Not only will the mineral-rich water make your skin look fab, but you’ll forget what stress even feels like… The best time for a soak in NZ is during autumn, but hot pooling it in New Zealand is a great idea all year round. SAY HELLO TO YOUR NEW FRIEND, ADRENALIN Whilst on this amazing famil to New Zealand, the 100 lucky agents will get to experience a thrill-delivering jet boat ride, which will definitely get the heart pumping. But relax, it’s totally fun and exhilarating too, and you’ll probably ask for another go when you’re done! VISIT THE LORD OF THE RINGS MOVIE SET The line between reality and fantasy blurs at Hobbiton in New Zealand. Featuring in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films, this movie set is instantly recognisable, and you’ll have lots of fun with other fans (and agents) quoting the movie and taking selfies on the whimsical set that will make all your mates back home insanely jealous! MEET SOME KIWI DOLPHINS Another highlight of this experienced-based famil will be cruising with dolphins in the Bay of Islands in the country’s north. This part of New Zealand is a popular spot to see dolphins in the wild, and chances are extremely high you’ll get up close and personal with these intelligent creatures of the sea. SEE THE STARS LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN ‘EM Thanks to virtually zero light pollution and incredibly clean air, the Aoraki Mt Cook Mackenzie region is considered one of the best stargazing spots in the whole world. You’ll certainly discover this for yourself on the 100% Pure New Zealand Specialist Famil as you’re looking up at the heavens and seeing the faint glow of our own Milky Way!
