Luxury New Zealand Family Holidays
New Zealand is a magical destination for family travel. From wildlife adventures to natural wonders, long sandy beaches and endless hiking and biking trails – you’ll find plenty to keep broods of all ages and sizes occupied.
Active teens and tweens will find thrilling activities here – from skiing to river jet-boating, mountain biking, glacier exploration, luging or zorbing down grassy hills, or canyon swinging from great heights.
Toddlers and small children won’t get left behind, with many animal sanctuaries and zoos offering a glimpse at the elusive kiwi, or King penguins. New Zealand’s fantastic museums have interactive kids’ sections – don’t miss Te Papa in Wellington where little ones can learn about Māori culture and history – dating back over 1000 years.
Other family-friendly activities include hot air ballooning, whale and dolphin spotting, mini golf and mazes, visiting natural hot pools, horse riding, farm tours and the Waitomo glow-worm caves.
