Welcome to our Destination Aotearoa campaign!

With the Trans-Tasman bubble opening, the appetite for travel to NZ has only increased and so we thought the timing opportune to take you on a tiki tour (albeit virtual for now!), of our fabulous country.

From vast landscapes to fascinating culture, astounding geography and sports opportunities galore - it really is a country of contrasts and opportunities for groups of all ages and subject areas.  Whether you're interested in STEAM, sports or a mix of all, we can create the perfect tour.

We would love to show you around and update you with the latest developments across the regions. We’ve reached out to our regional partners from around the country to help with this and you’ll also have the opportunity to hear from two key destinations - Queenstown and Taupo.

So prepare to be educated and have some fun along the way!

We’ll be drip feeding you bitesize content during the course of the next few months. But if there’s anything in particular you’re keen to learn or know about then reach out to us and we’ll see what we can include.

We can’t wait to bring your groups to explore NZ soon!

We are running the following Virtual Workshops for schools and trade, so sign up to get updated. The timings are aimed for the AU and NZ audience but we'll be recording the sessions and share for all to enjoy.

SOUTH ISLAND HIGHLIGHTS

The stunning South Island is not to be missed. From the coastlines of Abel Tasman National Park; to Mount Cook & Lake Tekapo; NZ’s adrenaline-capital Queenstown; not to mention the awe-inspiring fjords of Milford and Doubtful in the South; the difficulty will be choosing which places to miss out of your itinerary!


Here are a few of our favourite South Island spots:
