New Zealand Sky offers superb travel for over 50s

The land of the long white cloud, shy Kiwis and home to hobbits, holidays in New Zealand offer dramatic and diverse landscapes across the two main islands. From the glories of a boutique hotel on the Coromandel Peninsula to a 21 day self-drive tour of both islands, taking in Auckland, Wellington and the Maori culture at Rotorua amongst others, New Zealand Sky can offer the very best of this exceptional country. Perhaps you would prefer an escorted tour, focussing on the astounding natural wonders here: Hector’s dolphins, White Flippered Blue penguins and glacial features along with geothermal, volcanic geysers too. Whatever you expect, New Zealand will surprise you time and again.

Holidays in New Zealand for over 50s

For a trip out of this world, indeed on the other side of the world, New Zealand can be reached from the UK via various stopovers, where you might choose to spend a day or two – Los Angeles, Sydney or Bangkok perhaps, although there are many more options. And once you’ve landed, the adventure in New Zealand with New Zealand Sky can begin. Be sure to visit the Bay of Islands, the glow worm caves at Waitomo, Mount Cook National Park and Scotland on the South island. Not forgetting a ride on the TranzAlpine train and all the opportunities for bird watching. New Zealanders have a lively, outdoor attitude to life and really enjoy sharing their country with visitors, perfect for over 50s holidays.
