Wellington Holidays

Holidays in Wellington take you to New Zealand’s North Island, where you can discover diverse landscapes and a relaxed city culture. It’s home to more restaurants than New York City, with the surrounding farmlands providing fresh produce and delicious succulent meats.

Wellington is the capital of New Zealand and packs a lot into a small space. It’s home to boutique shops, little cafés and gourmet restaurants, as well as galleries and award-winning museums for those wanting to explore the country’s culture. Hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, horse riding and lots more can all be enjoyed in the landscapes which surround the city, while wine tasting and Lord of the Rings tours offer something different.
