new zealand for families

For families happy to fly the distance, New Zealand is the perfect destination for a family holiday. Given the size of the country, all of the attractions are easily accessible and there are incredible experiences for the family to have at every turn. From Hobbiton to geysers, volcanos to sounds, glaciers to colonial cities the only difficulty you will have is deciding what to see! Campervan holidays are an amazing choice to give you flexibility and spontaneity.

Below are just some of the highlights of this extraordinary country:

Kaikoura: get close to nature here on a whale watching tour and try to spot Sperm Whales coming up for air, or for older children you could go sea kayaking to spot dolphins.

Otago Peninsula: children will delight in the incredible array of wildlife found here. Take a cruise to spot seals, dolphins and even the majestic albatross. At Penguin Place children will love getting up close to these unusual creatures.

Glaciers: Fox and Franz Josef glaciers are on the west coast of the South Island and they are both extraordinary. Activities here range from walking to the glacier wall to view the awesome ice-river, to taking a guided heli-hike further up the glacier or ice-climbing. Which options work for you will depend on the age of your children, but whatever their age they will be impressed by the scale of these wonders.

Rotorua: children will delight at the steaming ground and the smell of sulphur in this otherworldly environment. This interesting town is also a fabulous place to engage with Maori culture, for example visit villages and experience a Maori Haka ceremony.

Hiking: there are endless options for treks of various lengths on both islands. From short walks to waterfalls or viewpoints, to day treks to volcanoes, to multi-day hikes on the ‘Great Walks’ where you will carry your belongings and sleep in huts.

Adventure: New Zealand houses the amazing Queenstown, which for adventurous families could be the highlight of your holiday. Ziplining, jetboating, cruises, even the canyon swing or bungee jumping, could add to the adventure of your holiday.
