What to Eat on Your New Zealand Holiday
Due to its geographic location, New Zealand's cuisine mainly relies on locally produced ingredients. As one of the largest sheep farming countries in the world, it will come as no surprise that lamb is one of the local specialities. Usually seasoned with herbs and accompanied with vegetables, roast lamb is one of New Zealand's most popular dishes.
Food in New Zealand is influenced by British cuisine as well as the indigenous Māori culture and Kiwis still cook special meals on heated stones. This ancient method of cooking with earth ovens is called hāngi and is used to cook meat and vegetables as well as steamed pudding.
A full tour of the local food culture is not complete without tasting fish freshly grilled by the beach. Pick snapper, hoki, terakihi or squid from the catch of the day your and dip your toes in the water as you wait for your meal.
In addition to the quality of its food, New Zealand is known internationally for its award-winning wines, from full-bodied Pinot Noir to lighter Merlot and fruity white wines, there is a tipple to suit every taste. Wines are often paired with local cheeses made from sheep's milk .
Discover New Zealand's Rich Culture and Ancient Traditions
Discover what being a Kiwi means and the rich Māori culture. Sport has conributed to spreading this culture with the haka, a traditional war dance performed before every national rugby match. This ancient dance was traditionally performed by Māoris on the battlefield but also when villages were signing peace treaties. The terrifying dance is used to impress opponents with foot-stamping, body slapping and facial grimaces. The ritual is particularly loved by sport fans who scrutinize the reaction of the challengers.
The traditional welcome pōwhiri starts with the host challenging guests by laying down an item – usually a piece of wood – for the invitee to pick up as a sign of peace. A woman from the host’s village will then sound a note from a conch shell and the guests’ must respond with their own call. Joint prayers and speeches from both sides follow. Although this is an ancestral and long ceremony, a shorter version of the ceremony is performed at hotels to welcome their guests. For a less formal greeting, hosts and guests welcome each other by touching noses. This is followed by food sharing, a traditional sign of Māori hospitality.
New Zealand Holidays with Kids
The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies where shot in the lush countryside around Waikato and the whole family will appreciate a visit to these iconic landscapes.
New Zealand has one of the darkest skies in the world as light pollution is limited. This makes it the ideal destination for stargazing. Visit the Mount John Observatory to see the huge telescopes and talk to guides who will help you spot comets.
Many treks, hikes and walks are accessible for children so get your walking shoes on and explore the untouched landscape. This is the perfect occasion to teach children the importance of conservation and human impact on biodiversity. More relaxed activities such as mini golf, bathing in natural hot water pools and air ballooning are amongst the other popular family activities which New Zealand is known for.
New Zealand: Your Adventure Awaits!
With its numerous mountain peaks, forests, lakes and rivers, New Zealand is the perfect playground for adventure seekers. Hike the Tongariro to admire the volcanic land, emerald lakes and solidified lava flows. The trek will take you to Lake Taupo and Ruapehu.
For an adrenaline rush to remember climb the world’s highest waterfall at Wanaka. Explore the secret caves on the way to the top and admire the powerful waterfall while staying dry! You can explore the extensive natural caves by walking or canoeing. St Benedict's Caverns are ideal for beginners and feature a zip line crossing the 100m long 40m high chamber filled with stalactites and stalagmites.
Bungy jumping is another of New Zealand's popular activities. The iconic Kawarau bridge or locations above Lake Taupo are some of the best destinations to indulge in this extreme pastime.
