Wellington and the Kapiti Coast
New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington is known as ‘the world’s coolest little capital’. This compact city encompasses a waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, and colourful timber houses on the surrounding hills.
Wellington’s rugged topography offers wonderful walking and cycling tracks. Experience an exhilarating horseback ride through tracks to wide-open stretches of sand. Stop at a café for coffee and simply unwind.
Or. For the more sedate, take a Heli flight to nearby Wairarapa and taste a range of award-winning wines.
Or, maybe take a Wellington Walking Gourmet Tour with Zest Food Tours – experience New Zealand’s culinary, café and coffee capital.
Visit Te Papa Tongarewa – Museum of New Zealand and views New Zealand artwork, Maori cultural artifacts, the moving Gallipoli exhibition and more.
Wellington is home to the Zealandia – the world’s first fully-fenced urban ecosanctuary. Hidden in a suburban valley lies hectares of bush – hear the songs of the flourishing native bird population.
