If postcard-perfect landscapes, world-class wineries and opportunities to get a little active would excite your preferred clients, look no further than New Zealand’s South Island.

With help from Viva Holidays, a visit to the South Island will ignite your client’s passion for life. From the snow-capped mountains of Queenstown to the vibrant rebirth of Christchurch, they’ll be planning their return before they’ve even left.

 

WINING AND DINING

A fresh breath of air flows through Christchurch after recent re-building and restoration. Their dynamic food and drink scene keeps growing as farm to table concepts create a unique experience for the diner. They’ve also recently been named one of New York Times’ top places to visit for 2020 – you can’t argue with that!

Make sure to add the Riverside Market to your client’s itinerary to give them the opportunity to sample locally grown and prepared fare from the Canterbury region.

Heading south to Queenstown, suggest they go bar-hopping through Queenstown’s energetic drinking and dining scene.

And the wine-lovers will rejoice! The South Island has a thriving vineyard culture. There are opportunities to learn the art of wine-tasting from the experts or to sip and cycle their way through award-winning wineries.

 

HIKING AND BIKING

For those who prefer the great outdoors, Queenstown is nature’s playground. Set against a striking backdrop of snowy mountains and pristine lakes, it’s truly is the mecca of all things adventure. From hiking to mountain biking or skiing or kayaking, there is an adventure activity for every kind of adrenaline-junkie.

In beautiful Christchurch they can zip-line their way through Port Hills or swim with dolphins in nearby Akaroa. Or why not recommend a hot-air balloon ride over the Canterbury Plains or jet-boat on the Waimak River? 

If they want to soak up some local culture, suggest a visit to Puari Village. They’ll be able to immerse themselves in the fascinating Maori culture with different exhibitions, canoe tours and sampling Maori food.
