290 Montreal St, Christchurch Central, Christchurch 8013, New Zealand
I am a coffee-seeker. When traveling to a new area or country, I will always try the local brew. So, after tasting the typical New Zealand flat white and long black, I had to try the Thunder Thighs; a decadent and decked out mochaccinno from my...

2 Lakeside Dr, Lake Tekapo 7990, New Zealand
View of a quiet sunset on Lake Tekapo from the Holiday Park where we were staying. We took a bottle of bubbly down to the dock and enjoyed the view until twilight.
Save Place
Queenstown is known as the adrenaline capital of New Zealand, and it is indeed populated by speed junkies and bungie pros and mountain bikers with death wishes. However, if you sidle up the mountain that cradles the town, past the gondola, around...
Save Place
Milford Sound 9679, New Zealand
My husband and I spent the night in our campervan listening to the rain pelt the roof- concerned that we wouldn't be able to kayak on Milford Sound the following day. Nothing could have prepared us for the glorious sunrise the next morning and the...

169 Haven St, Moeraki 9482, New Zealand
Straight from the boat to your plate, it doesn't get any better than this. Fleur Sullivan's fantastic restaurant on the water in tiny Moeraki Village on the coast of North Otago (near Dunedin) is truly a destination restaurant. Plan your trip...

Lake Wakatipu, Otago, New Zealand
Autumn on the South Island of New Zealand was colorful enough to remind me of the trees at home, although back in New England, we don't have massive towering mountains looming over our deciduous foliage (I love you, White Mountains, but you ain't...
Save Place
Punakaiki, New Zealand
Every road in New Zealand leads to an even more epic landscape than the last. Is there one unsightly area in all of New Zealand? I think not!
Save Place
Lake Tekapo 7999, New Zealand
Lake Tekapo is a sweet little slice of heaven, and a paradise you'll have all to your own, should you visit outside the high season. The glacial waters running out of the Southern Alps are every bit as mesmerizing as they are refreshing - which is...
Save Place
Oamaru, New Zealand
Oamaru is a Victorian town with a twist. Townspeople actually wear vests, trousers, wide-brimmed hats, and long dresses. There are shops where you can find a bookbinder working away with a whale bone. You can partake in cucumber sandwiches, tea,...

Okuti Garden, a bed-and-breakfast with yurt accommodations, features a solar shower and an organic garden. Use the shared semi-outdoor kitchen or dine in the main house, where chefs prepare feasts made from homegrown ingredients. —Kellie Schmitt ...

Banks Peninsula, Canterbury 7581, New Zealand
The Banks Peninsula just south of Christchurch is a magical place with rolling hills and long harbors. Really a best kept secret on the South Island.
Save Place
Lake Tekapo, Canterbury 7999, New Zealand
Even on a cloudy day, Lake Tekapo's brilliant shades of blue are caused by "rock flour" - finely ground particles of rock from the glaciers at the head of the lake and suspended in the melt water. The treeline is comprised of Monterey Pines which...
Save Place
Lake Tekapo 7999, New Zealand
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...

3 Simpson Ln, Lake Tekapo 7945, New Zealand
I had been traveling the South Island of New Zealand for 2 weeks with the Magic Bus and this was one of my last stops. The reason I decided to do the flight over Lake Tekapo & Mt. Cook was because my helicopter tour of Franz Josef including the...

19 Killarney St, Kaikoura 7300, New Zealand
A trip to Kaikoura isn't complete without eating fresh cray, strolling along the headlands and meeting the seals. Secure in our kayak, my friend and I paddled with our guide out into the ocean, watching the seals sunbathing and splashing on rocky...
