A trip to New Zealand should cover the country’s two major islands, known simply as the North Island and the South Island.
Both islands are spectacular with an abundance of extreme sports activities, but we recommend that you spend the majority of your time on the South Island, which is pretty close to paradise. Comparable in size and/or shape to Great Britain, Colorado or Japan, New Zealand has a population of only 4 million – making it one of the world’s least crowded countries.
New Zealand, also known as The Land of the Long White Cloud, will provide you with incredible landscapes, lush forests, amazing wildlife and a pleasant climate, making it an adult’s playground for outdoor activities.
South Island (the outdoor adventure island)
One popular way to see the South Island is a drive that starts at Christchurch, heads to Mt. Cook, down to Queenstown, over to Fiordlands National Park, up through Westland National Park, and crossing to the North Island using the ferry from Picton to Wellington. Be sure to include Milford Sound, Te Anau, Fox Glacier/Franz Joseph Glacier, Akaroa, Mt Cook, whale watching. view more
