Looking for inspiration? Do you need some holiday ideas to help that early booking stage of planning your trip to New Zealand? What is it for you that makes a perfect holiday? Below is a hand picked selection of some of the best New Zealand holiday ideas I would recommend experiencing. If you have never been before or haven’t the time to research your holiday to New Zealand, then email me! It’s one thing to talk to friends and family or read a guide book but nothing beats first hand knowledge and advice.
So, what is it that you really want from your holiday to New Zealand? Would an opportunity to visit a working sheep sheering homestead be of interest? Perhaps a day trip on the famous Earnslaw Scottish steamer might be appealing at Queenstown Bay on Lake Wakatipu, a long thin Z- shaped lake formed by glacial processes, and has spectacular views of the nearby Remarkable and Walter Peak mountain range. The scenery in so many parts of both north and south island is stunning but you have to know the best places to visit before making your booking especially if time is short.
