New Zealand is a unique experience and one that cannot be explained by any list. The people are among the friendliest bunch you will ever meet and are known to be extremely hospitable to tourists. But unlike most places, there are a number of unique places to visit in New Zealand. We have researched and found you some of the best locations to go to. Here in this article, you will find some of the best places to visit and where you can look at staying; just to make things easy for you.
1. Bay of Islands
The Bay of Islands is located quite close to Auckland and will take you about 3 hours to reach from the capital city by car. If you are a marine life or water sports enthusiast, this location should be a must visit for you. You can enjoy the great beaches, explore close to 144 islands, go scuba diving, etc. But this location is much more than the few examples we cited and to be honest we can’t stop gushing over how incredible this place is, and in all honesty, we are trying not to ruin the spectacular things that are awaiting your next visit. Let’s come to the business end of things; we suggest that you try staying in the Duke of Marlborough hotel that has the oldest pub license in all of New Zealand; the place is incredible and the location that it is in, is quite simply breath-taking.
2. Milford Sound
There are many debates on what the eighth wonder in the world is, but as soon as you lay your eyes on this location, there will cease to be a debate. The location is filled with glaciers that date all the way back to the Ice Age; the historic location is surreal and is filled with Ice Mountains and waterfalls. There are two ways to enjoy the grandeur of Milford Sound; you can either take a guided tour of the entire location or go for a kayaking trip, where you can experience the epicness of it all and come across wildlife such as penguins and dolphins. We suggest that you do both since the guided tour can give you a grasp of how amazing Milford Sound is and the kayaking tour will be a story to tell your grandkids one day. We suggest that you stay at the Milford Sound Lodge that gives you great prices and package deals for tours and trekking trips.
