Bay of Islands

Imagine yourself swimming with dolphins! Yes, that is possible when you are in paradise. With a sub-tropical climate, you can have the time of your life. Hire a boat and go fishing or explore the aura of the 144 different islands. New Zealand gives you wonderful reasons to visit it.



If you are an adrenaline junkie, then you should visit Queenstown. Packed with thrilling activities from bungee jumping to jetboating with breathtaking views, the place has it all. You can even have wine in one of the most mesmerising vineyards. Queensland is rightly known as New Zealand's resort town.



From bars and restaurants to international events and shopping, a trip to Auckland will spoil you for good. Visit Silo Park or the Auckland Art Gallery, this place will surely give you the variety you are looking for. Auckland’s Waiheke Island is a heaven for beach lovers and even has vineyard tours to keep you in action.

Love hiking? We have a place for you! Fiordland is surrounded by over 100,000 glaciers. Hike your way to the breathtaking scenery of the Sutherland Falls--the tallest waterfall in New Zealand.



Did you love The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit? Then do visit Hamilton-Waikato. It has the Hobbiton movie set--the permanent set created for these two movies. You can even take a ride on the hot air balloon for a one-of-a kind adventure and enjoy panoramic views of beautiful Waikato.
