In my experience most people who do not live in New Zealand, definitely want to visit, they do not need convincing, rather they need an excuse, and enticement. For Gay and Lesbian travelers, such an enticement has just gone online in the form of New Zealand Awaits.
Lonely Planet’s top travel lists for 2015 rated New Zealand as one of the most “inclusive and progressive” gay-friendly travel destinations on the planet, second only to Denmark. So why wait?
Debbie and her partner Karen have lived and traveled overseas for many years, but they have decided to take the plunge and set up a business introducing the magic of New Zealand to Gay and Lesbian Travelers.
Often when planning a vacation, it can be hard to find a destination that suits the different interests and desires of your travel companion(s).
Not so with New Zealand. Our small size means you get huge diversity in what you see and do. With something to suit every taste, New Zealand has it all.
Debbie has been on the road designing the best trips, all with no more than 8 per trip:
- Bike, Hike and Yak January 10-24 2016, February 21-March 6 2016
- Fur, Feather and Fins January 31 – February 14 2016
- Yummy Tummy March 20 – April 3 2016 for all those food and wine lovers
Self Drive: Debbie also offers a Self-Drive option with Ready to Go itineraries, or she can design a one of a kind trip around your particular dreams and interests.
Privately Guided Travel: Using your desires and dreams as the springboard, we’ll use our local knowledge to create the experience of a lifetime, and be your personal guide while you’re here
