Everyone knows that South Island is extreme sports and activity central! Check out this list for your next adrenaline junky fix.
Leisurely lunches at award winning wineries, scenic lake cruises, long drives and slow walks. If this sounds like your cup of tea, then South Island has everything you need for a relaxed holiday.
North island or South island? I prefer South Island hands down (visited 4 times and counting). Dramatic landscapes, Great Lakes, snow sports, bungy, skydiving, are all found in South Island. And I’m really not a fan of smelly sulphur springs (found in North Island).
This was my itinerary for my first trip to NZ in 2009, and is best suited for the energetic traveller who wants to see a lot and do a lot.
This particular itinerary was crafted for a trip with my 60+ year old parents. It is very suitable for families with older folks and/or young children as the pace is very relaxed with more family-oriented activities
