Your New Zealand Vacation Itinerary

  • Day 1-2: Auckland Airport is located on the North Island and is often the first port of call for travelers. After you’ve settled into your hotel room, head straight to the Sky Tower. This icon is over 1000 feet tall and offers dazzling panoramic views of the city.

  • Day 3-4: For more unique urban adventures, head south to the national capital, Wellington. A little over an hour away by plane, this compact city is the political and cultural hub of the country. Pay a visit to Parliament House to learn all about the region’s history and parliamentary processes.

  • Day 5-7: You can’t spend time in New Zealand without exploring the beautiful South Island as well. For the ultimate scenic day trip, grab the keys to a rental car and make your way from Wellington to Christchurch. Switch off the engine and enjoy beautiful views from the ferry across Cook Strait, then cruise down the stunning south coast.

Immerse yourself in culture on a Auckland vacation

Auckland is one of the most culturally rich destinations in all of New Zealand. You'll find a multicultural hub of various people working together, offering diverse cuisine and art you can enjoy. Musical performances are quite common here in public spaces like parks and markets rather than just restricted to concert venues, though there are plenty of staged live performances as well.

Taste the wonder of Wellington vacation packages

Wellington is a popular city in New Zealand best known for its culinary prowess. Restaurants here are world-class, offering next-level flavor and presentation you won't want to miss out on. However, it's not all extravagant fine dining, as you'll also find more modest tucked-away eateries and bars. The coffee is also quite notable, so you can always start your day with something tasty here.
