DESTINATION NEW ZEALAND
For a very small country, New Zealand can offer more in less miles than any other country on earth. Wherever you travel in New Zealand, you will see spectacular scenery: from the glaciers to the alpine regions, from rolling plains to rugged fiords, long white sandy beaches to compact urban centres. You are guaranteed to be blown away by what New Zealand has to offer.
With a stunning 14,000km coastline, New Zealand punches way above its weight as a superyacht destination.
Sheltered harbours, inlets and bays throughout the country create the perfect cruising conditions for any superyacht coming to New Zealand, with the added bonus of a eclectic array of land-based activities for those wanting to do a little something different. From high country horseback safaris to cycling tours, white water rafting to jetboat cruising, freshwater and ocean fishing, backcountry hunting and world famous walking tracks to fine wine and haute cuisine, ballet and opera, boutique shopping and spa relaxation, there's plenty to satisfy.
With the varied terrain of the North and South Islands, you would think you were in 2 separate countries. In the warm temperate conditions of the North Island, popular drawcards are the beautiful Bay of Islands, the Rotorua thermal area with boiling mud and geysers, and the spectacular peaks of the volcanic plateau. All round the coastline are long stretches of almost empty white sand beaches, and inland the rolling hills and plentiful lakes and rivers offer freshwater fishing. There's big city shopping, restaurants, galleries, ballet and opera, and all forms of entertainment. In the South Island, there's the pristine waters of Golden Bay and the intricate passages of the Marlborough Sounds, the rugged fiords of Westland, and the offshore sanctuaries of Stewart Island. For the adventurous, there's climbing and skiiing in the Southern Alps and stunning walks in the foothills, adventure mecca Queenstown, and everywhere you go, award-winning vineyards offering some of the world’s best new wines, boutique cheeses and handcrafted beverages.
