New Zealand Travel Guide

New Zealand has been rightfully called the paradise of the Pacific. Home to the world famous Maori culture and many species of unique flightless birds, New Zealand is one of the most beautiful destinations in the Pacific. Tourism in New Zealand is highlighted by stunning harbors and inlets, colonial attractions, alpine summits, and local culture. Although New Zealand travel is often overlooked by its bigger and more popular neighbour Australia, the land of the Kiwis is no less.

History of New Zealand 

The history of New Zealand is as old as 700 years. It was during those years when New Zealand was discovered. The Polynesians were the first people to settle here. It was the Polynesians who developed the M?ori culture in relation with this land. The Dutch navigator Abel Tasman was the first European explorer who came here on 13 December 1642. Captain James Cook reached here in the year 1769 during one of his three voyages. Post the 18th century, the country has been visited by many explorers, sailors, traders and adventurers. Throughout the eighteenth century, the British resided her extensively. Post the wars in New Zealand, most of the area of New Zealand was handed to P?keh? (European) which gradually grew better. It will always be a delight to visit this wonderful country.

Famous Food in New Zealand

Start with the traditional Maori Hangi which is meat and veggies slow cooked in an underground oven and another Maori favourite Kumara which is a variety of sweet potato. Seafood is obviously very popular, especially the Kiwi favourite Crayfish, paua – sea snails and Kina – a sea urchin.

Major Festivals in New Zealand

One of the main cultural festivals of New Zealand is the Pasifika festival, which is a celebration of the native Polynesian culture of the country. 11 villages come together to celebrate this. Auckland Lantern Festival and Chinese New Year are quite big as well. Other than that, there are multiple food and wine festivals, music fests and religious celebrations. The holiday season around Christmas here is quite a charming one.   

Romantic destinations in New Zealand

A New Zealand vacation can quite easily be a great romantic getaway. While the cities of New Zealand are definitely perfect for sightseeing and night-time excitement, there are many hidden gems of natural bounty in New Zealand, which any couple should seek out for on a trip. Only one small ferry ride away from Auckland is the mesmerizing Waiheke Island with pristine beaches and sprawling vineyards. Another great seaside destination is the Coromandel Peninsula. Do consider the hot spring geysers of Rotorua, hiking trails, and cruising trips of Marlborough and serene beauty of Milford Sound when you visit New Zealand.

Beach destinations of New Zealand

Being an island country, New Zealand is home to many gorgeous beaches all around the country, in both the islands. Cathedral Cove, Ninety Mile Beach, and Mission Bay Beach are certainly some of the best. Medlands Beach and Awaroa Inlet in the Abel-Tasman Coastal Track are not to be missed either. One can discover New Zealand in a completely different light in these tranquil beaches.

Here are some of the other best New Zealand cities to visit.

1. Wellington

The capital of New Zealand is also one of the best cities of the country, with a lovely urban fabric, waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, and lots of wind whistling around all day long. Located near the North Island’s southernmost point, Cook Strait, Wellington is quite laid back a town, despite being the capital city.

2. Auckland

Auckland is hands down the most dazzling city of New Zealand. It has the highest population, most number of urban attractions, and travelling here is quite expensive as well. Despite that, Auckland draws an extensive crowd every year to its sprawling streets. From the iconic Sky Tower right down to the Mission Bay Beach seaside promenade, Auckland is quite a treat to explore.

3. Christchurch

Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand. This city upholds the English heritage of New Zealand history explicitly, thanks to the many vintage stone building that dots the city streets. The city is centred on the Avon River where there are many narrow, flat-bottomed punts gliding through for a tour.

4. Queenstown

Queenstown alone ticks all the boxes for a New Zealand tour. On one hand, it displays an authentic Kiwi culture in every part of the city, while on the other hand there are more than enough outdoor activities to indulge in, ranging from easy to extreme. There is also the dramatic beauty of Lake Wakatipu, set against the Southern Alps.

5. Hamilton

Hamilton is not the most popular name on any New Zealand tour itinerary, but it is an essential one if you want to know as much as you can about the vibrant indigenous Maori culture and other cultural events of the history. Located in the Waikato region of North Island, Hamilton’s map is dotted with museums, galleries and theme parks, as well as restaurants, bars and cafes.  

Adventure Activities

Heli-skiing in New Zealand - heli-skiing is the art of skiing downhill and off-trail by a helicopter instead of a ski lift. In earlier times, remote terrains of Alaska and Europe were reached by helicopter. In a few years, it was converted into a commercialized activity. Adventure-lovers can reach the top of a terrain in New Zealand by a helicopter and then start skiing. 

Jump off the Sky Tower - to try the electrifying bungee jumping in New Zealand, reach at the top of Nevis or Kawarau and jump off the highest point. If you wish to try an off-beat bungy experience, head to Taupo Bungy on the Waikato River. Feel your heartbeat racing as you jump from the top of a tower or cliff. Safety instructions must be followed carefully. 

Ride the rapids - New Zealand offers a host of options to try river rafting at - from the highest rafted waterfall in the world(commercially) in Rotorua to a gentle river in Queenstown. Depending upon your experience and preference, you may choose any of the popular rafting spots in the country. Feel your heart pumping as you row against the high tides splashing over.

