7 sites to book perfect New Zealand tours for singles

The top tour companies celebrating solo travel to New Zealand.

New Zealand is a remarkably beautiful destination that’s only a hop, skip and a jump away from Australia. Within the nation lie arresting vistas, snow-capped mountains, active volcanoes, award-winning wineries and a wealth of adventure sports that will get your heart pumping and your adrenaline up.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a party of 10 or a party of one, New Zealand doesn’t discriminate – and neither do these tours, which are absolutely perfect for solo travellers.
