Read what one of our travellers has to say about New Zealand!

In September/October this year I travelled to New Zealand with my husband and (almost) adult children, aged 17 & 20, conscious that it may be our last family holiday together. My son is a massive Lord of the Rings Fan, and my daughter has neither read the books nor seen the movies, so the challenge was to meet their different desires for the holiday – as well as the challenge of 4 of us I a car for 11 days. We had never taken a touring holiday before...Plus we were paying, so it wasn’t going to be all about them!

We flew into Auckland, and stayed in mostly 2 bedroom apartments so we had plenty of space. We of course went to Hobbiton the day after we arrived – I had booked the tour before we left. It is near Mata Mata, a reasonable drive from Auckland. Although it was pouring with rain the day we visited (New Zealand is very green for a reason!) we had a wonderful tour, finishing up with a refreshing cider by the fire in the Inn (and a ginger beer for those of us under-aged!) We continued on the Lord of the Rings theme with a tour of Peter Jackson’s Weta studios in suburban Wellington, and a Nomad Safari’s four wheel drive Lord of the Rings tour out of Queenstown, towards Glenorchy. The daughter enjoyed them all thoroughly, despite having no prior expectations!

But there is so much else to see and do in NZ! From the cities of Auckland and Wellington, with their wonderful restaurants (try The Foodstore, harbourside in Auckland – all local produce) to the Maori culture of Rotorua, with Hangi dinners and shows, and the amazing Waiotapu Thermal Wonderland. The South Island’s beauty is amazing – every corner you turn is picture-postcard perfect. We trekked on Fox Glacier – if funds permitted I would recommend a heli-hike that deposits you further up the Glacier inaccessible by foot. A visit to Queenstown would not be complete without a ride on the Skyline Gondola and a jet-boat ride up the Shotover River. As for bungy jumping – maybe next time!

And to finish our stay – a drive up to the ski fields of Coronet Peak and the Remarkables – and a Ferg burger and chips, Queenstown’s legendary takeaway.

I am pleased to say it was a wonderful time together and perfect for a grown up family! I would thoroughly recommend it and I know we have made wonderful memories together!
