If you love to watch rugby, and you love to travel the world, 2017 is going to be a very special year indeed! The British and Irish Lion’s Tour is set to take place in New Zealand from 3rd June to 8th July, and if your idea of the perfect holiday includes visiting new places while supporting your favourite team overseas, there is no better place to do it!
A country of two very different islands, New Zealand is an incredible holiday destination in its own right, with stunning landscapes, endless activities, and accommodations to suit every budget. When you combine that with, quite possibly, the friendliest people on earth, great food, and stunning New World Wines, NZ becomes a very attractive holiday hotspot for singles, couples and families alike.
While June and July are not the warmest months in New Zealand (it is winter, after all), it is still a great time of the year to visit, and if you are partial to a spot of skiing in world-class resorts, make sure you include Queenstown in your travel itinerary. Powder is skiing is at its best during June and July, and there are slopes to suit every skill level – even beginners.
