Possible destinations in New Zealand:

  • Sports Tours to Palmerston North

    Palmerston North is located in the eastern Manawatu Plains near the north bank of the Manawatu River. The area provides every type of accommodation - top class hotels, hostels, bed and breakfasts. An excellent array of restaurants and bars to suit all palates are a popular feature of the city.

  • Sports Tours to Rotorua

    Built in the middle of the Taupo Volcanic Zone, Rotorua is surrounded by geothermal marvels with water vents and hot springs emerging from the landscape. Unsurprisingly, many of the town’s attractions are based around these natural phenomena as visitors flock to witness bubbling mud pools and exploding geysers.

  • Sports Tours to Aukland
    Known as the “City of Sails” thanks to the large number of yachts in the Waitemata Harbour, Auckland also boasts stunning natural beauty with over 40 extinct volcanoes under and around the city. Culturally, there is a strong Polynesian flavour thanks to a healthy appreciation of indigenous Maori customs.

     
  • Sports Tours to Wellington

    Overlooking Cook Strait, the passage of water running between the North and South Islands, New Zealand’s capital is suitably situated at the geographic centre of the country. The “Windy City” surprising has a large number of facilities for its size; Wellington has more bars, restaurants and cafes per head than New York City.

  • Sports Tours to Queenstown

    Sitting on the banks of Lake Wakatipu and bordered by the Southern Alps mountain range, Queenstown is a haven for adrenaline junkies. Skiing, bungy jumping, jet boating and mountain biking are just some of the activities found in the town and its surrounding area.

     

  • Sports Tours to Christchurch
    “The Garden City” is the largest on the South Island and well deserving of its nickname. Away from the abundant natural beauty, Christchurch retains all of the amenities and attractions that a sports tourer might expect from a city its size, including; museums, wildlife reserves, parks and gardens.

     
New Zealand tour information


A geological wonder, the Land of the Long White Cloud is renowned for its breathtaking landscapes - from glacial mountains to soft, sandy beaches, and all the lush forests and clear lakes in between - and the hospitality of its inhabitants. Despite being intense competitors, these friendly islanders will be there with a handshake and refreshments even after the toughest of fixtures, making a sports tour to New Zealand a great option for any touring team.

Sports tours to New Zealand
Rugby Union isn’t just New Zealand's national sport; it’s a national obsession. Since the first oval ball was kicked in the colony in 1870, through to the World Cup win in 1987 and the subsequent failures to recapture the trophy, rugby has been ingrained in the country’s cultural identity. Today, the All Blacks are one of the most immediately recognisable sporting teams on the planet; an international brand whose results affect the mood of the nation. Other Kiwi teams on the world stage include the All Whites (men's football), Black Ferns (women’s rugby), the Silver Ferns (netball), the Black Caps (cricket), the Tall Blacks (basketball) and the Black Sticks (hockey).

Would be spider-men (and women) can gain an altogether different perspective on the city from regular climbing tours that go to the peak of this majestic structure.

For the especially brave, bungee jumping from a specially erected platform is also possible. Don't fancy doing it on your own? Strap yourself to your team mate and do it together and a boat will be waiting for you at the bottom to take you back to shore.
