New Zealand Luxury Holidays
New Zealand is famed for its clean, green environment and remarkable scenic beauty that encompasses everything from snow-capped mountains to sparkling coastal waters and from sandy beaches to rolling green countryside.
It's not all about scenery though; traditional Maori heritage has blended with modern european and Polynesion influences to create a rich and fascinating culture; the fertile land is responsible for some of the world's most sought after wines that are more than matched by the quality of the Pacific Rim cuisine; and there are outdoor activities that offer everything from the serene to the adrenalin-fuelled.
In short, there's a perfect New Zealand itinerary awaiting every discerning traveller.
