Hunt for Summertime Lupines on the South Island

As if New Zealand couldn't be more picturesque, in the summertime (roughly December through February), the South Island is covered with incredible pink and purple lupines.

The best place to see the fields of lupines are around Lake Tekapo in the South Island, though I've seen them in different areas all the way to the Milford Sound.

Just be careful and pull completely off the road or in a designated pull-off area before taking photos.
