Sometimes you just want to get away from the snow and enjoy a tour filled with warm weather, and plenty of Touring and excitement. And New Zealand certainly has that in bundles. In fact, The South Island of New Zealand is known as the Adventure Capital of the Southern Hemisphere. Combine that with Auckland, and Rotorua on the North Island, as well as a visit to Hobbiton Village where you can enjoy a beer in the Pub used in The Lord of The Rings movies, and you are bound to have yourself a merry good time.
But no tour to New Zealand is complete unless you allow yourself the options of visiting Australia in the Spring time. Enjoy the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef, the tropics of the Kuranda Rain Forest and then head down to Sydney to enjoy some of the most fantastic sights you can see. Bridge Climb, Sydney Opera House and so much more.

Finally, just when you think you had enough, stop off in Fiji and relax for a few days under the warmth of a tropical sun and enjoy a cold tropical drink in the sand.
