New Zealand Vacation Packages and Specials

>

New Zealand consists of two main islands, the North Island (tropical) and the South Island (more temperate, with a climate similar to Oregon or Washington).

The Maoris are the native New Zealanders, and descend from Polynesian settlers. The official languages are English and Maori.

The outdoors is a major draw for tourists, with the incredible Southern Alps, Milford Sound and its fjords, and brilliant lakes, rivers, and national parks.

It's also a great destination for foodies, with incredible restaurants and wineries. Seafood is a mainstay, with green-lipped mussels, crayfish, oysters and fresh fish. The most notable wine variety produced is Sauvignon Blanc, but New Zealand also produces some world-class Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blends.
