Tours in New Zealand If you are looking for a holiday that offers something more than lying on a rather nondescript beach then these fantastic tours to New Zealand will be of interest.Travel tours in New Zealand make up a wonderful package of unforgettable experiences wrapped in the memory of spectacular and beautiful scenery.

People  often have a mental image of New Zealand as an extension of Australia with similar climate and landscapes, but nothing could be further from the truth. New Zealand is over 1,300 miles from Australia and is much further south.

While much of Australia is virtually desert, New Zealand is a green and fertile land with a very temperate climate, which means it does not have extremes of temperature with boiling hot summers and ice-cold winters.

The landscape was carved by volcanic activity, giving rise to spectacular mountains, valleys and lakes. The moderate climate makes it ideal for adventure holidays all year round.

There are countless types of activity holidays to enjoy in New Zealand because there is a great outdoor tradition. Activities like hiking or cycling through fabulous mountain scenery or along the breathtaking Pacific coast are a perfect way to experience the true character of this extraordinary land and it’s wildlife. There are animals that are unique to these islands and seeing them in their natural environment is a very special thing to do. New Zealand is a perfect country for camping too.

This kind of adventure may sound a little daunting and organizing such a trip isn’t easy! That’s why going to New Zealand with an adventure travel company like Intrepid Travel or G Adventures is so popular.
