The Destinations
A small set of islands in the South Pacific, where sheep outnumber people ten to one, New Zealand is decidedly remote and rural. This is an outdoor adventurer's paradise, and finding solitude is easy among the mountains and volcanoes, the thousands of beaches, the lush forests, and the rivers that make up the vast majority of the country's landscape. But make no mistake: From Auckland to Wellington, situated on either side of the North Island, New Zealand is home to world-class cosmopolitan cities, too. Thanks in part to an internationally recognized wine trade and some of the juiciest grass-fed steaks on the planet, New Zealand is lacking nothing in the way of culinary prowess. Revelrous nightclubs are easy to find, too, as are boutique shops, fine art galleries, and museums. Still, no part of the country is more than 80 miles from the coast; grab a paddle, rent a boat, and join the locals on an island adventure.

And then there's Fiji, about 1,500 miles north of New Zealand. Emerging from the azure waters of the South Pacific, Fiji is the setting of our deserted-island fantasies. More than 300 islands make up this archipelago nation, where secluded beaches, unassuming villages, and posh resorts inspire the glossy pages of travel magazines. Board a sleek catamaran to island hop from beach to sugar-sand beach, marvel at orchids at the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, or raft through the rain forests buried deep in the island interiors. The tropical marine climate brings warm, breezy weather year-round, so the right time to visit is all the time.

Explore it all on an 11-day, 8-night self-guided trip, courtesy of Pacific Holidays.
