Imagine cycling in one of the most picturesque areas of the world, while inhaling the scent of wine that lingers in the air. This is just one of the things to do for tourists who are thinking of choosing a New Zealand tour package. The actual list of activities to indulge in and experiences to savour is almost never ending. From some of the best adventure sports to the finest family fun, there is something to entice everyone in this tiny island nation. Without a doubt, New Zealand is the adventure capital of the world, which is many tourists choose to come here. The sheer range of activities on offer is staggering and includes bungee jumping, parasailing, skydiving and even caving. The icing on the cake is the fact that all the activities are enjoyed under strict vigilance of professionals, which means that the tourists are safe at all times. 

Travellers get to experience the same if they opt for a guided tour of the tribal areas. There are several dance and warrior style performances organised by the tribal people that tourists could watch, in addition to purchasing samples of tribal artefacts. New Zealand is also popular for its numerous vineyards, most of which are open to public and provide tourists the chance to see how wine is produced right from the seed stage. Many vineyards also offer wine tasting sessions and sell their products at reduced rates. In addition, this country also has a fantastic food culture, allowing tourists to sample several delicious flavours and fresh seafood. There is much to do for nature lovers too during holidays in New Zealand, because there are not just animals in the wild to observe, but also gardens and parks.
