A true haven for thrill seekers, set amongst jaw dropping surroundingsDiscover the remote beauty of this incredible country and explore some of the most spectacular backdrops on earth
Matching its southern sister in terms of natural beauty, the North Island of New Zealand is home to some spectacular scenery and extraordinary sites all of its own.
With its rugged mountains, magnificent glaciers and sweeping landscapes of forests and lakes, you could hardly wish for a more picture-perfect location for a luxury holiday than South Island.
From the awe-inspiring beauty of its national parks to the warm, welcoming nature of its people, it’s not hard to see why New Zealand is such a well-loved holiday destination. Bigger than the UK but with a population of under five million, this peaceful, picturesque country offers an alluring combination of relaxation and adventure.
Our luxury holidays in New Zealand offer truly stunning and diverse scenery. Bask in the beauty of everything from tranquil fiords, meandering rivers and sandy beaches to imposing, snow-capped mountains, magnificent volcanoes and icy glaciers. Take a helicopter flight to enjoy aerial views of the Marine Volcano, or to see the undulating Southern Alps. You can also visit the country’s natural hot springs and dramatic shooting geysers.
Reconnect with nature on your holiday with some whale and dolphin watching off the coast. Kaikoura is the perfect place to view these majestic sea creatures, and it’s possible to see them by boat, helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft. You can even take the opportunity to swim with dusky dolphins.
Famed for its delicious fresh produce, including some of the world’s finest organic foods, New Zealand is also a food lover’s paradise. Tuck into beef from the Waikato, freshly landed seafood and fruit picked in the Bay of Plenty. There are plenty of mouthwatering wines to sample too. Considered by many to produce the best ‘New World’ wines of any country, New Zealand is dotted with beautiful vineyards. The north is known for its Syrah and Bordeaux style blends, while Riesling and Pinot Noir are grown in the south.
You can immerse yourself in the rich culture of this enchanting holiday destination too. Māori traditions help to give the country a unique character. From performances of song and dance, to hangi feasts prepared in earth ovens, to sculptures made of bone, shell and stone, the Māori culture remains very much a part of New Zealand’s identity. Meanwhile, Auckland, which has been rated the third most liveable city in the world, boasts an abundance of museums and art galleries, and it has a vibrant café and restaurant scene.
The country is also a mecca for thrill-seekers. Offering windsurfing, white water rafting, mountain biking, bungee jumping, heli skiing and much more besides, it’s a popular place among those looking for an adrenaline fix.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
