New Zealand Holidays

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door. You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

J R R Tolkein

New Zealand… why not? 

Well to answer the Flight of the Conchords’ question, open The Telegraph. According to Telegraph Travel readers New Zealand is the world’s best country for the fourth consecutive year. They listed 26 reasons why. Here are some of them so you can start planning for some New Zealand holidays.

“The landscapes make you want to applaud”. “Fjordland, …. is one of the most astounding pieces of land anywhere on God’s earth, and one’s first impulse, …  is simply to burst into spontaneous applause. It is magnificent.” While in orbit astronaut Chris Hadfield described Marlborough as one of the most attractive areas on the planet. High praise indeed. Visit the area while travelling New Zealand and you can sup on what many wine critics consider the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc while enjoying fine food and watching the sun set over the vineyards.

Does your New Zealand tour require a bit more activity? The Milford Track – “the finest walk in the world” – is just over 50kms long and traverses much of the South Island’s magnificent fjord country.

Prefer New Zealand adventure tours? In Queenstown you can go bungee-jumping, skydiving, snowboarding, mountain biking and jetboating all in one day.

Think trains are a more comfortable way to see New Zealand? The Taieri Gorge train journey through mountain scenery could well be the world’s most scenic railway. The TranzAlpine Rail Journey from Christchurch to Greymouth has actually been ranked among the top six train journeys in the world.

Want a New Zealand holiday by the sea? No worries. You’re never far from the beach, just go north. Why not hire a campervan?
