Must-see places in New Zealand


Auckland is the country’s economic capital and most populous city. It’s a cosmopolitan and dynamic city. Its proximity to beaches also makes it an ideal destination for water sports enthusiasts.


Wellington may be less well known, but it remains New Zealand’s political capital. Here you can visit the Te Papa National Museum and the surrounding wild beaches. Mount Victoria and the Botanical Gardens offer the best panoramic view of the city and its surroundings.


If you’re looking for M?ori culture, visit Rotorua. You’ll find the villages of Whakarewarewa (Te Puia) and Tamaki, where you can enjoy traditional performances. You can also enjoy the Wai-o-Tapu and Waimangu geothermal valleys and their hot springs. Rotorua is also home to Hobbiton, near Matamata. Discover the famous Shire imagined by Tolkien.

The Bay of Islands

The Bay of Islands is made up of 144 fantastically scenic islands. Rich in marine life, it’s the ideal place to observe migrating dolphins and whales. You can also see the Haruru Falls. To finish your tour of the North Island, fly over Tongariro National Park. It is home to three active volcanoes: Togariro, Ngauruhee and Ruapehu, and numerous craters. The beauty of the site has earned it UNESCO World Heritage status since 1990.

South Island

Christchurch is the island’s main city and the ideal place to observe traditional British architecture inherited from colonization. Another place of interest: the Re-Mall. It’s a shopping complex created after the 2011 earthquake, where stores are housed in containers.
Queenstown is the island’s tourist hub. Here you’ll find numerous hotels, restaurants and bars, as well as a great nightlife. The beauty of the place lies in the surrounding mountains and its proximity to Lake Wakatipu.
Warlborough is relatively untouched by tourism. It’s the ideal place for travelers looking for peace and quiet and hiking. It’s also the country’s largest wine-growing valley, making it a popular detour for wine lovers.

Otago Peninsula

If you visit New Zealand, don’t miss the Otago Peninsula (near Dunedin). Here you can observe unspoilt wildlife, including penguins and albatrosses. This is also where you’ll find the country’s only castle: Larnache Castle.
