Discover a breathtaking and unspoilt fantasy land.

There is perhaps nowhere in the world more enchanting, nor more naturally beautiful, than New Zealand. From dramatic mountains and forested valleys to majestic ice floes and glacial lakes and from dormant volcanoes to rolling vineyards, this is a brilliant destination for everything including self-drives, cruises and round-the-world holidays. Your camera will never have been so busy, and you may even recognise some of the scenery from The Chronicles of Narnia films and as Middle Earth in The Lord of the Rings.

  • Ideal for a self-drive holiday in a motorhome with the freedom to stop whenever and wherever you please
  • It’s the land of The Lord of the Rings
  • Epic landscapes including two walkable glaciers
  • An incredible range of outdoor activities and adventure sports

Kuoni Insider

New Zealand is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. The spectacular landscape is so dramatic and changes from one place to the next, from gorgeous beaches to alpine lakes, geothermal areas to glaciers.

It is a playground for thrill seekers with an adventure to be had at every corner. I would recommend that visitors take the time to visit both the North and South Islands as they are both so different from one another, offering totally different experiences. The moment that I will never forget is taking a cruise through the breath-taking Milford Sound, the scenery is stunning, this glacier carved Fiordland is a ‘must see’ in the South Island.
