We like to put the “how long should I visit New Zealand for?” question in the same category as “how long is a piece of string?”  The answer is, it depends. The short answer is 14 days as a minimum time frame for visiting both the North Island and South Island of New Zealand. That’s roughly one week’s travel time for both islands and is just long enough for any visitor to experience the best of the country.

The natural grandeur of our landscapes is what New Zealand is most famous for – our cities tend to fly under the radar. And although it’s true they don’t have the old architecture and heritage of more mature cities, what they lack in history, they make up for in their quirky, distinctly New Zealand approach. It’s this aspect combined with locations that work with, rather than against, the natural landscape that makes New Zealand’s cities such enjoyable places to work, live and play.
