How long do I need in New Zealand?

New Zealand isn’t a big country, therefore you don’t have to travel far to see new and different things. In two to three weeks, you can visit one of the islands in great detail or see a few highlights of both the North and the South Island.

Three to five weeks gives you the opportunity to visit both islands and travel at a relaxed pace. If you have more than five weeks, you can see all the nooks and crannies of New Zealand. Be inspired by some of our favourite travel routes for couples.
