We’ve already developed a list of things we want to do and places we want to hike next visit!

@Dana: Hope you enjoyed following along on our trip through New Zealand and got some ideas for your own trip. Such a stunning place.

@Sophia: Taupo was one of the places we missed, unfortunately. Have heard great things about it, and hear that the skydiving there is also good. Next time!

@Ellie: We also preferred Wellington to Auckland. Just wish we had more time there :)

Just wanted to thank you for sharing your experiences in New Zealand. Your pictures are stunning. I have recently just been on safari to a place called Gondwana private game reserve. I think you two would love it.

Like you it was one place I always wanted to go to. It didn’t disappoint!

As mentioned the 5:30am dolphin swim is a must! We swam with a pod of 150+! Also check out Nins Bin for fresh crayfish.

Mount cook area – lots of short (and long) tramps (that’s hiking in NZ speak). Sealy Tarns can be done in an afternoon and you will be rewarded with spectacular views.

Hokitika Gorge – the most turquoise river you will find anywhere! About 30 mins off main highway between Punakaiki and Franz Josef.

Queenstown – canyoning, Shotover jet, luge – all good fun! Fergburger is a must. Flames is a good meat restaurant if you like a good steak!

Abel Tasman – wilsons do a good kayak / hike trip if not already sorted.

Based on our experience in New Zealand so far, there’s good reason (plenty of them, actually) why people find themselves drawn here.

It almost seems as if N.Z. is calling me to it’s shores, wherever I turn it keeps popping up at me, on the internet, in conversations, a book at the library…too bad it’s so darn far and away, but someday…someday.

Thanks for the great suggestions. Hoping we can at least take advantage of Ohau Point and a few of the trips in and around Christchurch, including Akaroa.

Fergburger, I’ve heard great things. Though I’ve heard even better things about Fat Tui.

Finally, thanks for the linguistic tip. Chilly bin. Love it.

Thank you for taking the time to share all your thoughts and suggestions.

@Gretchen: Great to hear from you! Cherries the size of plums, and kiwi birds are OK, too. Love it. Thanks for all the suggestions. Am so glad to hear you had a great time in New Zealand.
