The island nations of the Pacific are scattered across the map like flower petals, but one thing that unites them all is the ever present sound of the ocean. If you’re looking for the perfect beach you probably won’t find it: there’s one around every headland. The Pacific is not just about relaxing on palm-fringed white-sand beaches, you’ll also discover dramatic coastlines built for long walks where the wind and sea-spray are your only companions.
The kaleidoscopic marine life of the Pacific will connect you with a world that you might otherwise only know through the narration of David Attenborough. While cities and resorts are dotted across the region the best feature is nature. You can hike through jungle to swim under a waterfall in Fiji; or be awed by snow-capped mountains and deep fjords of New Zealand.
Travelling to New Zealand? Don't worry, you won't have to choose between the two islands.

The North Island of New Zealand is blessed with spectacular scenery, ranging from bubbling thermal pools to fast flowing rivers. The best way to see all of this? Get up close and personal. This itinerary includes biking through Karangahake Gorge and hiking the Tongariro Crossing – one of the world's most famous one-day hikes – before jet boats and kayaks provide the transport along the Whanganui River. Mix in some bubbling mud and a traditional hangi dinner, and this is the perfect active introduction to New Zealand.
New Zealand is the perfect place for adrenaline and activity, and there's nowhere in the country more suited to that than the South Island.

If you're not out of breath just from reading all that, then it's time to start packing.
Begin in Auckland, and travel to the subtropical Bay of Islands before making your way through Rotorua and across the picturesque Marlborough Sounds to the South Island.
