HONEYMOON IN NEW ZEALAND
Price starting at Price On Request

Overview

As the planet heats up environmentally and politically, it’s good to know that New Zealand exists. This uncrowded, green, peaceful and accepting country is the ultimate escape. Every trip to New Zealand presents a mix of landscapes and cultures, and yet quirkily different. The rolling hills and hedgerows collude with the irreverent, easygoing locals to disarm, distract and delight. Maori culture is potent, the surf is world class, and the craft beer is awesome. New Zealand presents the best of old and new worlds with social and environmental sensibility.
