Voyages Jules Verne

New Zealand

Whether you’re a foodie, a culture fiend, a keen amateur photographer, or a nature lover, there’s something for everyone on a New Zealand Tour. There are few places on earth where you can experience so much in so little time, so travelling half way around the world to see all New Zealand has to offer is worth it.

Despite its relative youth, New Zealand has a wealth of cultural opportunities. Many local artists draw on the depth of Maori culture. Modern museums, theatres, music venues and art galleries will satisfy any curious traveller. Auckland has plenty to see and do for architecture buffs and foodies, with a thriving restaurant and café scene.

New Zealand is renowned for its wine regions, so missing out on the delicious local wines would be remiss. From the fruity flavours of Marlborough’s white wines to Hawke’s Bay’s full bodied reds, there’s a wine to satisfy every taste. 

If you’re interested in the quiet beauty of nature, nothing on earth can compare to the Milford Sound. This spectacular landscape is a photographer’s dream, with cliffs rising from dark waters surrounded by craggy mountains. Discover waterfalls, the underwater observatory at Harrison Cove, and the flora and fauna of the area.
