Are you thinking about taking a trip to New Zealand? If you said yes, the best thing you can do is make sure that you know some of the best sightseeing spots.
Your vacation should be memorable and special. It should be so exciting that you don’t want to leave, and when you finally do return home, you can’t stop talking about it.
To make this happen, you find the best places to visit in New Zealand. The following guide will give you just what you need to enjoy your time in this beautiful country.
1. Get Up Close to a Volcano
White Island is often classified as the country’s most active volcano. In order to get a good view, it’s best to hover over it via a helicopter ride.
If you are brave enough to walk on the island itself, be prepared to wear a gas mask in addition to a hard hat. However, it doesn’t end there. You can also go scuba diving around the island and get a look at its vents from under the water.
2. Queenstown Fun
Queenstown is often referred to as the adventure capital of the country. If you are going to New Zealand in winter (which is between June and October) then skiing on the slopes will be a great adventure whether you are a beginner or a veteran.
Year-round, you can enjoy jet boating, rafting on a river, bungee jumping, and even skydiving — if you’re brave enough.
3. Glowworm Caves
Even if you have been to caves before you cannot afford to miss a visit to the Waitomo Glowworm Caves. The caves are full of lights, but if that wasn’t unusual enough, the fact that it is illuminated by thousands of glowworms will really blow your mind.
Experience the magic by taking boat rides through the caves while learning the science behind this extraordinary phenomenon.
4. Aukland Art Paradise
If you love art then you cannot go to New Zealand without making a visit to Aukland. The Aukland Art Gallery boasts one of the most impressive and vast collections in the world. Get ready to see over fifteen thousand pieces of art in several genres.
However, art is not just the only thing you can experience in Aukland. The cuisine is amazing and there are adventurous activities such as the Aukland bridge climb. You can even bungee jump off the cliff if you like.
There are hotel suites available that allow you to stay close to the action and culture as well, so there is no need to worry about accommodation.
