New Zealand: The Ultimate Travel Guide by TourRadar 5/5

New Zealand: The Ultimate Travel Guide by TourRadar gives you all the info you need to explore this nation of Kiwis. Learn some basics about the country, including what you have to do & see once you arrive, when it's best to travel and which food & drinks you definitely need to enjoy throughout your journey.
New Zealand has a lot to offer even the most particular traveller. From the lively neighbourhoods of Wellington to the breathtaking Fiordland of the South Island, there's an adventure tucked away in every corner of this impressive country. Consider living out your own Lord of the Rings adventure in Hobbiton, or hike past Mt. Doom in Tongariro National Park. Not thrilling enough? Then skydive over Auckland, go white water rafting down Kaituna River or take a leap of faith and bungee jump in Queenstown! When you're in New Zealand, nearly ever adventure is only a stone's throw away.

Make the most out of your visit to this remote island nation by assembling your bucket list with our travel guide. Booking a tour will ensure your trip is fun, flawless and stress-free:

New Zealand boasts a temperate climate with plenty of sunshine and moderate rainfall. Because of the long coast line, you can expect mild temperatures for the most part. The average temperature decreases as you travel south; January and February are the warmest months with July being the coldest month of the year. Remember to pack your waterproof hiking boots, waterproof rain jacket, swimsuit, flip flops, thin gloves, hiking socks, sunglasses, and a camera with extra batteries.

New Zealand's currency is the New Zealand Dollar (NZ$). You should expect to be able to switch between cash and cards quite seamlessly, as all major credit cards can be used in New Zealand. Alcohol and restaurant meals can range from moderate to quite expensive so prepare yourself accordingly.

We'd like to thank New Zealand's incredible tourism board for allowing use of their travel footage:

---About New Zealand---

New Zealand, exists on a remote island in the Pacific Ocean and is home to over 4.6 million people, and nearly 30 million sheep.

The country is divided into two portions: the North and South Islands separated by the Cook Strait. The North Island is home to many hot springs and geysers while the South Island is mountainous, forested and covered in glaciers. Over 75% of New Zealanders call the North Island home, and more than 15% of New Zealand's energy comes from renewable resources.

SCENIC NEW ZEALAND ROAD TRIP! Spectacular South Island

Road tripping in a camper van around the South Island of New Zealand has been an absolute dream. I don’t think I’ve ever fallen in love with a country’s scenic beauty such as New Zealand. We got to soak in onsen pools with stunning views, hike to some scenic glaciers, experience thrills and heights in Queenstown, saw the most beautiful and bluest lakes I have ever seen, and felt a deep connection with nature while being here. I’m so grateful I had a local guide (James) right there with me so we could experience these things together. Is New Zealand on your bucket list now?

Since we did freedom camping in a self-contained camper van, we were able to stay in a lot of places for free or for very cheap! The company we ended up booking with (and the best value for money in our opinion!) is Affordable Motor Homes. (Not sponsored btw!)

The apps we used to locate camping spots:
Camper Mate

The company we used to book the Milford Sound Cruise:
Go Orange

The highlight of our trip for me was definitely swimming with dolphins!!!

New Zealand Road Trip: Ep 2 - Backpacking the South Island

I return to New Zealand for a 7 week road trip around both the North and South Island in this 2 part documentary series.

Episode 2 I travel to the South Island by myself, meeting up with a couple of friends along the way.

Beginning in Nelson to explore the Abel Tasman National Park, I then head south to Franz Josef for a helicopter ride and a sky dive over the glacier.

In Wanaka, I tackle Roys Peak before moving on to Queenstown, to hike Ben Lommond, try out the Canyon Swing, the Canyon Fox Swing, Shotover Jet Boating plus exploring Glenorchy and Paradise.

There's Lord of the Rings locations galore on the way to Doubtful Sound. Following this I catch up with my old Kiwi Experience bus driver in Dunedin.

Finally I have one last trip up into the mountains to see Aoraki, Mt Cook, plus Mt Sunday otherwise known as Edoras.

We’re traveling full time, living on our own terms and showing you the up-close-and-personal details of us figuring it out along the way. Sometimes it’s about navigating big, life-altering decisions. Sometimes it’s about navigating the seemingly lawless free-for-all that is driving in Hanoi. It’s moments of triumph and moments of panic. The good, the bad, the ugly – and most importantly, the real and real funny.

We’re not here to tell you “how it’s done.” Just how we’ve done it. And that whatever it is that’s calling you - the way you’ll do it is much more attainable than it may seem. We believe the world’s a more interesting place when people reject convention in favor of what they actually care about. This is us putting that idea to the test – one budget spreadsheet, RV renovation and mountain-peak drone video at a time.
