The wedding is sorted, now for the honeymoon.

With all the invites out, wedding venue booked, dress and suits chosen, band for the evenings festivities booked you can start thinking about some of the really fun stuff like the honeymoon. But where in the world should you be heading to celebrate this momentous occasion? New Zealand of course!

Why New Zealand?

It’s pretty simple really, you get a lot of diversity packed into a smaller geographic area that is stunning in every way you look at it. So one hour you could be surfing on a beach and the next hour you could be snowboarding in the mountains. In summary we think the best reasons for choosing the land of the long white cloud are:

  • The beautiful diversity packed into a small geographic area gives you any number of options
  • The people are warm, friendly and will make your holiday a real pleasure
  • The scenery is something you have to see to believe
  • All seasons have something different to offer a discerning couple
  • Yes it’s further away than most destinations but it also means you can have golden sand beaches to yourself and never feel over crowded

What places are the best?

It depends on what time of the year you are coming and how long you have to spend in New Zealand. So rather than spilling out line after line of boring detail we have recommended places across NZ we think you should travel to based on your available time and if you are coming in the cooler or warmer months. Also remember that these locations are meant to be great exploring points for seeing some of New Zealand’s famous tourist attractions.
