New Zealand

New Zealand, our closest neighbour is one of our most popular short haul international holiday destinations. It’s luscious landscape is an adventurer’s paradise – from hiking, cycling and skiing in the cooler months.

Highlights include sailing the Queen Charlotte Sound towards Picton. But all are surpassed by Milford Sound and its fellow fjords on the South Island’s east coast, some of the most dramatic landscapes, which is best done by a day cruise.

Waterfalls, wild cliffs backed by snowy peaks and, more often than not, moody mists make for great photo opportunities.
