Few, if any, countries can match the natural beauty of New Zealand. It’s a veritable paradise – arguably the most beautiful country in the world – and one that Goway is dedicated to helping travellers explore, from its towering mountains to pastoral grasslands, winding coastlines, verdant wine regions, and attractive cities.
Goway knows New Zealand inside and out, with a team of Destination Specialists that rely on expert training as well as extensive experience working, travelling, and even living in destination.
There are few limits to how a traveller can engage with New Zealand’s natural bounty, something showcased on every Goway itinerary. The tour operator can plan such classic nature experiences a cruise of Milford Sound, one of the world’s most beautiful and famous fjords; whale watching off the coast of Kaikoura; and a visit to the amazing glowworm caves of Waitomo (photo above), where the bioluminescent organisms light up the cave ceiling and make it look like the Milky Way.
Travellers can also explore the shifting landscapes of the Central North Island – home to national parks, volcanic beaches, and lush forests – on a road trip, or arrange for tours of some of the nation’s most famous wine regions, including Marlborough and Hawke’s Bay.
Adventure Capital of the World
Goway’s travel products also take advantage of the New Zealand’s penchant for adventure. Dubbed the ‘the Adventure Capital of the World,’ Queenstown on the South Island abounds with opportunities to bungee jump, jet-ski, skydive, and to take advantage of the natural wonderland surrounding the lakeside city.
But adventure in New Zealand is not limited to Queenstown. Goway can help travellers hike across Franz Josef or Fox glaciers, ride a helicopter over the summit of Aoraki/Mt. Cook, or white-water raft on the Kaituna River.
New Zealand’s nature might get top billing, but the country also has a rich culture that creates a hospitable, welcoming environment for visitors and Goway clients can engage with Māori cultural traditions to learn about the first peoples of the islands and see how their Polynesian culture has continued to define the nation into the modern day. Rotorua, with its collection of Māori cultural villages and many Māori residents, is ideal to experience manaakitanga (Maori hospitality).
Meanwhile, Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch are also great places to connect with the diverse residents of the nation, dine in award-winning restaurants serving the best international dishes, and enjoy the laid-back café culture that makes New Zealand so livable.
Lord of the Rings
And don’t forget about the movie magic of Middle-earth. Travellers can visit the Hobbiton Movie Set to experience life as a hobbit or go behind the scenes of the filmmaking of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit at Weta Cave in the capital Wellington.
Travel advisors can earn cash rewards on every booking they make to New Zealand with the GowayPro loyalty program. For the month of October, they can earn an additional $50 for every booking they make to Australia or New Zealand.
