Honeymoons to New Zealand

Its spectacular scenery, comfortable climate and sparse population make New Zealand the ultimate get-away-from-it-all honeymoon destination – the perfect place to relax together after the excitement (and stress!) of your wedding.

New Zealand is also made for lovers of the great outdoors, with fabulous walking trails, hidden beaches and natural wonders to discover. Plus world renowned adventure activities, for thrill seeking couples!

Your personal Honeymoon Consultant will listen to your needs and work with you to create an itinerary bespoke to you and your partner, ensuring your honeymoon is something that you will look back on fondly for the rest of your life together.

Sights & Experiences

The best sights of New Zealand are all around you – forest clad hills, sparkling streams, rolling vineyards and snow capped mountains. Everywhere you look is a picture yet to be painted.

On the South Island, the whales of Kaikoura and penguins along the Akaroa Peninsula show nature at its best. Inland, surrounded by lakes and mountains, is Queenstown, the Adventure Capital of New Zealand. From here you can bungee jump or take a jet boat ride, for a honeymoon experience you won’t forget!

The bubbling mud pools and steaming geysers of the North Island are an incredible sight. There are fantastic Mauri cultural sites here too, as well as some stunning National Parks, with all-day walking trails.

Travelling Around New Zealand

With its compact size, quiet roads and amazing scenery, New Zealand is ideal for a go-as-you-please self drive honeymoon. FREEDOM will arrange your hire car, ferry crossing and pre-booked hotels each night, so all you need to worry about is the playlist! Browse our New Zealand self drives for inspiration for your honeymoon.

Alternatively, why not hire a campervan in New Zealand? There are welcoming motorhome parks throughout the country, as well as the option to ‘freedom camp’ in many incredible locations. Your Honeymoon Planner can advise on what vehicle you’ll need, and organise one-way hire, so that you can pick your campervan up from one depot and drop it off at another.

Stopovers to New Zealand

A honeymoon to New Zealand provides the perfect opportunity to explore another destination together, en route.

You can stopover in Dubai, Asia or Australia with no extra flight costs, or fly the other way via California or Hawaii.

New Zealand is also the gateway to the Cook Islands and Fiji, to add a little time in a tropical paradise to your honeymoon.

Our Honeymoon Service

All our New Zealand Honeymoon Planners have travelled around the country. They will be able to recommend places to go, things to see and the most romantic hotels to stay at! They will also put everything in place for you, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Our honeymoon service includes:

  • Free planning, help and advice
  • Your own personal consultant with experience of New Zealand
  • Convenient flights and optional stopovers
  • A choice of 100s of hotels, resorts, lodges and activities
  • An online Wedding Gift Scheme for family and friends
  • Full ABTA and ATOL protection
