New Zealand is simply gorgeous. Lush rainforest, coastal walks, island cruises, snowfields, glowworm caves and bubbling mud – there's plenty to enjoy on a short trip from Auckland! Drive to the dunes at Cape Reinga, where Maori spirits depart for ancient Hawaiiki, or explore the black sands of the wild West Coast and giant tree ferns in Waitakere Ranges on a great outdoors eco walking tour. The beautiful coastal walkway at Coromandel is abundant with lush vegetation, wildlife, and amazing views.

Dreaming of an island paradise? A thirty minute flight by light plane over the sparkling waters of the Hauraki Gulf brings you to majestic Great Barrier Island. Walk on boardwalks over unique wetlands, past rare native flora and fauna to the Kaitoke natural thermal springs.

Relax on the tranquil waters of the Bay of Islands, cruising, swimming and snorkeling through 144 islands on an overnight or 3-day tour. Head along the Hibiscus Coast to the town of Paihia and the historic Waitangi Treaty Grounds, explore the port town of Russell and travel along Ninety Mile Beach to northernmost Cape Reinga.

Intrigued by what lies beneath New Zealand? Head south to the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, view stalactites formed over thousands of years, and take a magical boat ride through the naturally illuminated glowworm grotto.

Travel on to the famous thermal baths and mud pools of Rotorua and Te Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve to indulge in a mud bath and thermal soak.

Take in the thrill of Turoa and Whakapapa's stunning ski fields at Mt. Ruapehu an adventurous wonderland for skiers, snowboarders and partygoers.

Finally, drop into the capital of Wellington and visit the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. New Zealand has that rare combination of natural beauty, lovely people, culture, and exciting activities that make for a top vacation destination and happy travelers.
