New Zealand

New Zealand is a miracle of geology — a verdant and varied continent compressed into two small islands. Choose a New Zealand honeymoon to see epic landscapes intertwine. Glaciers slide through rainforest. Mountains trap the ocean into fjords and sounds. Vineyard rows lead down to the windswept beach. Jaw-dropping natural beauty, incredible outdoor activities, terrific fine wines no matter your pace, New Zealand is an adventure. Even the beaten path here is not so beaten. There is top-flight wine, world-class golf and enough awe-inspiring outdoor activities to fill weeks, months and years.

The country is perfect for adrenaline junkies, foodies and a wide range of travelers in between. It’s easy to find a place, alone from the crowds to take in or take on the natural wonders. Down Under Endeavours handcrafts luxury vacations designed around your wants, needs, timeframe and budget. To get a taste of what’s possible, check out these sample itineraries. Have a look, see what catches your eye, then chat to the Down Under team to custom-create a New Zealand honeymoon.  Occasionally, we offer traditional “package” vacations focused on a special event. But those are the exception, not the rule. The itinerary of your trip of your lifetime will be unique to you.
