the natural beauty of New Zealand. Experience
Middle Earth yourself and book a Direct Flights travel package
to enjoy the pristine natural environment of New Zealand.
If you are after high-intensity activities, New Zealand has some of the best mountains and beaches; there is skiing and snowboarding in Lake Wanaka in the South Island, or surfing and parasailing in the Northern towns of Raglan and Taupo. Whale watching is also a must as it is almost always guaranteed that a pod of whales can be found in the waters of Kaikoura, on the east coast of the South Island. New Zealand also boasts some spectacular glaciers, and travel packages are available to experience its alpine offerings, including glacier landings and mountain treks.
For a more cultural experience, both the North and South islands of New Zealand offer a blend of European, Asian and Pacific influences. Rotorua has many activities in which you can experience the Maori culture, either through watching one of the daily Maori Cultural Performances (also known as Kapa Haka) or fulfilling your culinary desires at a hangi, a type of underground roast. The Northern cities of Auckland and Wellington offer many shopping havens, or you can try and find some “kiwiana” – quirky objects unique to New Zealand – by visiting the many antique and vintage shops found in these areas.
From its unique culture to its breath-taking landscape, New Zealand has plenty to offer. Flights to New Zealand, cheap accommodation and travel packages are all available from Direct Flights, offering you the best prices for discounted travel in New Zealand.
