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.

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.

Beautiful Queenstown Highlights - South Island, New Zealand

This video is about my first trip to Queenstown New Zealand in late August 2013. I fell in love with the town as soon as I stepped out of the airplane. Hope you will love Queenstown as much as I do!
It is also one of the earliest video editing I have done with iMovie, I was very new to it and not 100% sure what I was doing. Now I realized the video has dragged too long and very amateur. Sorry for that. :) Please try the better version at

Road Trip New Zealand South Island - 2017

Once again we fell under the charm of New Zealand. Here's a glimpse of our second road trip across the South Island. We loved driving along the winding roads, camping by the rough seashore, getting lost in NZ unique wilderness and feeling the force of the elements on our skin. A few reasons why we feel deeply attached to this tiny country at the other end of our world.

As it was our second trip in NZ South Island, we skipped touristic hot spots and had the chance to discover plenty of hidden gems.
I really love returning to the same country. No Must-see or Must-do, just the sheer pleasure and excitement of traveling.

Here is our 6-week road trip itinerary in South Island (for a second trip) :
- Christchurch
- Kaikoura
- Abel Tasman (3 days Great Walk trek)
- West Coast (my favourite part : Westport to Greymouth)
- Wanaka (Isthmus peak hike)
- Southland
- Catlins
- Dunedin
- Oamaru
- Mt Cook National Park
- Akaora
- Banks Peninsula
- Christchurch
