New Zealand: Our favorite places in the South Island

New Zealand: Our favorite places in the South Island


  1. Heather

    Stunning photos guys! I visited New Zealand a few years ago and your photos brought back a flood of memories. The country really is that beautiful! Milford Sound, Abel Tasman, and Mount Cook were among our highlights. As far as the cities, Wellington was our favorite.
    Thanks for the trip down memory lane 🙂

    Your post is like a collection of amazing postcards! Such beautiful scenery! I’ve never been to New Zealand but love to go there one day. There are so many places worth seeing, it’s hard to pick one. I have the idea that is a rather expensive destination. Did you find it pricey?

    The South Island is my fave part of New Zealand – such beautiful contrasts with glaciers, mountains, oceans, waterfalls and wonderful animals. I didn’t see the Moeraki Boulders though, they look amazing.

    Great post – you have captured the best that the South Island has to offer, in my opinion. The Caitlins and Milford Sound are especially beautiful. Did you manage to see any yellow eyed penguins while you were in the area? We saw one in the wild, but from very far away.

    Ah beautiful photos! As a New Zealander I haven’t actually explored half of these places (embarrassing I know!) I am from the North Island and I think you don’t often explore enough of your own country. You have just motivated me to explore more of the South!

    Wow, amazing photos.
    I just started with Work & Travel here in New Zealand and all the places you mentioned are on my list what I want to see, hopefully I will have enough time to do so.
    Badly I will not have much time for the north island, when my plans work out the way I want them to work.

    Really looking forward to see all these places 0.0

    Thank you for the interesting insights here in the blog. We were last in New Zealand (South and North Island) 5 years ago. Now we are planning our next trip to the other side of the world. In February we start again ; -)
