The Incentive for Excellence
New Zealand is a small country that is blessed with unique activities, state-of-the-art infrastructure, modern facilities and our world-renowned welcoming Kiwi hospitality. No matter where you are, you are never far away from a plethora of stunning natural landscapes; from glaciers to geothermal hot pools, vineyards to volcanoes, white sand beaches to lakes and rainforests to farmland.
One of the many great advantages of New Zealand is that these are all within easy reach. We don’t have the challenging travel times across cities that some other destinations face so you can combine many of these varied experiences and landscapes into one itinerary. It is easy for example to begin your day with a traditional Maori welcome at sunrise before a scenic heli to a remote mountain top for a champagne breakfast, a jetboat through native rainforest, lunch at a vineyard, followed by a round of golf in the afternoon surrounded by towering mountain peaks.
New Zealand is more accessible than ever, with around 180 direct flights a month on offer from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Hawaii and Houston with capacity expected to continue as demand for New Zealand continues to grow.
