Keeping travelling to a minimum makes this itinerary beautifully simple and ideal for those wanting a taste of all New Zealand has to offer within two weeks. Perfect for those preferring not to drive at all on their holiday, all transfers are by internal flights enabling you to unpack and stay longer at each destination, and relax more. However, you won’t be missing out as most places of interest can be included as optional day trips from the main cities. All airport transfers are included.

✈ UK – Auckland (4 Nights): First you will fly from your chosen UK Airport to Auckland where you’ll have 4 nights and you can take time to explore New Zealand’s largest city with its shops, museums and harbours. An easy 3 ½ hr trip from there could take you to the beautiful Bay of Islands, an idyllic beach destination with plenty of activities including fishing, sailing and swimming with dolphins. Visiting Coromandel is another great excursion with its golden beaches, rainforest and marine wildlife. You can also explore the magical Waitomo Caves or take a Hobbiton Movie Set tour to experience ‘Middle Earth’ on the set of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
✈ Auckland – Wellington (4 Nights): Fly onto Wellington, the country’s capital, for 4 nights where you can enjoy the scenic harbour setting, thriving arts scene and gourmet cuisine. The capital is also an ideal location to take a day long wine tour to the picturesque vineyards of Martinborough with its award winning wineries.
✈ Wellington – Queenstown (3 Nights):Then fly onto Queenstown on the South Island for 3 nights. This alpine city is the adventure capital of NZ with nearly every imaginable extreme sports available. A must–do whilst you are here is a day trip to Milford Sound for a cruise through the stunning fiords that are home to dolphins and fur seals.
✈ Queenstown – Christchurch (3 Nights): Your final internal flight will take you to Christchurch for 3 nights where the wonderfully laid back city with its beautiful parks and gardens will be your base. From here take a 3 hr trip to Kaikoura which is a nature watcher’s paradise. With snow-capped mountains in the background, this is the place to come to see sperm whales up close along with penguins and dolphins!
✈ Christchurch – UK: On your last day you will be picked up and taken to the airport for your flight home to the UK.
