01 August 19

Christmas in New Zealand is a magical time of year, packed full of delicious food, great weather and memorable traditions. Celebrate kiwi-style while spending time with new friends and creating unique memories on a once-in-a-lifetime festive coach holiday.

Here’s our list of the top 5 reasons to visit New Zealand during the Festive Season:

1. No cooking and cleaning

We’ll plan and book your transport, accommodation, most meals and ‘must do’ attractions – all you need to do is turn up and have fun! Sit back and relax in armchair comfort, knowing the hassle of overlooking hidden locations or taking a wrong turn is removed.

2. Unique experiences

On Christmas Day, travel into the scenic Fiordland National Park to Milford Sound and board the Milford Mariner for your amazing overnight cruise. View spectacular waterfalls, rainforest, mountains and wildlife and enjoy a delicious Christmas dinner with all the trimmings prepared by the on-board chef.

3. Make new friends

Share your holiday experiences with like-minded people and make a network of wonderful new friends. Your friendly tour guide will be on hand to ensure everyone feels welcome, relaxed and that your holiday is a memorable one.

4. The weather is great

December marks the first month of summer with sunny days, mild nights and temperatures between 12-24 degrees. Explore a range of unique attractions and picturesque regions including a cruise on board the TSS Earnslaw in Queenstown, the beautiful gardens of Larnach Castle and the world-renowned TranzAlpine rail journey.

5. Delicious food

Receive priority reserved dining at breakfast and dinner and enjoy ‘wine time’ offering discounted pre-dinner drinks at the hotels. Enjoy an abundance of fresh food and wine, including a unique speciality dinner and Haggis ceremony whilst in Dunedin.

 

Experience it all on a fully escorted Festive Coach Holiday.

Tours include airfares, taxes, modern coach travel, 4 star hotel accommodation, most meals, sightseeing and attractions.

One previous traveller commented, “This was a great way to spend Christmas, I didn’t have to cook or clean, it was one of the best organised tours I’ve been on for the last 20 years!”

New Zealand is a truly unique place with captivating landscapes and sensational culture; make life-long friends and share unforgettable memories during the festive season, on a Grand Pacific Tours Coach Holiday.
