New Zealand Active Holidays

With New Zealand’s inspiring landscapes and welcoming people, adventure comes naturally and activities abound. A backdrop of majestic scenery is perfect for just about every kind of outdoor activity you can think of – from hiking to fly-fishing, skydiving to bungy jumping and much more.

Your choice of activities can be incorporated into a tailor made itinerary or you can opt for a complete active holiday, many of which are guided by local experts. Whether cycling, hiking, kayaking or multi-activity touring, these active holidays combine adventure and activity with home comforts at the end of each exciting day.

Don your hiking boots and stride out on some of the world’s most scenic walking tracks – getting into the heart of spectacular landscape with a choice of gentle coastal tracks, alpine passes, volcano summits and lakeside trail. New Zealand is also a cyclist’s dream with quiet roads, a new view around every corner, and trails across the country catering for a range of abilities from beginners and families to the more experienced.

With magnificently designed golf courses, frequently set against stunning views of snow-capped mountains, lakes, forests and seascapes, it’s no wonder that New Zealand is one of the world’s most sought after and least busy golf locations. In the winter months, between June and October, ski in the Southern Alps or Mt Ruapehu enjoying soft powder, scenic slopes and breathtaking views.
