Volcanos And Swimming With Dolphins Headline Your New Zealand Tour

Jun 7, 2008
From vibrant major cities such as Auckland and Wellington, New Zealanders boast very active and energetic people willing to take on any task. Wedged between the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand has spectacular natural formations and landmarks and wonderful national parks.

Your to do list while in New Zealand will grow even long are you discover all the spectacular attractions and activities such as swimming with the dolphins, vast native wildlife walks, and experiencing Antarctica without even leaving New Zealand. If you dare, you can walk on a modern day glacier, go for a hike or a cruise, or, take a sensational scenic flight to get a birds eye view of all the twin islands have to offer.

If you want to see a real glacier, take the trek to Milford sound and the Fiordland National park where you can even land on the glacier itself. Adventure is just around the corner with hiking and mountain biking that help you get away from it all in New Zealands wilderness. From there, helicopter tours are often necessary to get to some of the more remote regions, but regardless of the inconvenience, you can ski, hike or bike as part of a group. Many tour companies offer complimentary hotel pick up and drop offs for your convenience.

Do you want to swim with the fishes? Make that the dolphins at the Bay of Islands. Here you can see these acrobatic creatures putting on the greatest free show as their curiosity is your reward. Dolphins will even race alongside your boat as they love human company. While there, it is not uncommon to view other marine life whether it is whales, orcas, penguins or even seals. For the most brave adventurers, you can actually swim in the water with the dolphins. An activity called boom netting allows less skillful swimmers to float in an area with the dolphins without significant risk. Just ask the skipper for his recommendation.

What better way to view an active volcano than to take a helicopter or air plane ride in the Tongariro National Park. Known worldwide, the National Park is the second oldest after Yellowstone in America. While there, three mountains Mount Ruapehu, Mount Ngauruhoe, and Tongariro are some of the greatest wonders on your New Zealand tour. The last eruption in 1995 occurred when Mount Ruapehu sent several lahars outward with plumes of ash and rock. Ruapehu is the tallest mountain on North Island and also the primary skiing location in the region. With a crater lake filled with acidic water, it is color is quite brilliant.
