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.

Iceland: The Ultimate Travel Guide by TourRadar 1/5

Iceland: The Ultimate Travel Guide by TourRadar gives you all the info you need to explore the island of fire and ice like a pro. 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.
-----------------------------------------------
Iceland has something for every traveller, no matter if you’re looking to relax or channel your inner thrill seeker. If you want to chill out then you must visit Blue Lagoon, the ultimate geothermal spa in the country, located in a lava field in Grindavik. Of course, there’s plenty of natural springs scattered throughout the country, many along the Reykjanes Peninsula. The rich minerals will leave your skin feeling brand new. Once you’re relaxed and ready for an adventure you’ll want to add a few hiking trails to your list of must-have experiences. Take a walk through Thingvellier National Park or the Latrabjarg Cliffs, go river rafting down Hvita River, snorkel through the Silfra ravine or even kayak between fjords in Ísafjörðu.

Travelling along Iceland’s Ring Road (which covers the entire circumference of the country) will allow you to cross off these essential Icelandic bucket list items with ease. Booking a tour will ensure your trip is fun, flawless and stress-free:

Remember to pack your waterproof hiking boots, waterproof rain jacket, swimsuit, flip flops, thin gloves, hiking socks, sunglasses, and a camera with extra batteries.

Iceland’s currency is the Icelandic krona. The country is a mostly cashless society so don’t hesitate to back your debit and credit cards as they are likely to be accepted everywhere. Alcohol and restaurant meals can be more expensive than one might anticipate so bring enough cash to accommodate your needs.

---About Iceland---

Iceland, the land of fire and ice, exists on a remote island between Norway and Greenland and boasts a modest population of just over 300,000 people. You’ll soon discover that there are plenty of reasons to make your next vacation an Icelandic one.

Roughly 10% of the country’s surface is covered by glaciers and there are 130 volcanoes spread throughout, 18 of which have erupted since the settlement of Iceland 1100 years ago. Nearly 60% of the nation’s entire population live in the capital city of Reykjavik and those who do not are scattered sparsely throughout its rural countryside.

NEW ZEALAND TRAVEL & PACKING TIPS: Campervan Packing List

NEW ZEALAND TRAVEL & PACKING TIPS: Campervan Packing List

Upcoming Campervan trip through New Zealand or Australia? Here's a quick list of 10 Top Items to bring on a New Zealand campervan trip that you may have not thought about bringing with you.

Most of the items should just be purchased when you are in New Zealand or Australia. The one thing I bought ahead of time is the

Bestek 300 Watt Power Inverter. This thing is a beast and worth its weight in gold on a campervan trip. Buy it on Amazon for less than $30 USD here:

In March 2016, we spent six weeks living out of a WickedCamper Campervan. The items we describe in the video are essential items that made our extended backpacker camping trip that much better. When you have a few luxuries with you, it makes a huge difference.

ABOUT US:
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.

EXPLORING MILFORD SOUND! | Ultimate New Zealand Travel Tips.

in this video I am EXPLORING MILFORD SOUND during my New Zealand road trip as I travel around the South Island of New Zealand. I hope you find this video helpful and like my tips for seeing Milford Sound.

Hey guys! My name is Marie and for the past three years I have been wondering around the globe. Often getting lost, often screwing up, but most importantly seeing incredible places, meeting beautiful souls and living life to the fullest.
I am 26 and I am a digital nomad. Working online to fund my travels is one way I have supported myself over the past three years.
But I have also experienced working in New Zealand and Australia on Working Holidays, House Sitting, Work exchange volunteering and so much more.

On my channel I share my journey (every bit of it, even the bad parts) and I share with you how I make it all happen, each and every step of the way.

Thank you SO much for checking out my channel. I always appreciate it when others LIKE and SUBSCRIBE to see more of my content and to follow my incredible journey along the way.

For a 7 day adventure... check out:
Otherwise continue reading!

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!!

To save on accommodation, use this link and get $25 off your hotel booking... 🙂👍🏼

I am Aileen Adalid. At 21, I quit my corporate job in the Philippines to travel the world. Today, I am a digital nomad and entrepreneur living a sustainable travel lifestyle.

My mission? To show you that a life of travel is NOT only for the rich and that it is absolutely possible to explore the globe no matter the odds that there may be — take it from me who was born in a third world country with a limited passport (and who also used to be broke ✌🏻).

As such, I will help you achieve your travel goals through my detailed travel guides, resources, and tips. But above all, I hope that my story and my videos will inspire you to go after your dreams!

So come with me on this crazy journey as I bring the world to you! Adventure, fun, inspiration, and tips — you'll find it all here.

New Zealand is a backpackers paradise with it’s two main islands packed with adventure, adrenaline sports and stunning sceneries. But with such beauty can come a hefty price tag! For the budget conscious backpacker, New Zealand can seem like a challenging place to make every single dollar stretch, but with the introduction of working holiday visas, more and more travellers are moving their way through the country and saving money as they go!
