New Zealand is a place with much beautiful, impressive and diverse natural scenery, ranging from scenic beaches and pristine lakes, to steep sided fjords, high snow covered mountain ranges, and active volcanoes. The islands are also home to some unique animals and plants. New Zealand’s unique fauna include many birds, such as the national symbol the Kiwi, which have become flightless due to the islands’ long separation from major continental populations of predator animals.
Tours to New Zealand vary widely in length. Particularly long tours include the 26 day Ultimate New Zealand Tour and the 28 day Land of the Long White Cloud Tour. [The Maori name for New Zealand, Aotearoa, actually means Land of The Long White Cloud] More moderate length tours include Wine & Food Extravaganza (11 days), Ultimate Winter Adventure (11 days) and Doubtful Sound & Fjordlands (also 11 days).
Many visitors to New Zealand will arrive by air at Auckland International Airport. Known as the City of Sails, Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city. The Skycity complex in Auckland is a casino and entertainment center in downtown Auckland. Excellent and convenient accommodation in downtown Auckland at the start or end of a New Zealand tour can be found at Skycity Hotel Auckland, on the corner of Federal and Victoria Streets.
