New Zealand is a dream tourist destination, and truly presents a once-in-a-lifetime experience for travellers. If you are planning a trip abroad, why not consider it? It’s a beautiful and wild destination, full of mountains, culture and incredible resorts. In this blog, we’ll show you New Zealand for tourists: the top 3 locations.
Once named by Rudyard Kilping as the eighth wonder of the world, Milford Sound is an absolutely incredible region of New Zealand. Formed by glaciers, the landscape is a majestic mass of mountains, waterfalls and icy cliffs. You can take sightseeing cruises around the region, allowing you to see the dolphins and penguins that are native to the region; or simply taking a kayaking tour at your own pace. Make sure check out the Milford Discovery Centre before you leave!
Despite being rocked by several earthquakes, Christchurch is still standing, and what a way to stand! Many of the original attractions have survived the quakes, including the Christchurch Botanic Gardens. This network of green conservatories and gardens is home to some of the largest and oldest trees in all of New Zealand. Don’t go without taking a ride on the Christchurch Gondola, which will take you all the way to the top of Mt. Cavendish!
We finish our tour with a rip roaring visit to the most active volcano in New Zealand. You can get extremely close to the Island by taking a helicopter ride, courtesy of Air Safaris. You’ll get so close that the tour will require you to wear a hard hat and a gas mask! This is one tour that isn’t for the faint hearted, but you are sure to have an explosive experience!
