From bubbling geysers, cycle tracks, tranquil beaches and dune sandboarding in the North Island to glaciers, jet boating, whale watching and hiking in the South – this country delivers fun-filled activities for the whole family in a safe and easily accessible environment.
Get a taste of the quintessential rural life of New Zealand at Rotorua’s Agrodome where families can jump on a 4WD to explore a real working farm and hand-feed friendly baby animals. Explore a labyrinth of caves and underground rivers littered with thousands of magical glowworms that create a star-like canopy at Waitomo Caves. Go on a family adventure into middle-earth at the original Hobbiton movie set from Lord of the Rings, swim with friendly fur seals and hike through untouched forests to private beaches.

Amazing experience and great to deal with.
We had a one week holiday in New Zealand in October 2019 and Jacada Travel planned the trip to meet our needs. The team at Jacada provided us with a wonderful set of options that we could choose from and then, once we made our choices, made it all happen and within our budget. When weather conditions required us to…
Jacada Travel was excellent not only in their ability to personalize our New Zealand itinerary, but also in the service provided by their team as well as accommodation and tour guide selections.

Our travel advisor, Jane Dumble was great. The information packages the concierge team…
In my view, simply the best. We have done 3 trips of one month or greater with Jacada and are in the planning stage for a 4th. I trust them for their execution, creative ideas and advice.

When to go
New Zealand is a year-round destination. In summer visit the beaches, rivers, National Parks and marine wildlife. In spring and autumn the countryside is bursting with colours and the weather is mild but with more rainfall. In winter experience clear, crisp days as well as rainfall especially in the North Island. In the deep south admire the snow-capped alpine ranges.
