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.

    1- MR Aakash Mehta left TT, but company still using his name in mails. After some of booking , he bacame out of scene. 2- Amit Rana was coordinating and was a great help except few occasions. He failed to deliver 100% vouchers before start of tour. Itinerary agreed was changed during the tour in Melbourne. Though the difference was refunded. 3- For many activities, pick and drop was not included which caused inconvenience and running around. 4- However overall, it was good. Satay at Queenstown and Cairns was excellent.

    Travel Triangle and hub holidays helped us to plan and customize our tour. We had a really good experience. All the hotels were good. Queens Town properties had a mesmerizing scenic lake and glacier view. We received all the vouchers timely and did not face any issue during our trip. All our hotels were in the central location except for fox glaciar one. We did not have a very good experience with visa however which was done by travel relations. They were not aware of the documents and type of visa and kept bugging us but travel triangle was able to sort it out. Queens town apartments and the view. Glacier helicopter ride Franz joseph Milford cruise and the waterfalls Driving in new Zealand Indian food in new Zealand . It is comparable to indian restaurants.

    Vivek's 10 days trip to New Zealand

    We booked our New Zealand through travel traingle and hub holidays. Our plan was customised as per our requirements . Hotels, flights, meal, activities , self drive car everything was good. We did not face any issue during our trip. The only set back was Franz Joseph hotel which was 30 mins away from the main city. Other then that everything was good. We did not have a good experience with the visa team though. They were not aware of all the documents needed and we're not even aware that new Zealand tourist visa is an e visa for Indians, we being in Bangalore had to send them documents couple of time. Also they were rude no customer obsession. The 1 start that I have deducted is solely for travel relations the visa company. At one point we felt we could have done processing for our visa and it would have been much faster. But the experience we had with travel traingle and hub holidays is 5*. New Zealand and it's beauty.

    Puneet Mehta

    New delhi

    Puneet's 4 days trip to New Zealand

    The Package was well understood and compiled as per my requirements. Quick response from the team. Feedback on my Bookings : 1) Rental Car : I was not informed on the Insurance for the car being provided. Nor was it mentioned on the voucher, hence I had to pay $94 dollars for the Insurance.I later came to know that i was provided with a basic Insurance. But obviously I had already paid for Insurance. Secondly the car was hired for 4 days but i actually used it for only one day i.e. while going from Queenstown to Christchurch. Day 1 hotel was within the city and all Activities were within 500m hence it wasn't used. Day 2 Milford hence not used. Day 3 Queenstown to Christchurch used it. Day 4 Hardly used it, only for City Centre. Hence I could have done with only 2 days instead of 4. This information as a planner you should have known. 3rdly I was offered a Petrol car , petrol is a dollar costlier and the average is also less. This being a road trip the car should be offers accordingly. 2) Hotel The Hotel in Queenstown was very good. The Hotel In Christchurch was a Motel and 7 KMs away from the City Centre. Which I found was not upto the standard as compared to the Queenstown hotel. Overall I found the Trip prepared was not cost sensitive. I could have saved alot in comparison to what I have paid.

    Vineeth's 14 days trip to New Zealand

    My Wife and I had planned to visit New Zealand and wanted a mix of both adventure and a romantic experience. we shortlisted HubHoliday among the various agents. though their pricing was a bit high, the coordination was excellent. Thanks to Mr.Amit for planning it really well in such a short notice. He kept checking on us not just before the trip, but even when we were there. we trusted him blindly on this entire process and he never let us down even once. we had no complains and we thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon. looking forward to making more memories via HubHOLIDAY. ;)
