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.

AMAZING NEW ZEALAND ROAD TRIP // Travel Tips + Advice

During the Christmas/New Years 2017 I got the opportunity to go to New Zealand on a road trip.

The main purpose of the trip was for James to go home and see his friends and family so we spent most of the time in Wellington.

In Wellington we went to a bunch of really cute places like
- Cuba street (Super Hipster)
- Midnight Espresso (Vegan options)
- Flight coffee (Amazing cold brew)
- Royal Botanic Gardens
- Cable car
- Mt Victoria
- Oriental Bay Boat Sheds

We also went to the Gallipoli exhibit at Te Papa which was made by Weta Workshops (Peter Jackson's company) and was the most amazing exhibit I have ever seen.

We also went away for a day with James' friends Brandon and Robbie to Lake Ferry and got to stop at a couple of Wineries in Martinborough. The drive was really fun and windy. We ended up playing board games, drinking wine and staying in a caravan.
We then went on a road trip for 1 week around the north island
- Auckland 1 night
- Karekare falls
- Piha beach
- NYE in Tauranga
- Rotorua
- The luge
- Hobbiton
- Huka falls
- Craters of the moon
- Lake Taupo
- Marton on the way home

Food
-try the fries
-l&p
-steak
-any bakery
-the pizza library

Regrets
- not spending enough time
- not bringing warmer clothes
- not bringing cash
- not bringing enough space in my suitcases

FAQ:
What month did we travel? July/August (Winter)

What rental company did we go through? Britz! The key is to pick-up and drop off in Christchurch. We also didn’t pay the insurance premiums through the company. Instead, we booked it through a 3rd party provider. My final tip, is to book it through a comparison website to get the best deal... for example Motorhome Republic! To be exact, our booking was $452.25 NZD for 9 days... what a winter special!

Where do you park at night? Some places you can free camp it, others you can't. We did a bit of both. However, on really cold nights we stayed at sites so we could use our extra portable heater which runs on power!!
