New Zealand

This could be your next unforgettable destination

Lakes, mountains and wide-open spaces, New Zealand is all about the great outdoors. It’s perfect for an epic LGBTQ+ family holiday, so earmark a few weeks and let’s start planning.

You have both the North and the South Island to explore, so visit incredible cities such as Auckland and Wellington, as well as remote landscapes with glass-clear fjords and shores with golden sand beaches just waiting for family time and sandcastle building.

If you and the kids are huge fans of The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, then the Hobbiton Movie Set Tours are an absolute must – your tour starts with a drive through 1,250 acres of sheep farm, taking in views across the Kaimai Ranges. The country’s biodiversity is second to none, so keep your eyes peeled for the kiwi bird, sea lions, alpacas and penguins or zipline through a native forest on an unforgettable canopy tour.

Elle Says:

Travelling with friends? Campervan travel is really easy in New Zealand, so why not hire a two or four-berth campervan, split the driving and explore all that this beautiful country has to offer.

If you have any questions about this destination, then let me know. I can help you plan a holiday here and give you recommendations that you may not have thought of!

Destination Rainbow

Destination Rainbow is an independent travel agency specialising in LGBTQ+ family holidays. But we have many strings to our multi-coloured bow. We also love planning romantic escapes for couples and are always happy to hear from friends and allies who need to escape to a sun-kissed beach or finally fulfil that long-awaited adventure.

Our travel agency is run by Elle, an LGBTQ+ mum of 3 who knows how important it is to get a family holiday right. We offer expert advice on how safe a country is and recommend hotels that welcome LGBTQ+ families with open arms. By researching the best resorts, chatting to those who work there and hearing our own guests’ experiences, we are building a collection of favourite retreats where you can be your true selves. They are competitively priced, too.

Our ethos is about personal service, trust and building a lasting relationship, so you know exactly who to call whenever you need a holiday.
