Be warned: a month in New Zealand and you'll never want to leave. Starting in the North Island, take two weeks to visit the major sites, hike, and hit the beaches before catching the ferry to Picton. From there, make your way down the east coast, for whale-watching at Kaikoura, then head to the rebuilt Christchurch, and make your way to New Zealand's beautiful adventure capital, Queenstown. Circle back up the west coast and finish your trip in Auckland. Your month in New Zealand will go by fast!
