New Zealand – Famous for its scenery and terrain

New Zealand is famous for its breath-taking scenery and diverse terrain. When borders were closed , many trails were revamped, extended and experiences created or updated to maximise the dynamism of New Zealand’s great outdoors.

On foot – Skyline Guided Walks in Queenstown opened new hikes (4 hours or 6 hours) on Ben Lomond’s iconic granite peak to discover the region’s history, geography, fauna and flora with expert local guides. Set to become the 11th and newest Great Walk, the Tuatapere Hump Ridge track is a challenging 3-day loop along the south coast of New Zealand. Offering stunning views from sub-alpine heights across Fiordland’s rugged coastline, the Southern Ocean and Stewart Island.

By bike – The Lake Dunstan Trail offers cyclists and walkers a challenging 55km ride through unique and fascinating landscapes characteristic of Central Otago in the South Island as it journeys along Lake Dunstan, the Kawarau River and the mighty Clutha River Mata-au. It is coined “the best one-day cycle in New Zealand”.

By boat – Explore the Western Bay side of Lake Taupō in the North Island, previously inaccessible to visitors, on Taxicat Adventures’ new boat tour offering. Expect spectacular, up-close views of tumbling waterfalls, towering cliffs and some of New Zealand’s purest water.

By air – Helicopters Nelson and Awaroa Kayaks have joined forces to create a Heli-Kayak adventure in the South Island, taking visitors through spectacular sea cliffs, sparkling blue water, and golden beaches.
