A quick video update from our director, John about the current situation.
New Zealand, like most countries, has now imposed quarantine restrictions on arrivals into the country as a preventative measure to help contain the Coronavirus (COVID 19).
We are currently assisting our travellers in the country with any changes they may have to make to their travel plans and postponing trips for those intending to travel in the next few months.
The Silver Fern team also wish to stress that we continue to take bookings for the Pacific Spring, 2020 and Summer 2021 so do give us a call with your plans and ideas on 01636 813544 or contact us at .

“Oh the weather outside is…” delightful actually! Yes, it’s Christmas in New Zealand and there’s nothing frightful about this weather…
Christmas still takes place on the 25th of December in New Zealand, but this means it falls in the summertime. So while you’ll still find Christmas trees, tinsel, even the odd novelty jumper, you’ll probably be wearing shorts, shades, and lashings of sun cream at the time.
Come and meet us as Destinations: The Holiday and Travel Show at the Olympia London between Thursday 30th January and the 2nd February 2020.

For December marks the beginning of the summer season, and brings with it long sunny days and warm summer nights. This is the New Zealand many of us have in our mind’s eye – the white sands and turquoise ocean, tropical-looking forests lining the shores … and Christmas on the beach!
