We know it’s important to spend less time in the car, especially when travelling with younger children. Our itineraries are designed to see more while driving less. Travelling at a relaxed pace and seeing New Zealand through the eyes of a local.

In two to three weeks, you can visit one island while staying at each location for two to five nights. If you would like to see both islands, then a domestic flight is recommended. You will need to make a selection of a few regions per island.
