Best places to visit in New Zealand

Best places to visit in New Zealand

  • Wellington: Quirky. Creative. Cosmopolitan. New Zealand’s capital city is located on the southernmost tip of the North Island on Cook Strait. Visitors can hike in the hills, kayak on the Hutt River, and splash around at the coastal beaches. In town, you can meet up with friends over coffee at a local cafe before touring Te Papa and the Beehive (New Zealand’s national museum and government center).
  • Queenstown: Nestled on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and surrounded by mountains, the South Island city is known for its adventure sports, such as bungee jumping and jet boating. Visitors can take a tour at a local vineyard or pan for gold in the old mining town of Arrowtown nearby. Fans of the Lord of the Rings movies can explore the scenery and even some of the sets from the films.
  • Kaikōura: People come to this South Island town to watch the seals, whales and birds that live in the waters at the town’s edge. You can even go swimming with the dolphins! The Peninsula Walkway offers excellent views of the water and wildlife. Drive your car rental in New Zealand into town where you can stop at the local shops and cafes, and sample the crayfish, a local favorite.
Winter in New Zealand

Winter in New Zealand

In New Zealand, December through February are the warmest and driest months of the year. It’s a great time to relax on the white sands of Rarawa Beach or the black sands of Karekare Beach. Surfers flock to the waters around Taranaki and Raglan and other great surfing spots. Others cool off by heading to higher altitudes, and there are plenty of mountains to explore. You can even hike on a glacier in Westland Tai Poutini National Park or on a volcano in Tongariro National Park.
