Lost Treasures and Wild Worlds
Nature went to New Zealand and broke all the rules. Imagine the lost treasures of the Moa and wine-tasting at the top of the world. Pristine beaches, naturalists, and the wisdom of Māori guides. Stealing through a cave lit by torches and the ghosts of gold rush towns. Top it off with Auckland, a dazzling city of 49 dormant volcanoes and 190 ethnicities. Now you have really been somewhere extraordinary.
The Spirit of New Zealand
New Zealand is the home of secluded bays, rare birds, mist-cloaked fjords, gold beaches, and unique towns and cities. The Māori culture, rich with arts and tradition, is an integral part of New Zealand’s identity. The residents, who call themselves Kiwi’s, are laid-back and welcoming. With 8,700 miles of coastline, New Zealand has some of the best seafood in the world—mussels, crayfish, and king salmon are particular favorites.
Discover hidden-gem wineries, and then savor the Māori hāngī, a traditional earth-oven cooking style. In Rotorua, be amazed by meals cooked in geothermal pools. Heaven… Sail in a catamaran on the Tasman Sea past inlets, a pristine shoreline, and forested hills that ring with the spirits of ancient tribespeople. Walk the sand with delightful kiwi birds while an albatross soars overhead. Notice how bright the stars are in the Southern Hemisphere, and take the wonder of your New Zealand vacation home.
