The tallest peak in the Southern Alps, and where Sir Edmund Hillary practised his skills in preparation for his Everest adventure. So, from mountain walks to elite mountaineering, there’s a way to enjoy this spectacular part of the world whatever your fitness or experience level.

4. Bathe In The Beauty Of The Bay Of Islands

The views throughout this sub-tropical dream destination are something you won’t ever forget. From here you can practise your paragliding skills, scuba dive and even go swimming with dolphins. Total dream come true.

5. Chill In Coromandel On Your New Zealand Road Trip

Journeying to the Coromandel Peninsula is like stepping straight into paradise. If picturesque beaches and crystal-clear shimmering turquoise waters weren’t enough, you can even dig a hole in the sand at the hot water beach and relax in the hot thermal spring water!

6. Wondrous Waitomo

The rolling green hills of Waitomo are spectacularly beautiful, but it’s the incredible labyrinthine caves that really steal the show. Some of the caves are famous for their stunning stalactites and stalagmites.
