What to do in New Zealand
New Zealand is one of the best tourist destinations you can ever dream of in the South Pacific. It’s a nation of diverse natural beauty, with a great mix of jagged mountains, rolling pastures, fiords, lakes, rivers, and pristine beaches.
That’s why you should start your trip to see its great outdoors. Enjoy the fresh air and the sea of clouds as you hike Mount Tasman at Aoraki Mount Cook National Park.
Journey on to Mount Aspiring National Park to continue your hike, or you can go rock climbing, canyoneering, mountain biking, and kayaking. Abel Tasman National Park is another beautiful place for kayaking, but you can also sit back and relax on any of its golden sand beaches.
The Southern Alps of South Island is another perfect example of New Zealand’s magnificent countryside. You can see where postcards capture the stunning snow-capped peaks from Mackenzie Country. The gorgeous mountains and lakes continue south, making the best backdrop for the towns of Glenorchy, Wanaka, and Queenstown.
Another region where mountains kiss the water is Fiordland National Park’s Milford Sound. Visit the park’s marine reserves too and see animals like dolphins and penguins. The Catlins and Otago Peninsula are also great places to see animals in their natural habitat.
New Zealand also has plenty of cool glaciers. Don’t miss the Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier in Westland National Park. You’ll get up close and personal with snow and ice like never before.
But if you came to New Zealand for the cities, you won’t be disappointed too. Auckland is a pleasant city where you’ll find cool waterfront districts, the iconic Sky Tower, and heaps of museums. For New Zealand’s best museum, head to Wellington for Te Papa and have fun learning the local culture.
Other great cities you should visit are Christchurch for its gardens and Dunedin for its Cadbury World. Are you an adrenaline junkie? Go to Queenstown for bungy jumping, skydiving, white water rafting, and more.
When to visit New Zealand
For fewer crowds and the best weather for hiking, the best time for you to visit New Zealand is during spring (September to November) and fall (March to May).
English is one of the official languages here, so no worries when chatting with Kiwis and exploring the country. Plus you can fly to New Zealand anytime since Australians only need a valid passport to visit according to Smartraveller.
Travelling to and around New Zealand
You’ll be landing in Frankfurt Airport, and from there you can reach other parts of New Zealand by plane or train.
