The country’s compact size makes it possible to experience everything from kayaking on flat calm waters, to a rejuvenating bush walk past a mystical waterfall, followed by an incredible meal in a vineyard with sweeping views of rolling countryside, or lapping up the gallery and café culture of a vibrant metropolis, all within a few hours.

Speaking about the partnership Steven Dixon, Regional Manager South and South East Asia, Tourism New Zealand said, “The outbound travel market from India is growing rapidly and is a promising source of international travellers for Tourism New Zealand, Thai Airways and Auckland Airport.
