New Zealand by Road, Rail & Sea

A comprehensive escorted exploration of New Zealand’s North & South Islands

  • 15 January 2021
  • 5 February 2021
  • Wildlife Tours/ Natural World
  • History and Culture
  • Milford Sound

If you are going to travel halfway around the world, you need a good reason. What better reason could you have than the desire to visit one of the most beautiful places on earth? The scenery, people of New Zealand and their lifestyle has an enormous appeal which is why it is always high on travellers’ wish lists. With vast open spaces filled with stunning rugged landscapes, gorgeous beaches, often spectacular geothermal and volcanic activity, a temperate climate and fascinating animal and plant life, New Zealand is a land of rare natural beauty and breathtaking contrasts.

With so much to offer, New Zealand deserves more than a fleeting visit. Anyone considering a trip should look at a minimum of two weeks, but preferably longer. Our tour of New Zealand by road, rail and sea zigzags its way through the country, taking in the most dramatic scenery and the most attractive towns and cities on a varied mix of travel modes. In addition to reducing the amount of time spent on a coach, it also allows for a somewhat different perspective as you journey through the countryside by train or view the bays from aboard a boat. We have also included a stopover in Singapore to make the outbound journey more comfortable and allowing for a couple of days of relaxation before arrival in New Zealand. We believe our itinerary offers the best of all worlds and has been devised on the basis that most travellers from the UK will only tour New Zealand once, therefore the trip should be as comprehensive and as full of contrasts as possible. Certainly, this itinerary qualifies on all these important demands.
