21 Photos to Inspire you to visit New Zealand’s South Island
Discover the natural beauty of New Zealand’s South Island.
From our travels over the past ten years, we’ve experienced a few road trips from France to our honeymoon in Australia. Our first road trip in a campervan was on New Zealand’s South Island – don’t you just love being able to stop wherever and whenever you want to to catch those hidden gems. That is the essence of road tripping!
You can’t escape the pure natural beauty of New Zealand’s South Island. The South Island is a larger and less populated island compared to the North Island. New Zealand’s South Island has mouth dropping mountains, Fiords, lakes, glaciers and wildlife. A stop off at the adventure town Queenstown is a must. For the adventurers and adrenaline junkies, choose from several activities from bungy jumping, sky diving to white water rafting and skiing in the Winter season. Did we do anything crazy in Queenstown? Of course we did. We opted for the the Nevis Arc Swing … the biggest swing in the world!
Here’s a few reasons to visit the South Island:
- Experience the adrenaline rush at Queenstown
- Hike on the glaciers at Fox Glacier and Frans Josef Glacier
- Spot the penguins at Oamaru
- Waking up to the stunning views of Lake Hawea and Lake Wanaka
- Discover Milford Sound by boat
- Visit the wineries in Central Otago and sample their famous Pinot Noir
There’s so much to see and do and we only scratched the surface. We would love to return to this amazing place one day and explore the sights which we missed out on our first visit.
Let’s show you our favourites moments during our road trip around the island:
