New Zealand

New Zealand is un-crowded, unmodified, and unsurpassed in its splendour. On this environmental journey of discovery, we’ll show you the full diversity of the country’s spectacular natural heritage. Travelling by small coach, we will explore the variety of awesome landscapes including extravagant glaciers, picturesque fiords, rugged mountains, subtropical forest, volcanic plateau and miles of coastline with gorgeous sandy beaches. We’ll see many of the world’s rarest, most enchanting wildlife and plant species in pristine settings beyond compare. We’ll experience some of New Zealand’s seismic features, walk among the world’s largest fuchsias, visit a colony of Northern Royal Albatross, take a boat tour to watch Sperm Whales and cruise on the deep, icy blue waterways to search for Bottlenose Dolphins, New Zealand Fur Seals and the rare Fiordland Penguin. Whether an introduction to nature study or a once in a lifetime trip, this tour is a winner.
