Flights from New Zealand

Split into distinct North and South regions separated by the ocean, New Zealand is a country that is not part of any continent, with a small population of only 4 million. Nevertheless, New Zealand is big in other ways. A haven for natural beauty, there are breath-taking mountain ranges and a wide array of wildlife to captivate visitors.

From the touring perspective, the North and South islands have different merits. The North is far more populous than its Southern counterpart, and hence more cosmopolitan by way of cities such as Auckland and Wellington. Conversely, the South is rich in spectacular landscapes and abundant in wildlife. Furthermore, if you are keen to immerse yourself in Maori culture and visit warm beaches, visit the North, but to make friends with the birds, dolphins and seals, go south. If you’re leaving New Zealand, make sure you’ve soaked in the sights of the following cities:

Auckland

Known for its food and shopping, Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city. For a dining experience off the beaten track, head to Waiheke Island, and for the widest range of Polynesian products, check out Otara Market. Then, be mesmerized as you stand on Sky Tower, where you can gaze as far as 80 kilometres into the distance or even bunjee jump off New Zealand’s highest point.

Christchurch

For the perfect introduction to the South Island of New Zealand, visit Christchurch, the city for adventurous activities and embracing wildlife. At Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, you can come face to face with what is commonly known as New Zealand’s big 5 in wildlife, including the adorable kiwi. Additionally, one can take a train ride like no other on the TranzALpine to see the brilliant Canterbury plains, Waimakariri River, Southern Alps and more.

Queenstown

If Christchurch wasn’t enough for you, get your adrenaline pumped up further at Queenstown. Here, find an array of winter activities lined up for you at one of the city’s four major ski fields. Queenstown also has a delectable range of bars and restaurants for a time of gastronomical highs. A relatively small country, New Zealand only has six international airports, strategically serving every region of the country.

As you’re getting out of New Zealand, look at the following as possible stops:

New Caledonia

Like New Zealand, New Caledonia prides itself on having diverse flora and fauna, serving as main tourist attractions. For nature lovers, no two nature spots are the same and the city assures breathtaking views that are uniquely New Caledonia.

Fiji

Just a 3 hour flight from New Zealand, Fiji is one of Oceania’s smaller countries, but it is made up of more than 333 islands. Visit places like Vanua Levu and Taveuni to experience a goldmine of spotless beaches and greenery.

England

To take a pause from your nature trail and see more of the city, fly to England to take in the Big Ben, Trafalgar Square and the Palace of Westminster.
