Tailor made holidays to New Zealand
Self drive New Zealand holidays are perfect to explore the country and see the sights that are important to you.
Whether you need flights only, flights and motorhome hire, a stopover on the way or to stay with family on the way home, Carefree can quote on any aspect of your trip so you get the service that you need to make your holiday a once in a lifetime experience.
Where to go in New Zealand?
The beauty of a tailor made tour is that you can choose where to go, but if you need some inspiration then below are our favourite parts of the country:
City touring - after a long flight it is nice to spend some time acclimatising to the country, so we recommend taking the first day or two to explore the city where you have landed - usually Auckland or Christchurch.
The North and South Islands - it is possible to see both the North and South Islands in a couple of weeks, but we recommend spending a month to really explore them. You can take the ferry across Cook Strait to complete your journey.
Glacier flights - take a helicopter flight over Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers.
Boat cruises - Enjoy a boat trip around the Bay of Islands to see the Hole in the Rock, while no trip to New Zealand would be complete without a fjord cruise on Milford Sound.
Break up the trip home - if you are travelling to the Southern Hemisphere, break the journey home with a relaxing break on the beaches of the Cook Islands or Fiji.
