One of the best things about the South Island of New Zealand is that it packs in such a wonderful variety of stunning scenery, that normally you’d have to travel through multiple countries to experience.

Mountains, fjords, sweeping coastal roads, rolling vineyards, majestic forests and bush, highlands and valleys, they’re all here. And nestled among them, characterful towns and cities, wonderful destinations in their own right.
