Lush green parks, towering mountains and gorgeous seas—you’ve probably seen New Zealand before, even if you’ve never been there. This is, after all, the same island where the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy was filmed! Fortunately, you won’t need to worry about any orcs or sinister jewellery while you’re here—instead, you’ll find friendly inhabitants, beautiful cities and a landscape that will stick with you long after you’ve left.
Stay in the middle of stunning scenery and friendly vibes with your pick of New Zealand hotels throughout the country. Put your feet up among the bright lights of Wellington and find your bliss near the Remarkables mountain range in Queenstown.
You have two gorgeous islands to explore, so get moving. Queenstown is a major South Island draw for adrenaline junkies ready to skydive or take on some extreme hiking. If you’re happiest surrounded by turquoise waters and emerald-green flora, grab a kayak and paddle peacefully at Abel Tasman National Park near the northwest corner of South Island. On North Island, enjoy some sweet seaside spelunking at the Waitomo Caves. In Auckland, don’t miss looking out over the city lights from the observation deck of Sky Tower, then come down to earth for amazing eats and nightlife that won’t quit. When you’re spent after fun-filled days, dream of tomorrow’s adventures in New Zealand accommodation near your must-see sights.
To get to New Zealand, fly into one of the larger airports for the best access to public transportation. Commuter rail lines run from Auckland and Wellington to nearby suburbs, and local buses service most towns throughout the country. To cruise between islands, catch a ferry in Cook Strait to Wellington or back.
