Asset 5-131x223 New Zealand

New Zealand is a multi-cultural hub filled with natural wonders. From volcanoes to glaciers, the country has an incredibly diverse terrain for families to explore together. Rent a car or hire a camper, and you can drive from Christchurch to Queenstown on the south island, where thrill-seekers can partake in extreme sports like sky diving, bungee jumping, and speed boating on Lake Wakatipu. Along the way, you’ll also witness Lake Tekapo, Mount Cook, and the Tasman Glacier, as well as the pristine lakes of Wanaka, which are in proximity to the UNESCO site of Aspiring National Park. Extend your trip toward New Zealand’s west coast, and you can stop to take in the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers, both of which are very awe-inspiring. If you decide to ride along the east coast, however, you’ll find that the small city of Kaikoura is perfect for whale-watching year round! On the north island, visit major cities like Wellington for Zealandia, a kiwi sanctuary that also features New Zealand wildlife, and Auckland, which offers educational museums and sparkling beaches. Movie lovers can also make a special pilgrimage to Matamata for a tour of the Hobbiton, a picturesque sheep farm instantly recognizable from its depiction in the Lord of the Ring series. At the very tip of New Zealand, children can traverse the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, one of the only places to see the rare species native to the country.
