For many visitors, holidays to New Zealand are the culmination of a lifelong dream, while others are reuniting with family members settled in this beautiful country. Maybe you are booking a business trip to New Zealand and looking for the best things to do for a short stay?

Quick guide to New Zealand’s appeal

New Zealand is where the Lord of the Rings films were shot, due to its incredible natural beauty and wide-open spaces. It’s a great deal more peaceful than Middle Earth though!

It has literally thousands of lakes including the vast Lake Taupo and the unmissable fluorescent glacial lakes dotted along South Island.

Its unique landscape also includes opportunities to see volcanoes, geysers, thermal pools and of course ancient mountains and valleys. There is a ‘wow’ around every corner!

Road trips in New Zealand are smooth and stress-free too.

New Zealand is undoubtedly one of the best global destinations for adventure holidays, with abundant adrenaline rush opportunities up high, on land, and on water. Queenstown New Zealand is even referred to as the Adventure Capital of the World… the Bungy jumps alone are worth visiting for!

If culture, architecture, and good food are more your holiday perks, then New Zealand’s cities are truly outstanding. Auckland, with its iconic skyline and beautiful islands, doesn’t disappoint, while the quaint and quirky Christchurch and the capital of Wellington offer visitors a great atmosphere, sporting events, and more.