New Zealand tour can be real fun if you do not miss our any of these activities or places to visit. It is a charmingly beautiful country that entices every visitor. Plan a smart itinerary to cover most of the best things in New Zealand. Whether you are travelling with friends or family, you can always have a good time in New Zealand. Be it shopping or adventure or sightseeing, New Zealand will provide you all.

How to Go to New Zealand

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

There are multiple flights from the Indian cities mentioned above to the three international airports of New Zealand. Most people prefer to fly to Auckland, as it is the fastest and most convenient to reach. Among the many airlines that connect the two countries, some are Emirates, Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airways, Cathay Pacific, Thai Airways, Malaysia Airlines, Air Asia, Jet Airways and Air New Zealand airlines.

There is no India to New Zealand direct flight at the moment. The fastest India to New Zealand flight travel time is operated between Mumbai and Auckland. The connecting flight from Mumbai Airport to Auckland via Singapore, by Singapore Airlines and Air New Zealand takes 16 hours and 15 minutes to reach.

The second best option is flight from Delhi to Auckland by Thai Airlines, which takes 16 hours 35 minutes via Bangkok. Mumbai to Auckland takes the same time by Singapore Airlines as well. Malaysia Airlines have flights from these two cities and more, with a flight time of 17-18 hours. Wellington has flights as well. Air India-Singapore Airlines flight via Melbourne and Air India-Qantas flight via Sydney, both from Delhi, are the best flights to reach Wellington.

    • Trip to Delhi

      I had booked this tour package from Traveltriangle one month before.Our travel planner from Deejohn Mr Manoj was very responsive to my questions and requests for itinerary changes too.I'm satisfied with Deejohn’s service. Deluxe hotel at Jaipur exceeded our expectations but we were disappointed with Delhi and Agra Hotels, could have been better. Agra tour Guide was demanding excess tips but guides in Delhi and Jaipur were polite and well mannered. We had a great driver Mr Paul for all 4 days were friendly and courteous.Paul cared for us the whole trip.Overall very happy with this tour and will recommend to my friends and relatives.

    • Trip to New Zealand

      The support from Kusum and her team was great. Right from the hotel / flight vouchers, intra city travel to visa assistance and forex, everything was smooth. They were always available throughout and were giving us daily updates on our itinerary. The only thing I felt could have been slightly better is the itinerary. While it was a short trip of 7 days to Zurich, Salzburg and Prague; few things in the itinerary were jam packed and were not feasible to do. Otherwise no complaints, was very happy with Centaur vacations. One word of caution to fellow travellers to Europe, it was hot and sultry in europe and the hotels don't have ACs there so please book accordingly.

      Very good service by VRM & TRIANGLE TRAVEL. When we didn't receive code of swings of Fire, we contacted VRM agent. He quickly helped us & we could get tickets. Some improvement in some dinner restaurant is required. Pre-tour communication was also excellent. Similar experience about our Maldives trip. Thank Triangle Travel & VRM. Cloud Forest is ultimate & Must see. Jewel at Changi airport is also new concept.

    • Trip to Italy

      This was the first time I booked a trip through travel triangle (Travel mastezs) to Italy. Since this was a new travel company for me, I was a bit skeptical initially. Must say, Arpita and Amit Chandra from travel masterz made the entire process effortless for me. Starting with explaining what is best option for us in terms of best locations to cover, minimum duration required, hotel recommendations, sight seeing places, visa assistance (in terms of helping me put together all the necessary documents), keeping me up-to-date until the end of my travel. Checking constantly on whats app if everyone was going well. Arpita also helped with pre-poning a day tour as I wanted to accommodate another personal tour on the initial planned date which was not part of the itinerary which i could not have been able to visit, if not for Arpita changing the schedule in the last moment as per my request. Overall great experience in Italy. Many thanks to Arpita and team from travel triangle who are extremely professional and are well aware of the places without making false promises and being honest upfront in terms of what to expect.

    • Trip to Delhi

      Bering a travel guide, it would have been better, if it was told in advance that their will be mad rush in Haridwar on account of the kagadimela, apart from road blockages. The advance information would have helped us to avoid unnecessary extra travel, wastage of time and money apart from long sitting torture for the entire families which has traveled almost 24 continuous hours to reach our natives. If their was advance information, we would have chosen separate tour through your portal only

      I planned my trip 4 day trip to Kerala with the help of Mr. Avinash. He is a great guy with the right understanding of the traveler's mindset which I think is great quality. He is very patient in explaining every small detail and he is always available to customers. I took this package only because of the confidence that I got I after spoke to him. I strongly recommend him if you are planning a trip to a new place. I have had small room allotment issue in Munnar - Ayur green spa resort ( Awesome place to spend a couple of days) but Mr. Avinash solved it in no time. Thanks again Mr. Avinash and Guruji Travels.

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling. Overall - we liked the trip and it was indeed a memorable ones. Agent has been very kind and humble. The stay options are appropriate and the itinerary were transparent. We felt the drivers are polite but need to be socially moving too as we would be new to the place during our visit. Kindly inform the drivers to explain the itinerary for the day and explain a bit about the place which we are planning to visit - something like that. Silent drivers would not help the travelers. Genuinely, the rest all - very good and Excellent.
