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.

How much time do you have?

Select information that matches you

If you have the luxury of five or more weeks, you can see New Zealand in great detail. A relatively small country, you won’t need to spend hours and hours in the car. Visiting each place for at least two to four nights, allows you to get to know the locals and listen to their passionate stories about New Zealand.

Stay away from the crowds and integrate into the relaxed Kiwi lifestyle. Study the dramatic landscapes and visit places only the locals know about.
