New Zealand’s awesome landscapes, lush forests, amazing wildlife, and pleasant climate make it a haven for many outdoor activities, and a great place to unwind. New Zealand society is diverse, sophisticated, and multicultural, and the honesty, friendliness, and openness of Kiwis will impress you. And the great advantage of New Zealand is that all of its diverse physical, cultural, and artistic landscapes are so close to each other!

The North Island of New Zealand has a 'spine' of mountain ranges running through the middle, with gentle rolling farmland on both sides. The central North Islands is dominated by the Volcanic Plateau, an active volcanic and thermal area. The massive Southern Alps form the backbone of the South Island. To the east of the Southern Alps is the rolling farmland of Otago and Southland, and the vast, flat Canterbury Plains.

My best travel advice Don’t panic, as this will ruin your holiday. Always take out travel insurance as this will give you peace of mind if something beyond your control happens..

My best travel tip as I’m not a great sleeper on flights in general but instead of dreading all those hours on a plane, I try to think of the positives; I can have a glass (or 2) of wine, watch a good movie and let myself get tired naturally instead of trying to force myself to sleep.

My favorite destination we sell is Queenstown, New Zealand and nearby Milford Sound. The landscape is stunning – high alpine peaks, pristine glacial lakes, and, best of all, you can see penguins at Milford Sound!.
