New Zealand made up of the North and South Island.  Driving the two islands is breathtaking and you need to make sure you stop and explore.  The two islands are quite different in their landscape so exploring both gives you a great overview of the whole country.

New Zealand’s North Island offers vibrant cities with nighlife and trendy cafes along with rustic beaches, wineries and rolling hills that go forever. It is rich in culture and history.

From the far north where New Zealand’s political history began, journey through landscapes that blend magnificent coasts and beaches, sprawling farmlands and geothermal wonders. Māori culture is rich and ever-present in many parts of the North Island.

New Zealand’s South Island hosts the purest natural landscapes you’ll ever experience. From wildlife to wineries, glacial valleys to star-filled skies, snowcapped mountains to pristine lakes,  the South Island offers adventure in all its forms. No matter which destinations you choose to explore on this long, mountainous island, you’ll be constantly open-mouthed before the incredible scenery.
