But it doesn’t stop there - world class food and wine, great surfing opportunities, geothermal wonderlands and amazing Maori culture are all packed into a country so compact that you can theoretically drive from one end of the country to the other in 2 days. Though why would you, when there are so many things to stop and see along the way.
From the world’s adventure capital of Queenstown (home to the first bungy jump plus the shotover jet), to the simply awesome Milford Sound, the wines and landscapes of Marlborough and unbelievable scenery that just unfolds from the tip of the North Island right to the end of Southland make this a driving holiday without equal. Add in cosmopolitan Auckland, the quirky and beautiful Wellington and the wonderful spirit and inventiveness of recovering Christchurch…and more importantly, everything in between, and you’ve got an unforgettable holiday destination that always leaves you wanting more.
