Dwarfed by its neighbour Australia (which is in fact more than 2,000km away), New Zealand is a country of two halves, and a great bespoke New Zealand travel itinerary will take you to both.
If you fancy a luxury holiday to New Zealand's North Island, you'll find three quarters of the total population here, as well as the capital, 'Windy' Wellington, and the country’s largest city, Auckland – for most, the point of entry. It has everything you need to relax: great beaches, from the subtropical Bay of Islands to Palliser; mountains, lakes, hot springs and geysers, a wealth of outdoor and cultural Maori activities and a friendly, welcoming cities.
If adventure is your thing, the great outdoors on the South Island is where to head. Put simply, it has jaw-dropping, wild scenery. In Queenstown, the gateway to the Southern Alps on Lake Wakatipu, it’s enough to while away the hours marvelling at the majestic view, if you can resist the pull of the outdoors and all its activities, from hiking for the more timid to jet-boating, white-water rafting, skydiving and bungee jumping for the adventurous.
Further north on the South Island, you’ll find some of the best white wine vineyards in the world, where you can taste Sauvignon Blanc until the cows come home. You'll also find Mount Cook (New Zealand’s highest peak), a clutch of glaciers, more wine, castles, the incredible turquoise waters of Hokitika Gorge, and the stunning Marlborough Sounds.
