DESTINATIONS new zealand island-hop
New Zealand is a short hop from both Australia and many of the Pacific Islands, like Fiji, Tahiti, and Samoa, and it is easy to combine your New Zealand trip with one of these locations. Some major airlines offer stop-off specials, or air passes, like Air New Zealand's Stopover Deals, for journeys between New Zealand, Australia, and some South Pacific Islands. Australia and each of the South Pacific islands offer their own unique cultures and experiences, which are quite different (and warmer!) than New Zealand.
