Examples of Itineraries for Special Interest Tours

New Zealand Photography Tour

Experience the diversity of New Zealand scenery. For example, you will find fiords, mountains, volcanoes, pre-historic forests, lakes, beaches, waterfalls, glaciers, glacial lakes, and dramatic cliffs–New Zealand has it all.

We can also arrange scenic flights if your group would like to capture New Zealand from the air. For instance, popular options are flights of the Volcanic Plateau and Emerald Lakes and New Zealand’s glaciers.

One photography highlight includes the clear night sky, with opportunities to capture celestial photography and the Southern Lights. The below was a recent photography group that toured the South Island for 10 days; their highlight was capturing the Aurora in Dunedin.
