New Zealand Independent Touring

Combine independent exploring with the convenience of pre-arranged accommodation and transportation on one of our touring holidays - ideal for those who like to travel at their own pace but don’t necessarily want a self drive holiday.

New Zealand is an easy and friendly country to travel around independently with an excellent network of roads, bus, rail, ferry and air services. An independent itinerary may include one or two of these modes of transport or a combination of them all for a complete New Zealand travel experience!

Train journeys are both leisurely and scenic and can add a delightful variant to an itinerary. The TranzAlpine is regarded as one of the country’s finest rail journey and operates between Christchurch and Greymouth across the Southern Alps. Rail enthusiasts, or those looking for something just a little bit different, could opt for a memorable stream train journey.

There are plenty of domestic flights throughout the country, ideal if you’re pressed for time or want to focus on specific regions, and the Interislander ferry operates daily between Wellington and Picton connecting North and South Island. Accommodation options range from motels and farmstays to boutique hotels, elegant B&B’s and idyllic lodges which we can mix and match.

With our in depth knowledge of New Zealand we can tailor make any itinerary to suit your requirements. Simply let us have an idea of your interests, timescale and budget and our New Zealand specialists will take care of the rest and they will be on hand every step of the way so you get the very best from your New Zealand holiday.
