New Zealand is a special country. It is far away from most other places. Well, all to be honest. It is a narrow country, surrounded by water which naturally affects the climate. Winters are mild and summers are warm but rarely too hot. The west coast is rainy. The vineyards, on the other hand, are protected on the east coast where it is drier and warmer. The scenery is fascinating. And we will show you a lot of it during the 16 days of the tour.
Auckland is the big city on the North Island. Here we begin our journey which does not end until we arrive in the lively town of Queenstown on the South Island. Before we reach it we visit the capital Wellington and the wine regions of Marlborough, Wairarapa with Martinborough, Hawke’s Bay, Waiheke Island and Central Otago. We have learnt about the Maori culture, looked at glaciers and hot water-gushing geysers. We have tasted a large variety of wines during our approximately 20 different producer visits.
