From gigantic glaciers to boiling hot springs, snow-capped mountain peaks to hidden underground caves and sandy beaches to native forests, there’s no shortage of wondrous things to explore on your trip to New Zealand.
While there are 15587 hotels starting at NZ$229 a night on offer here, you’re likely to get more bang for your buck if you bundle your hotel and flight bookings. With Expedia’s New Zealand holiday packages you can also include experiences and car rental. If you’ve set your sights on checking out some of New Zealand’s spectacular natural wonders like Milford Sound, why not add a guided tour to your hotel and flight package?
Day 1-2: Auckland Airport is located on the North Island and is often the first port of call for travellers. After you’ve settled into your hotel room, head straight to the Sky Tower. This icon is over 328 metres tall and offers dazzling panoramic views of the city.
Day 3-4: For more unique urban adventures, head south to the national capital, Wellington. A little over an hour away by plane, this compact city is the political and cultural hub of the country. Pay a visit to Parliament House to learn all about the region’s history and parliamentary processes.
Day 5-7: You can’t spend time in New Zealand without exploring the beautiful South Island as well. For the ultimate scenic day trip, grab the keys to a rental car and make your way from Wellington to Christchurch. Switch off the engine and enjoy beautiful views from the ferry across Cook Strait, then cruise down the stunning south coast.
Join thousands of party-goers at the Pasifika Festival. Held annually, this weekend-long event is the largest of its kind in the world and celebrates the Pacific region’s cultures through powerful performances and mouthwatering food.
