Hot and Steamy



Famous for its geothermal activity, New Zealand allows visitors to get close to this natural force in a number of experiences ranging from the relaxing to the riveting.

Soak up your surroundings and unwind in one of the country’s many hot springs, some which are recognised as amongst the best spas in the world. For those wanting something a little more private, check out the Onsen Hot Tubs — perfect for enjoying a glass of wine while taking in the stunning scenery.

Adventurous travellers can also create their own hot pool. Head to a special beach where hot water flows from an underground thermal river and start digging the sand to make a hot pool for two.

If you want to get even closer to the volcanic activity bubbling beneath the surface, you can wander through geysers, hot springs, active mud pools and some of the most impressive silica terraces in the world. Visitors can even explore the inner crater of one of New Zealand’s active volcanoes.

Turn Up the Romance

Wherever you are in New Zealand, romance isn’t far away. Make the most of the country’s unforgettable experiences on land, sea and air.

Take a flight for two over Auckland’s spectacular Hauraki Gulf and the ancient volcanic island of Rangitoto to an exceptional destination for lunch. You’ll soon understand why it’s been described as ‘one of the most romantic places on earth’.

Once you come back down, explore New Zealand’s premier wine region in old-world romantic fashion — by bicycle. Pedal between the vineyards, take in the picturesque countryside and sample some outstanding wines along the way.

If you’re feeling adventurous, make your dream of swimming with dolphins a reality. In this memorable experience to share with your someone special, swim with the protected Hector’s Dolphins in their natural habitat. You might also like to take a boat ride to reach some of the country’s more remote and awe-inspiring destinations. In the evening, sit back, relax and look up, for a stargazing experience in the clear southern skies.

To tick off your wish list and see all New Zealand has to offer, we believe you need freedom and independence to create your own dream trip. Travel your way, in the luxury of a Wilderness motorhome.
