One of the furthest places to get to in the world from the UK is New Zealand – but despite the lengthy travelling time, it is still one of the most popular places to go and is a place that many people have on their holiday bucket list. Here are some of the reasons that New Zealand is such a popular holiday destination…
New Zealand has a wide range of climates to enjoy, it is made up of two islands, and had a huge and varied landscape that is incredibly beautiful. If you want scenery that takes your breath away head up to Franz Josef and see the glaciers. You can enjoy trekking them which is a real once in a lifetime experience that will take your breath away.
If you decide on doing New Zealand self drive holidays you will really be able to get out and see the more remote areas of the country that are so stunning. Visit the Tongariro crossing where you can walk across this fantastic landscape that will have you feeling as though you are in another world. It is the place where they filmed the Lord of the Rings movies too, so film fans will be in their element.
As well as the fantastic natural landscapes, visit New Zealand’s capital, Wellington. This fun city is full of cafes and culture – amazing museums and art galleries, as well as a pretty harbour perfect for a stroll. If you want to get a view from above head up to Mount Victoria and you will look down on the whole city.
