Starting in Queenstown and ending in Auckland, explore the wonderful natural environment of both South and North Islands. Your highlights will be many, including the wildlife of Kaikoura and the sheltered waters of the Queen Charlotte Sound, before crossing the Cook Strait to the North Island and the quirky capital city of Wellington. Travel through the central plateau to Rotorua and its bubbling mud pools and unique Maori culture before arriving into Auckland the ‘City of Sails’, and a relaxing day spent on Waiheke Island before departing.
My travel to New Zealand was not a standard one because I had quite some wishes and also wanted to include a horse riding holiday in it. Surfing the internet to find a company that could realise all this I came across First Light Travel. And Judith Pohn! What a relief to find out that there are still people like her to fulfill your wishes! It took some emails back and forth but eventually she composed the perfect trip for me. Thanks to First Light Travel and Judith my 6 weeks in New Zealand run really smoothly and left me with an unforgettable memory of the country! I can highly recommend both her and FLT!
