Introducing New Zealand

As one of the world’s least crowded and most spectacularly scenic countries, New Zealand makes the perfect backdrop for a honeymoon or romantic getaway holiday.

Not only is it beautiful to look at, New Zealand is also a destination of variety: couples can choose between total peace and relaxation in isolated areas, or they can enjoy all the excitement of extreme adventure.

What to do and see in New Zealand

New Zealand’s stunning landscape of primeval forests, snow-capped alpine mountains, sweeping beaches and remote hiking trails offers couples an exciting romantic adventure or a fun-filled getaway holiday.

From adrenalin-charged bungy jumping, white water rafting and heli-skiing to relaxing strolls along remote windswept beaches and hikes over stunning alpine passes, ‘The Land of the Long White Cloud’ offers something for everyone.

Savour unique ‘Kiwi’ food, sip fine wines and choose from an ever-expanding range of accommodation. New Zealand provides a heady mix of excitement, romantic solitude and stunning natural beauty combined with a pleasant year-round climate.


Honeymoon couples can easily discover some of the most spectacular scenery New Zealand has to offer through the window of your hotel or resort. New Zealand has a wide choice of hotels, lodges and resorts to suit every honeymoon budget and taste, some unassuming, others intimate, exclusive and highly unusual.

Try the tranquil and well-located Huka Lodge in Taupo. Sitting on the banks of the Waikato River and surrounded by natural beauty, Huka Lodge is regarded as one of the world’s most famous retreats – popular with celebrities and royalty, alike.
