New Zealand

Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expert Jane's verdict
Adventurous couples looking for a wow factor honeymoon will find their nirvana in the breathtaking landscapes of New Zealand. Heli-hike vast glaciers, horse-ride across the bush, swim in hot springs and cruise the Milford Sound. Choose a self-drive tour for the freedom of the road, staying boutique hotels en route, or escape in a camper van.
