Tailor Made Holiday Travel New Zealand
Tailor Made Holiday Travel In New Zealand
Covering an area equivocal in size to the United Kingdom, a full quarter of New Zealand is classified as protected wilderness. In the meantime, with New Zealand being home to just 4 million people (the equivalent population of central London), the country as a whole is still largely pristine and pollution free. This makes New Zealand resonate with a distinct untouched atmosphere of adventure and exploration. However, which New Zealand destinations should you absolutely not miss when planning your own New Zealand adventure holiday?
The Southern Alps
Running almost the entire length of New Zealand’s South Island, the Southern Alps are dominated at their center by Mount Cook, New Zealand’s highest mountain. However, while most will probably not choose to scale Mt Cook for themselves, at the base of the mountain lake tours can be undertaken which take in the full beauty of the area. In fact, inland icebergs from glaciers which terminate into the lake can even be encountered making touring the area truly breathtaking.
Carved by since retreated glaciers in New Zealand’s ice age, Milford Sound is home to the most impressive fjords outside of Norway. In fact, Rudyard Kipling even went so far as to christen Milford Sound as the world’s eight natural wonder. Rising up to 1000 meters, guarding fjord cliffs make for spectacular sunrises and sunsets, something which makes an overnight cruise around Milford Sound a must for those in search of awe-inspiring scenery and natural fauna and flora.
Drained by the mighty Huka Water Falls, lake Taupo is new Zealand’s largest lake and renowned around the world for its turquoise waters. Home to a local fishing and boating paradise, Lake Taupo has everything from iconic scenery to jet boat and yachting attractions which make the area the quintessential place to unwind whilst right in the center of natural geothermal park land and iconic Maori culture.
