England Rugby Travel is the RFU’s own travel company, offering tailored playing tours for clubs, schools, colleges and universities

New Zealanders are obsessed with rugby and after winning the Rugby World Cup 2011 in their own back yard the whole country was brought to a standstill. The All Blacks are an international brand and are recognised worldwide but you’ll be sure to meet tough opposition here in whatever form of sport you’re playing. With a country that offers spectacular glaciers and soaring mountains to sandy beaches and wondrous geothermal pools, this is a fantastic place to tour.

Visit the North Island to see Auckland, Wellington and Rotorua where you can experience Maori culture and the thrills and adventure that the North Island has to offer. On the South Island you can visit the adventure capital of the world in Queenstown and stay in Christchurch and do everything from mountain biking and wind surfing to whale watching. The warm welcome that you will receive from the friendly Kiwis will just add to your touring experience.

Tours start from £1,999 per person.
