Title
Best of New Zealand with Sydney

Vacation Overview
It 's true that sheep outnumber people in New Zealand six to one, but lucky for ewe, this untamed land also boasts an impressive number of soaring mountains, lush rainforests, and stunning fiords. The North Island 's Bay of Plenty sets the stage for the abundance of spectacular sights you 'll see on both of New Zealand 's breathtaking islands. Rotorua 's shooting geysers are only surpassed by the South Island 's soaring Southern Alps, which you 'll reach from charming Christchurch by way of the scenic TranzAlpine train. Throughout your tour of New Zealand, you 'll have the opportunity to walk along the Franz Josef Glacier, warm your toes in natural hot springs, and partake in all of the fun that Queenstown, the "Adventure Capital of the World," has to offer. With so many ways to work up an appetite, you 'll appreciate a special barbecue on a local farm and a traditional cooked-in-the-ground hot stone Hangi dinner.

With its sparkling harbor, trendy beaches, and happy, go-with-the-flow locals, nothing makes a splash quite like the city of Sydney. Cap off your tour of New Zealand with a 4-day Monograms vacation to the "Harbour City" for some Aussie-fueled culture and fun.
