New Zealand (or Aotearoa – land of the long white cloud), truly is one of the most picturesque and photogenic places on earth. A small island nation of just over 4.5 million people, New Zealand is located approximately 1,500km east of Australia and about 1,000km from the Pacific Islands. Due to its relative remoteness and being water locked, New Zealand was one of the last countries to be found and settled.
The country is made up of some of the world’s most spectacular landscapes, from vast mountain ranges, steaming volcanoes to sweeping coastlines. It is a natural playground for thrill seekers and adventurers and those who simply want to visit for the culture and landscapes.
Join us this December to explore this stunning country – also know as the paradise of the Pacific. Embarq’s 12 day Self-Drive Road trip starting from Auckland takes you through some of the most scenic routes all the way to the southern most tip of the country and ends in Queenstown.
Drive through mesmerizing landscapes surrounded by snow-capped mountains and pristine lakes. Take a Ski plane tour (optional) to land on one of the most famous glaciers and fly over Mount Cook. Stay overnight in a Cruise – and lose yourself to the stunning Milford sounds. Soak in the Maori culture as you experience their hospitality and warmth, get awed by some of most peculiar nature’s creations like the glow worm caves and thermal parks. Join the locals to bring in 2023 as we gather to witness some spectacular fire work show.
We will make sure this is the one of the most memorable road trips you will ever take. Are you ready to Embarq on a new experience?
