People are talking about New Zealand touring, and for all the right reasons.

The Stratosfare Restaurant at the Skyline complex on Bob's Peak Queenstown

As one of the most peaceful nation's on earth, New Zealand is a true holiday paradise.

And it doesn't matter whether you want an addrennalin-charged adventure or a stress free relaxing break away, New Zealand can accommodate you.

You won't believe the variety of experiences available here

New Zealand has two very different islands, The North Island and the South Island.

Each offer their own wonderful landscapes, experiences, and adventures.

Some South Island gems

Imagine sitting in the dining room at the Hermitage Hotel, Mount Cook Village. You gaze through the huge picture windows at the towering, snow capped Southern Alps.

As you sip on your locally produced sauvignon blanc, you take the first taste of your meal,  and wonder how it can possibly get any better than this.

But the next day, you take the Glacier Explorer's tour, and head out onto the terminal lake of the huge Tasman Glacier.

Your guide takes you across the lake towards the face of the glacier. Icebergs float in front of you, and your guide lets you touch and taste ice crystals that are hundreds of years old. Amazing!

But you know that in a few days, you are heading to Milford Sound. Are the stories true? Is it really as good as everyone says? The trip to Milford is an experience in itself, as you pass raging rivers, towering peaks, and then the Homer Tunnel. As you reach Milford Sound it unfolds before you. You board your cruise ship and soon find yourself craning your neck as you watch the cliffs disappear into the clouds. Nearby a huge waterfall plunges into the dark waters of Milford Sound. The just stare in awe. Or if you really want a special experience, take an overnight cruise on the Milford Mariner. Imagine waking up to that amazing landscape. Yes, it is that good.

Go kayaking in the pristine Abel Tasman National Park

Picture sitting on your balcony in Queenstown, looking across Lake Wakatipu towards The Remarkables mountain range as they stand sentinel over the lake. Immerse yourself in the vibrancy of the town, and the huge variety of pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants. Bungy jump off the historic Kawarau Bridge and find out why they call Queenstown the "Adventure Capital". Take the gondola to Bob's Peak, 450 meters above town, for views to die for. Or cruise the lake on the historic TSS Earnslaw, and see the town from a different perspective.

Visit the pristine Abel Tasman National Park and the Tasman region. Walk the famous Abel Tasman Coastal Track or kayak Tasman Bay, and take in the sights, sounds and wildlife of this gorgeous region.

These are just a small sample of what the stunning South Island has to offer.

But let's not forget about the North Island.

So different to the south Island, the North Island is no less charming.

Tamaki Maori Village Rotorua

Have you ever seen a geyser erupt? You can in Rotorua. Have you longed to try the traditional Maori Hangi, a delicious feast cooked in the earth? You can in Rotorua. And no visit there would be complete without a Maori cultural show. Experience the spine chilling Haka. Visit a re-creation of a traditional village and watch as local Maori people create beautiful works of art.

How about a visit to the famous Waitomo Caves? Take a serene cruise through the caves and marvel at thousands of tiny glowworms as they sparkle above you. Or if you're feeling adventurous, try black water rafting. Now that will get your pulse racing.

Can you picture yourself at Hot Water Beach on the Coromandel Coast, digging your own hot water bath in the sand!

Or walking along the pristine golden sands of New Chum beach, rated one of the top 10 in the world.

Then you travel to New Plymouth, where it's actually possible to surf some of New Zealand's best beaches in the morning, then travel to the slopes of Mt Taranaki, and snow ski in the afternoon!

The Napier region is home to some of the finest wineries in the country, and there is something just so relaxing about an organized winery tour. Or while you are in the region, have a game of golf at the world famous Cape Kidnappers.

Or travel to the Nation's Capital, Wellington, and visit the amazing Te Papa museum, take the iconic cable car up Kelburn Hill for beautiful views over Wellington and the harbor. And if you are a fan of Peter Jackson and his films, no Wellington visit would be complete without a trip to Weta Workshops.

The North Island is something to remember.
