Highlights

  • The alpine “heli-biking” is an extraordinary experience even for experienced downhill bikers. A helicopter transports sportsmen and their bikes up to a mountain peak, then you spend hours biking down the mountain.

  • Discover New Zealand by bike. There are many fantastic bike routes crossing through the whole country, you can cycle on old railway lines or follow the Waikato River.

  • Admire New Zealand’s breathtaking landscape while visiting Tongariro National Park. The park boasts dramatic scenery with high-rising volcanos, turquoise lakes, dry plateaus, mountain pastures and hot springs.

Tips

  • Sometimes, New Zealand’s inhabitants are called Kiwis, but that's never derogatory.

  • New Zealand is in the southern hemisphere. Hence, the seasons are opposite to the seasons in Germany. New Zealand is thus an ideal winter destination.

  • Look to your left! People drive on the left in New Zealand.
