If you are making plans for your first trip to New Zealand, or if you are planning to go back there to see more of its beauty, you may want to check out this list in order to not miss out on the beautiful sights of New Zealand.
Bay of Islands
The Bay of Islands is one of the top places to go when you are New Zealand for sailing, fishing and for other watersports. It is about three hours from Auckland by car. This beautiful place consists of 144 islands between Cape Brett and the Purerua Peninsula.
Milford Sound, New Zealand
Milford Sound was referred to as the “eighth wonder of the world” by Rudyard Kipling, when you visit this place, you’ll see for yourself why. The best way to have a proper view of Milford Sound is from a boat. Take a cruise to sightsee of the fjord to see the wildlife and waterfalls. You can navigate the waters on a kayaking tour.
When you experience the water from the surface, then you should go underneath- visit the Milford Discovery Centre and Underwater Observatory.
Auckland, New Zealand
Being the largest city in New Zealand and its international air travel hub, this is one of the best places to visit in New Zealand. You have to stay for at least one or two nights in Auckland. There are so many things you’ll love to do in Auckland. Here are few of them- visit the Auckland Art Gallery (the largest art institution in New Zealand), take a stroll the Auckland Domain Park; if the weather is nice, you can as well stop over at the Parnell Farmers’ Market if you are visiting on a Saturday.
White Island, New Zealand
This is the most active volcano in the country, so we recommend this region for adventurous travelers. Your stroll at the White Island won’t be leisurely; you’ll have to wear a hard hat and a gas mask because this is a very active volcano. If the conventional helicopter tour of the island isn’t your thing, you can still explore the volcano via other ways like taking a boat to White Island.
