New Zealand Magic

Duration
15 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,999

Fly down under with Fiji Airways and explore the sights, cities, and natural wonders of New Zealand. On your return trip, a Fiji stopover lets you enjoy a few days in the South Pacific sun.


This 14-day New Zealand vacation includes flights with Fiji Airways, taking you to Wellington before roaming the South Island, flying home with a short stopover in Fiji.

Wellington isn’t really the kind of city to show off. With more bars and restaurants per capita than New York City, its residents know they live in one of the world’s coolest capitals. Still, you can get a bird’s eye view from Mount Victoria, take a ride on the famous cable car, and immerse yourself in the country’s natural history at Zealandia, an interactive nature exhibition. It’s the perfect way to whet your appetite before exploring the world’s first fenced urban wildlife sanctuary. Take a day trip to Lake Ferry and Ngawi, a fishing village with spectacular coastline views. Visit the North Island’s largest seal colony, and sample some of New Zealand’s best wine in Martinborough.

Fly to Queenstown, truly one of the most scenic small cities on earth, and enjoy two full days at leisure. This is New Zealand’s adventure capital, so take your days at whatever pace you wish. Enjoy a ride on the Shotover jet boat, take a Lord of the Rings themed 4WD drive, go sailing on Lake Wakatipu, zip-line your way through the forests of the surrounding mountains, or see what Rudyard Kipling called ‘The Eighth Wonder of the World,’ Milford Sound.

A short drive north takes you to Franz Josef, where you’ll spend the night before going on to Greymouth to board the famous TranzAlpine train, bound for Christchurch. Devastated by earthquakes in the early 2010s, the South Island’s largest city has since taken the opportunity to rebuild and reinvent itself into a bona fide foodie and art lover's destination. While it’s still a work in progress, there’s plenty to see and do. A double-decker bus takes you swiftly between the major sites, including Mona Vale Gardens, and the Sumner and Port Hills. But also devote some time to just wandering the downtown core, enjoying the art installations, cafes, bars, and stores that have popped up to revive the city.

Finally board your plane for Nadi, gateway to Fiji. Relax for three nights at the First Landing Resort and Villas, enjoying the beach, and Fiji’s famously warm hospitality before your flight home.
