How long do I need to visit New Zealand?

New Zealanders are generally laid-back and relaxed, and we believe this exact mentality should be adapted to your holiday. Drive a few hours from one accommodation to the next. Easy journey’s through beautiful scenery. No rush. No pressure. To inspire you for your journey DownUnder, we have created a few example routes for solo travellers.

Discover the wide-open spaces and enjoy the laid-back lifestyle of New Zealand. Three to five weeks will give you enough time to see more breathtaking locations at a relaxed pace. Staying at each place for two to four nights allows you to experience New Zealand like a local.

Whether you want to conquer New Zealand’s ‘Great Walks’ or visit quirky towns, we can arrange it. And you don’t have to travel far to see a lot. Within a few hours, you’ll discover a completely different landscape.
