New Zealand holidays offer travellers the opportunity to explore a nation that’s like two countries in one.
The North Island is carpeted in pastures and is the location of the country’s largest and most urban cities. Highlights of tours to this region include the welcoming cities of Auckland and Wellington, the black sand beaches of the Pacific and expeditions to the volcanic cones and thermal springs that dot the landscape.
By contrast, the South Island is sparsely inhabited, and features large tracts of unspoiled, mountainous wilderness. Many of New Zealand’s most celebrated striking destinations are to be found on the South Island, including the pristine glacier region and its crystal-clear mountain lakes.
