Milford Sound New Zealand

What makes a trip to New Zealand so special?

For most travellers, a trip to New Zealand feels like a must do in a lifetime. The two islands provide a stark contrast from one another. The Northern half is a south Pacific Island that has typical idyllic palm fringed beaches. The south stretches to glacial fjords, and sprawling mountain ranges.

Milford Sound, New Zealand was once described by author Rudyard Kiplimg as the ‘eighth wonder of the world.’ Once you’ve seen it, it would be hard to disagree. Source: Wikipedia

All over is fertile flatlands, volcanically active wonders, and some of the best wine you’ll ever taste. Over 1000 years ago, the Maoris travelled here and called the island ‘the long white cloud’.

The strong and fearless Polynesians were hunters and gathers creating pa villages that can still be found across the country. Today New Zealand is a blend of friendly, humble people from every corner of the world.

Ask a Kiwi where their favourite destination is and they’ll describe something magical. Imagine cruising on a lake the size of Singapore. In an underground river lit up by glowworms. Or searching for Bluff oysters on New Zealand’s rugged coast.

There are a million reasons and places in New Zealand that could warrant a visit, but instead of telling you about it, we’ll just show you photos.
