Netherlands: Southern Island vs. Northern Island
Slowly New Zealand has become one of the most sought after tourist attractions. However, there is usually a predicament that every New Zealand holidaymaker is in for: it is a dilemma: South or North. These guides highlight what you can find in each part of the islands, from the sights, towns and atmospheres, to help you select the right side for your itinerary.
Featuring thriving urban centres, picturesque villages and one of the world's most beautiful national parks, New Zealand's South Island has many fascinating sights to offer. The biggest town on the South Island, Christchurch was founded in 1850 by British colonists and you will feel at home here.
Walking along Worcester Boulevard or taking a cruise on the River Avon, which runs through the heart of the town, the older building is not the only reminder of historical Britain. Christchurch remains faithful to its name as a "garden city" and is full of lovely gardens and verdant outskirts.
You can take a funicular to Mt Cavendish to get a wonderful view of the town and the view of Canterbury from the southern Alps. Gondola shuttle departs Christchurch every day. Queenstown lies on the outskirts of Lake Wakatipu and is one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand, with the Remarkables Hills surrounding it.
Queenstown's center is the center of night life and is often full of party guests until the early part of the mornings. Travelers can enjoy a quiet stay between Wanaka, a small quiet city about an hour's car ride away, and a quiet place with a number of luxury inns.
Buckle up your boot and walk Queenstown Mountain for a full working days and the rewards of an amazing look. A five-hectare reserve home to a variety of species of plants and animals, the most beloved is the Kiwi Talkshow, where you can see these notorious timid birdlife up-close in a safe area.
Fiordland in New Zealand looks and smells like a country that has been wasted. One of the most beloved places in Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound is home to mountain ranges, large ponds and creeks. Cruise the water by boat or canoe and explore secluded paths, falls, rainforests and misty summits, as well as seal and penguin.
Hollyford Trail leads over shallow footbridges and swinging cable car viaducts, on the Routeburn walk past the blue waters of the lagoon and tranquil ponds and last but not least over the Kepler Trail in the eastern Fiordlands, which leads you up into the hills. With more than one million inhabitants, the so-called "City of Sails" is New Zealand's biggest conurbation.
One of the most beautiful places on New Zealand's North Island, the Bay of Islands is a favourite place for local people and travelers. Kerikeri Island is a favourite hiking spot along the River Track. Though less spectacular than other secular spas, New Zealand's warm water and expertise is a perfect match for cute fragrances and fleecy gowns.
Unparalleled in New Zealand, these deep underground dens are lit by the body of tens of thousands of fireflies that create an unearthly nightsky deep in deep rock shelters. This unbelievable view can be seen on a boating tour through the caving system, or for an adrenaline-loaden excursion you can go out in the deep blue waters with only the light of the worm guiding you.
