Franz Josef or Fox Glacier? Which one to choose? Our plans for visiting the Westland National Park were (as usual!) very ambitious… Of course, we had to visit both 🙂 New Zealand glaciers are one of the country’s greatest attractions, next to a kiwi bird and spectacular fjords.

Discovering majestic Fiordland – top things to do

Milford Sound cruise definitely should be on your bucket list. But what else you should do to explore Fiordland better?

What do you think when you hear “fjords”? Most likely – Norway. But did you know that you can also find them down under? The South Island in New Zealand is home to the magical Fiordland National Park. Many believe that this is actually the most beautiful region in this country. We found our beloved place somewhere else, however, Fiordland, particularly Milford Sound and Lake Te Anau, left us speechless.

The Catlins – the most beautiful area in New Zealand?

What to see in Catlins? The best attractions in Catlins, the most beautiful place in New Zealand - our guide.

Usually tourists skip this region. While Rotorua and the Fiordland are rather crowded places, we didn’t meet tons of people in the Catlins. On the other hand, also not many kiwis live here permanently – only around 1200 people. That’s a pity! The Catlins, located in the south of the South Island, is just loaded with spectacular landscapes, wonders of nature and unique animals! We still haven’t decided, but I think the Catlins may be the most beautiful region we visited in New Zealand… Look at the pics below and decide yourself!

Te Puia, Rotorua

Sincerely, I must admit that our New Zealand trip didn’t start as planned. Due to the huge rainfall, we couldn’t reach our first attraction – the Hot Water Beach, because all the roads were closed. After a quick glance at the map, we decided that we would spend two days (instead of one as planned) in Rotorua – this turned out to be the brilliant idea!
