New Zealand is the ultimate travel destination if you’re looking for a bit of adventure in a breathtakingly beautiful setting. It’s filled with rich culture, diverse scenery, unique wildlife and plenty of outdoor recreation to keep you entertained. And you don’t have to be a “Lord of the Rings” fan to enjoy it, either.

“It’s undoubtedly one of the most spectacular places on earth,” Liam Naden writes for TripSavvy. “Situated southeast of Australia, it may seem like a long way to travel, but your visit will be one of the most memorable trips of your lifetime.”

Thanks to Dick Jensen and Alan McKay Tours, visiting New Zealand is easier — and more affordable — than ever.

Here’s what’s on the itinerary

Dick Jensen and Alan McKay Tours’ New Zealand tour covers multiple different must-see stops over 13 days. Here are just a few of the activities you’ll enjoy along the way:

  • Tour Auckland, New Zealand’s largest and most diverse city, including the Auckland Harbor.
  • Enjoy an overnight cruise on the Milford Sound, where you might spot dolphins, seals or penguins. Kayaking is included.
  • Spark your sense of wonder on a boat ride through Waitomo’s Caves.
