Day Tours and Activities in New Zealand

Explore the stunning landscapes and natural wonders of New Zealand with our day tours

The remote island nation of New Zealand is blessed with some of the most stunning geography the world has to offer. From majestic snow-capped mountains to glittering lakes, dramatic glaciers to otherworldly geothermal regions that hark back to the era of the dinosaurs. It's a playground for anyone with a love of nature, a penchant for adrenaline-fuelled adventure and the desire to use their own two foot and explore. It's also a country with a strong native identity, home to a rich Maori culture that attracts visitors just as much as the landscapes do.

We offer a range of day tours, excursions and fun-filled activities in New Zealand's most popular travel destinations, from the vibrant capital of Wellington on the North Island to the rejuvenated city of Christchurch on the South Island. Then there's the Jurassic-like Rotorua, adventure capital Queenstown and cosmopolitan Auckland.
